Wes, a beloved husband, father, grandfather, son, brother, neighbor and friend was loved by many who surrounded him throughout his life and in his last days. Wesley E. Losli was born on December 4, 1929 at their family home in Hillsboro, Oregon. His parents Ernest Losli and Mabel Wilson Losli raised him and his siblings on the farm where they lived with his Uncle Rudy’s family. Wes and his brother would milk the cows on the family farm and then run a milk route collecting milk from the local farmers and delivering all the way into the dairy in Portland. He was always proud of their “Grade A” milk. Wes married the love of his life, Chris Johnson Losli on May 31, 1952, enjoying 67 years happily married.
