Garry Moore Wesner, was born on October 7, 1959 and passed away on June 18, 2019.
This obituary was penned by Garry himself before he passed away.
Garry was preceded in death by parents Mary Ann Wesner and Larry Lavon Wesner.
He is survived by girlfriend of 18 years, Leslie Barlow. She has been by my side through this illness and has been the best nurse/caregiver ever. She worked a full time job and came home and tended to me. He is also survived by loving companions Bear, Tiger and Gracie.
Garry was the Owner/Operator of Wesner Electric for over 31 years where he developed many special relationships with customers and vendors. He had a great passion for golf, fishing, scuba diving, martial arts and traveling where many special and long lasting friendships were made. Destinations of travels to scuba dive were Australia, Guam, Cayman Islands, Key West, Dry Tortuga’s and the many sites that Pensacola has to offer. Throughout the years he developed many special relationships, too many to mention here that lasted a lifetime.
Special thanks to dear friends Mike and Gail Whitehead. Upon hearing of cancer diagnosis, Mike put his own life on the hold and drove me to any appointments, chemo treatment and procedure that Leslie couldn’t so as to better understand the doctor’s orders and help in my recovery.
People tend to overlook the caregivers and the special people who pray regularly for your recovery but they are the very people who need your support to fill the void that has been left. These people are the most important to anyone facing the news of dying, until you face that difficult hardship it will remain hard to explain. A special thank you to all the doctors and nurses who made life a little easier to manage.
There will be no service at Garry’s request, however, a Celebration of Life will be held at a later date with friends and family.

God we thank you for this virtuous woman on this day, it shall be assessed. We pay her tribute, with honor; her children shall rise and call her blessed. We thank God for Mrs. Deloris and all the lives that she has touched .God her humble smile and beautiful heart will be missed so much and she taught us the saying that is so true, “To do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” Her legacy will shine on for the world to see and the song of this virtuous woman; let my life speak for me. There should be a rejoicing in our every cry and I can hear her saying, “For God I Live. For God I Die”. The righteous shall be rewarded with happiness not strife .Saved with the Holy Ghost the prize of everlasting life. She’s sitting with God covered in the grace and we are thankful that Mrs. Deloris made this world a better place.
Honor her for all that her hands have done and let her works bring her praise at the city gate. ~ Proverbs 31:31

Kelley Franklin Shuttlesworth’s life ended on 14 June 2019 at the age of 71. He was the husband of Karen Kemp Shuttlesworth and together they shared 44 years in Pensacola, FL creating a full life with two sons, Sean Kelley Shuttlesworth and James Erik Shuttlesworth, step son Richard Craig Lowery, daughter Kimberly Strickland and adopted daughter Sonia Qunitiliani.
He was born 1948 in Birmingham, Alabama, and was the son of Thomas Kelley Shuttlesworth and Anna Eleanor (Bailey) Shuttlesworth. His childhood was full of fun and adventures! He loved the outdoors and was voted as the “wittiest” in school. His Dad would say he was the “class clown” and always getting into mischief. As a child he traded his bicycle for a saggy old horse to the dismay of his parents. He was a loving brother to his sister, Becky Shuttlesworth Smith of Fultondale, Al. He enjoyed many days fishing with his grandparents, Leander Crathan Shuttlesworth and Wilma (Quick) Shuttlesworth on Smith Lake, AL. His “green thumb” passion for plants and flowers was a precious gift given to him by his grandfather Rudolph Bailey, Jefferson County, AL.
His father and Uncle Lloyd introduced him to music and at the age of 6, Kelley was playing the guitar and often featured on the “Country Boy Eddie Show” in Birmingham, AL. Kelley’s love of music continued his entire life as a singer, songwriter and guitarist in various bands. He was known as “Kelley Brown” to his musician friends and his group, “The Cactus Creek Band” rocked the stage for over 30 years. He dedicated 10 years supporting local musicians as an original founder, board member and “Discovery Stage” manager of Pensacola’s annual Springfest event. His federal civil service career as a welder and sheet metal mechanic spanned 23 years. Many knew him as “Coach Kelley” at Warrington Ball Park from 1983 – 1995 coaching T-Ball through 15 year-old major league. His life was full of adventures experiencing kickboxing, rodeo riding, bull riding, bow hunting, dirt bike racing and motorcycle riding. He was an eclectic collector of many antiquities most recently enthused with Native American memorabilia.
He was drafted into the U. S. Army in 1967, serving in Vietnam and was honorably discharged in 1970. He became “Tater” of the Vietnam Vets Legacy Vets Motorcycle Club on 22 June 2012. He is best known in the club for creating the “Safety” meeting patch which is widely worn in the club today. Tater and his band performed at many club events and he will be greatly missed by his brothers in the VNVLV MC worldwide. He is preceded in death by his father, Thomas Kelley Shuttlesworth, Fultondale AL.
He is survived by his wife, Karen Kemp Shuttlesworth; mother, Anna Eleanor Shuttlesworth; sister, Becky Shuttlesworth Smith; sons, Sean Kelley Shuttlesworth and James Erik Shuttlesworth; step son Richard Craig Lowery; daughters, Kimberly Strickland and Sonia Quintiliani; brother in law and sister in law, Jim and Tammy Kemp; grandchildren, Tyler Shuttlesworth, Abigail Qunitiliani, Airyanne Shuttlesworth, Natalie Shuttlesworth, Ylva Shuttlesworth, Alex Miller and Demi Caraboro; plus many nieces and nephews and great nieces and great nephews.
