Born February 22, 1923, on the family farm in Groveside, NY, he was the son of Elmer and Sadie (LeBarron) Brownell. In 1944 he married Helen Kyer and they enjoyed 71 years of marriage. He is predeceased by his wife, Helen Brownell; a grandson Wayne Magisano; and a daughter Gayle Magisano as well as five siblings; Paul Clark Brownell, Pauline Swart, Gordon Brownell, Irene Greene and Jessie Stuart. Survivors include his children Carl Brownell (Lorraine), Stan Brownell (Robin), and son-in-law, Joseph Magisano.

Wesley worked in many different positions, Clifford Cottrell's saw mill, Clyde Baker farm, Stuart Brownell Hatchery, Delurey's International Dealership, plus he & Sam Scaglione ran a garage in Eagle Bridge, NY. Then in 1958 Wesley began as the bus mechanic for the Hoosick Falls School District where he worked for thirty years. He was a charter member of the West Hoosick Fire Department.

Wesley was a man of great humor and loved to make people laugh. He and his wife enjoyed many years of family get-togethers, outings, going to county fairs and dining at area restaurants. A man that will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
