Wesley Charles Fausch

Wesley Charles Fausch lost his courageous battle with Parkinson’s on November 24, 2021.  Wes was born on August 18, 1946 to Charles and Lucille (Edwards) Fausch in Morristown, MN.  He graduated in 1964 from Southern School of Agriculture in Waseca.  He went on to graduate from the University of Minnesota in Vocational Agriculture and received a Masters of Education.  He taught in West Concord, MN and the University of Minnesota-Waseca.  In 1978 he joined Pioneer Hi-Bred in Johnston, Iowa, where he spent 30 years until his retirement in 2008.  He enjoyed working with farmers and growers in his various positions.

 Wes met his wife, Christine Windedahl in 1964 and they married July 12, 1969 in Round Lake, MN.  They had two sons, Adam (Rachel) and Joshua (Lindsey).  After living in Iowa for 41 years, they returned to Minnesota in 2019, residing in New Market.  Along with enjoying spending time with his family and traveling, he was an avid woodworker, snowmobiler, motorcycle enthusiast, and boater at his lake cabin in Iowa.  And he loved his cars!

 Wes is survived by his wife and best friend of over 52 years, Christine; sons, Adam (Rachel) and Joshua (Lindsey); six grandchildren, Eleanor, Charles, Wyatt, Jackson, Zachary, and Lilliana; sister, Karen (Lee) Swanson; sister-in-law, Alene (Mike) Brewer; nieces, nephews, and several cousins.  He is preceded in death by his parents.
