Rev. Wesley “Wes” Eugene McCament
June 22, 1946 ‒ February 05, 2020
Mount Vernon, Ohio
Rev. Wesley “Wes” Eugene McCament was born June 22, 1946 in Mount Vernon, Ohio to Carroll and Dorothy (St John) McCament. On February 5, 2020 he met his Lord with faith-filled courage following his weeks long endurance of terminal pancreatic cancer.
A proud Army veteran (1st Air Cavalry), Wes served from 1966-1967 in An Khe, Vietnam where he returned to visit in 2016 with his son, James McCament. In December 1968 Wes married Janice (Comrie) McCament after a three month courtship. The fifty-one year journey with his sweetheart was filled with humor, blessings, challenges, courage and grace.
A graduate of the 1968-70 pioneer class of then Mount Vernon Nazarene College, Wes completed his education at Olivet Nazarene University in Kankakee, Illinois. His service as a minister and evangelist in the Church of the Nazarene included pastorates in Illinois and Ohio. He leaves a legacy of a beloved life well and courageously lived. He did so with love, wit, teasing humor, and wisdom while serving God, his family, many friends, congregations and his country.
Wes is survived by Janice, his beloved wife of 51 years, sons James and Keven, his brother Dean (Sheryl) McCament, and sister Patricia (John) Nye as well as his brother in law Winston Comrie and sisters in law Mildred (Ed) Allen, Christina (Frank) Baker, Denise (Rick) Braley. He is also survived by his beloved nephews and nieces Craig Dean, Mollie (Sergio) Rojas, Erin (Henry) Garcia, James (Michelle) Brady, Kristi Brady, Stephanie Brady and Drew (Nazmia) Comrie.
Wes was preceded in death by his parents.
