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.

    With love,

  • Wes, my brother in law always had a heart for others. His soft spoken kindness and sense of humor was evident wherever he went. We shall truly miss you but know you are home, safe and whole. Soon those who know Him shall see you again.
    I’m so glad to have called you my brother in law. Your family will miss you, but meanwhile we shall look out for each other.
    Love you,
    Christina Brady-Baker

  • Dennis and I are praying for you, Janice, and for your family, during this temporary but difficult time of separation. We know the Lord is with you, but we also know your loss is great. So glad we got to be with you for a bit at homecoming a few years ago. Time goes by so quickly… I wish we could be there for your celebration of his wonderful life, but we will be there in spirit.

    Dennis and. Linda Scott

  • Janice, James and Keven. “Steady” is the word that comes to mind when I think of the McCament family. It will not seem right to not see all four of you together. Tim and I will be praying for all of you as you adjust to this new normal. Thank you for granting us the privilege of loving your beautiful family. So thankful that we walk in hope.

  • I only had the pleasure of knowing Wes for a short time, when he began coming out to Hardees, and we convinced him to join the “group” in the corner to discuss anything and everything! We noticed him driving his Corvette, and he immediately got the nick name Mr Corvette, plus Lead foot! I ended up in the hospital the last two weeks of October and Wes took the time to come visit me and pray for my recovery twice and I really appreciated him for the caring and love he displayed. All my sympathy goes out to family and friends of Wesley, he was a wonderful and compassionate man which surely will be missed by all who knew him!

  • Although I never met Wes, I am a good friend of his brother (Dean) and through him knew of Wes and his family. In November 2018 I lost my wife of 48 years to cancer. She too went through many months of pain and suffering. She was a fine christian woman, wife, mother, and grandmother; extremely active in our church – loved it, and loved the Lord. While I grieve with Wes’s family and friends at his passing, I also rejoice in his victory over the grave and his new beginning, once again whole and in the presence of the Lord. Hallelujah! I pray his family will find peace and comfort as we celebrate his life of devoted service to the ministry and his love of family and friends, one and all.

  • McCamet Family.. I’m so sorry.. Wes was such an encouragement to my Dad.. He will be missed greatly.. We are praying for peace and comfort in the days ahead.. Beautiful memories will be held by many.. Love and Prayers.. Jeff & Cris VanScyoc
    and Sam Stimpert..

  • McCamet Family,
    We are praying for you all. You are in our thoughts and prayers. I’m praying that the grace & peace of our Lord will surround you now.

  • Dear Wes,
    Thank you for making our sister happy for 51 years. Your deep love for each other was a model of a Christian marriage for all of us.
    Your adventures through life led you to having a love for our Savior and being an enthusiastic Christian; Vietnam; being a husband; being a wonderful Dad; effectively preaching and singing the Gospel; you had a great sense of humor; a love for the lost; and a love of family and church.
    We are glad God loaned you to us for awhile. We love you and will miss you, but we will see you one day soon.
    Much love,
    Your sister-in-law,

  • Mrs. McCament, James and Keven,

  • Sometimes people come into our lives to bring a sense of integrity, wholesomeness, smiles and laughter. They help us believe in the goodness of humanity. When they pass, their gifts of Spirit remain to help us through our walk in life. Wesley McCament was that kind of person. We will miss his exuberance, his steadfastness in Christ, his friendship. You did good, Wes, you did good!

    Your friends,
    Norm and Freda

  • Janice, James , Keven and the whole family, I was so blessed to be able to spend time with Wes in his final days. His continual courage, hope and faith could be seen and felt just by being in the same room with him. I will never forget his humor. We laughed a lot in his final days. I will never forget that grin that he would get on his face when he said something funny to me. As you know, he gave me a special gift that I will be forever grateful for. Thank you for allowing me to be there during his final days and the end. I love you all, and you are and will continue to be in my prayers.

    Melody Vasquez

  • I have kept you in my prayers and will continue. Although far away Melody kept me informed. She was always telling me something funny he said almost up to the very end. I was so happy to hear of Kevin’s special at the funeral. I wish I could have been there. You have been a wonderful blessing in Mel’s life.

  • Dear Janice and Family: I was so sorry to hear of Wes’s passing. May he rest in peace and may all of you find peace during this difficult time.
    In Deepest Sympathy,
    Mary Rugola-Dye
