WARREN —  Wesley L. “Bub” Morse, 69, passed away peacefully at his home Oct. 10, 2021.

Wesley was educated at Thomaston Grammar School.

In his younger years, he spent most of his time helping run the family farm and the transfer station in St. George.

Bub was very proud to have been a member of the St. George fire Department. He worked various odd jobs over the years. In most recent years, he drove for Bunkers Transport.

In Wesley’s spare time he enjoyed being outdoors, fishing, mowing the lawn, snowmobiling, target practicing, working on vehicles, and he loved riding his prized possession, a 1981 Honda motorcycle.

In his younger years, you would find him tinkering with a vehicle or jumping the gravel pits at his home in St. George.  More recently, his favorite pastime was playing pool with his grandson, Wyatt.  He always had a soft spot in his heart for animals.

To everyone who knew him, he was a comedian and would be the first to jump in and help anyone. Truly a kindhearted character all his own.

 Wesley was preceded in death by his father, Virgil Morse, his mother, Dorothy Barter Morse, brothers, Clifford Morse, Gary Morse and Albert Johnson as well as sisters, Susan Libby and Evelyn Hart.

He is survived by his older brother, Virgil Morse, of St. George; and his twin brother, Bill Morse, of Rockland; his wife of 46 years, Korena Morse, of Warren; and his two daughters, Candi Johnson and her husband, Chad, of Thomaston, Carrie and Blain Searle of Waldoboro; and six grandchildren, Della, Sarah and Mary Johnson and Wyatt, Sebastian and Piper Searle; a good friend named Jamie Steves and a very special puppy named Jack.

Family and friends are invited to join the family in a celebration of Wesley’s life at the Thomaston Legion Hall located, 10 Watts Lane, Nov. 6, from 1 to 3 p.m.

 The family asks that in lieu of flowers, donations be made  in Wesley’s name to the Pope Memorial Humane Society  25 Buttermilk Lane, Thomaston, ME 04861.
