Wesley "Hoss" Rolfe

Wesley "Hoss" Rolfe, 46, of Fountain City, left on a trip on Wednesday, February 20, at Reid Hospital.


Born March 21, 1961 in Dodge City, Kansas, he was the son of Gerald and Roth Malin Rolfe. He was raised on a ranch in Kansas, where he was active in FFA, horseback riding and was a team roper with his dad. He had lived in the Fountain City community for the past 13 years. He drove the highways of North America as a truck driver, most recently with Regal Beloit. In 2004 concerns about his personal health led him to form Truckers For A Cause, an organization designed to address health and wellness issues for truckers. Through a weight loss challenge, the organization had raised $2000 to be shared by two of his favorite charities, Trucker Buddy and Special Olympics, with plans for even bigger and better things in the future. In his free time, Wes enjoyed playing golf, woodworking and following NASCAR. He was also finding enjoyment with model trains and spending time with his grandson, Lane.


Wes will be missed by his wife, Judy, to whom he was married January 28, 1997; a step-son and daughter-in-law, Jamie and Tonnie Clouse, of Fountain City; his grandson, Lane Clouse; his mother, Ruth Clouse, of Plainville, Kansas; sister, Jeannette Rolfe, of Plainville, Kansas; brother, Pat Ross, of Rhode Island.


Wes was preceded in death by his father, Gerald Rolfe.


A celebration of Wes' life will begin at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, February 23, at the Smith & McQuiston Funeral Home, 321 US 27 South, Fountain City, with visitation beginning at 1:00 p.m.
