On Monday, July 20, 2020, Wesley Harvey Hill, loving husband and father of four children, passed away at the age of 79. Wes was born on July 30, 1940 in Taylor, TX. He received his bachelor’s degree from the University of Houston in Houston in 1968, and he was the broker/owner of Wes Hill Real Estate for 35 years. Wes Hill was named best Realtor in 2005 and received the 2008 Distinguished Service Award from the Chaffee County Board of Realtors. This award has only been given 2 times in the history of the Board. Wes was recognized for his long term commitment and service to the real estate profession. He married Nancy on May 30, 1975 and the family moved to Colleyville, TX.

Wes had a passion for horses. He also loved golf and country and western dancing. He and Nancy were spotted often out cutting a rug at one of the many local events or dances. He was known for his straight forward and honest approach which was sometimes abrupt and all always right to the point. You always knew exactly where you stood with Wes and everyone appreciated that. Those that knew him well were able to see the big old teddy bear and loving spirit which remained with him until his final days.

Wes was preceded in death by his father, William Henry Hill, and his mother, Edith Ethelyne (Wood) Hill as well as his siblings, Bonnie Hill, Ray Hill, Jean Powers and Shirleen Friery. He is survived by his wife Nancy, his four children; Vicki Hill, Kathy Wagoner, Gary Shuford, and Danny Shuford, his grandchildren Marisa Shaw, Amber Sowell, Aaron Pope and Grey Wagoner as well as his great grandchildren, Audrey Sowell, Addison Sowell, Liam Sowell, Brodan Wagoner, Emory Wagoner and Rory Wagoner as well as numerous nieces, nephews and extended family.

A celebration of life will be held in the fall of 2020 at a place yet to be determined. To express condolences, please visit

It was always a great honor to be in the presence of Wes. From the very moment we shook hands till the end, he demonstrated kindness, pride, integrity, and devotion to his wife, Nancy. A man of his word. Wes displayed this every time we worked together. Which was every day, snow or shine.. he came in to work regardless how he was feeling. I miss the stories he told and the laughter we shared. I didn’t know Wes long, but it was enough time for me to shout to the world that he was a good man. A father figure. Wes will forever be in my heart and I pray he is in peace with God, looking over Nancy.

I think every woman in Salida had a crush on this handsome man. He and Nancy were truly a perfect match. They weathered so many things, including the ups and downs of the real estate market in a (then) small town, but kept fighting the good fight with unity, integrity and community leadership. Hope he holds an affordable, vacant lot for me up there! Thoughts and prayers to lovely Nancy.

Wes was the first person we met when we contemplated moving to Salida. He was so generous with both his time and his knowledge as he helped us learn the area and eventually find the right property for us. We kept in touch for a decade, and we will miss him for much longer than that.

Dear Nancy and Family,
We were saddened to read of Wes' passing away. He was so full of "vim, vigor and vitality" that it's hard to think of his being gone at this point in his life. Sending you hugs and prayers,
Wayne and Paula

We have such a great memory of Wes. In September 1999, we were on vacation and decided to look at some properties in Salida. Wes showed us a double A frame just outside of Salida. We made an offer, it was accepted and we moved to Salida in February 2020. We would see Wes at various events and tell him of our changes. He will be missed. Our sympathy to Nancy and family.
