Wesley Michael Schreiner, age 60, of Fargo, North Dakota, passed away on Sunday, April 8,
2018 in his home, surrounded by his family and loved ones. His treatment and care were
provided by Roger Maris Cancer Center and Hospice of the Red River Valley.

Wes was born in Shreveport, LA at Barksdale Air Force Base on October 16, 1957 to Elmer
and Nettie Schreiner. Wes attended schools while his father was stationed at March Air
Force Base in CA, Ramey Air Force Base in Puerto Rico, and Minot Air Force Base in ND.
Wes was baptized in the Catholic church, received his First Communion, and was confirmed.
He graduated from Fargo North High School (1975) and attended Moorhead State University
and North Dakota State University. Although Wes never married, he spent many years with
his life partner, Susan Thiers.

Wes held jobs at a Phillips 66 service station, Musicland, and Hertz before becoming
self-employed in computer network design and support. He also donated his time and
technical skills when people needed his help. Wes ran sound for local bands and was an
ardent supporter of the local music scene. Wes held intense interests in music, science,
weather, national as well as global politics, and astronomy. He was able to fix nearly
anything electronic or automotive.

Wes is survived by his life partner, Susan Thiers of Fargo, ND; his mother, Nettie Schreiner
of Fargo, ND; sister Nancy (David) Monson of Fargo, ND; sister Julie Watkins of Wichita, KS;
niece Leanna (Ty) Jones of West Fargo, ND; nieces Jenna and Kira Watkins of Wichita, KS;
and many aunts, uncles, cousins and dear friends. Wes was preceded in death by his father,
Elmer Schreiner.

    Wes kept our computers, net works and cloud services up and running. We depended on Wes for more than 10 years.
    Wes worked quietly and methodically. He was efficient and thorough, a rare combination made possible by quick intelligence.

    My nephew Wes was a whiz at everything, especially computers, and he also had, far and away the longest hair of anyone in the Schreiner Family. May the Lord our God grant eternal rest unto Wesley. My sincere condolences to Nettie, Nancy, and Julie.

  6. Julie Schreiner Bottchen says:

    My cousin Wes was the best! He was always willing to help me and my family with all of our computer needs and took my phone calls to ask him questions about the new computer he got for me. There was nothing he couldn’t do. He was a highly intelligent man and i am so proud to have been his cousin. I will miss him so so much.

    To Nettie, Nancy, Julie, Susan and children our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time. Wes at about 4 was a very smart child as he continued to be with his wisdom in many areas.
    Wes’s computer skills were untouchable. Enjoyed his stops at the lake. Wes is now in a better place and pain free. Treasure the memories of him.

  9. Ronald Beaton says:

    Wes worked for me at Musicland, he was part of the early “rat pack” group, that loved music, the customers and just coming to work every day… Wes always had a great work ethic and was just a fun guy to be around… he will be missed by his friends and Family.

    My family and I are so sorry to read of the sad, untimely death of Wesley and send our deepest sympathy. We too have lost dear loved ones to the dreaded disease of cancer and know the pain and suffering it brings. May your memories of happy times through the years and the future resurrection hope we share of seeing our loved ones again as Jesus promised at JOHN 11:25 give you strength and comfort in the times ahead.
    With prayers,
    The Dawes family

    Dear Nettie, Susan, and Family, I first met Wes in about 1991 when I turned to the NDSU Grad program for Computer Science in search of help developing some programs, they brought Wes into my life. He helped Dixon Insurance and ITL with all our computer design, network and monitoring needs until last year when he became too ill to do so. Wes had a brilliant mind, was well-read and truly cared for his relationships with those he served and was friends with, I considered Wes both a friend and a business partner. Nettie, thank you for raising such a fine man, and Susan, thank you for making Wes so happy always. Nancy and Julie, I have never met either of you but Wes talked about you both often and always with kindness and love. We were all blessed to have Wes in our lives and I will miss him, his wit and wisdom, very much. With Love, Melissa Dixon

    Wes was part of our crew that hung out together all through High School, college, and for a while after. Although we all drifted apart after a few years I often thought about those days. He was Best Man at my wedding. He’ll be missed!
