GALVESTON — On Wednesday, October 6, 2021, Wesley Achan Durant journeyed to his final resting place at the age of 33, in Galveston, Texas. Wesley’s wishes were to be cremated and his ashes to remain with his family. Even after death he didn’t want to leave his family.
Wesley’s loss is devastating to his loved ones. He was preceded in death by his loving parents, father, George Durant of Harleyville, South Caroline and mother, Lynette Morgan Durant of Galveston, Texas. He leaves cherished memories with his devoted love, Deykia Josey, son, Breland, daughters, Bre’Niyah, Bre’Ajah, and Bri’Elle, sister, Brittney Durant, nephew Brycen, niece, Brooklyn and a host of nieces, nephews, great nieces and nephews, aunts, uncles and cousins as well as friends who loved him. Our hearts are forever broken that Wesley’s internal darkness consumed his beautiful light. It is the families prayers that no one else we love suffer in silence.
Wesley attended Ball High School. He was recognized at Galveston College for his achievements in welding. Though Wesley worked different jobs, he was drawn to the food industry, where he enjoyed cooking. Wesley loved his family. He was an amazing father and an amazing father figure to his nephew Brycen whom he loved beyond words.
