KENNEBUNK - C. Wesley Crowell, 59, a resident of Kennebunk and active member of the Kennebunk community, died on Wednesday, Jan. 7, 2015, at Mercy Hospital in Portland, following a sudden illness.
Wes, as he was known to all who knew him, was born on July 9, 1955, in Worcester, Mass., the son of Sumner F. and Charlsey Adcock Crowell. He grew up in Grafton, Mass., attending Grafton Schools. He is a graduate of University of Virginia and Suffolk University Law School.
Practicing law since 1980, he is a partner with Bergen and Parkinson in Kennebunk, where he specialized in real estate and business law. Many of his clients thought of him more as a friend than their attorney.
Active within the Kennebunk community, Wes has served as selectman for the town of Kennebunk, was a member and served on the Board of Trustees at the South Congregational Church in Kennebunkport, served as a trustee and has been a strong supporter of the Kennebunk Land Trust, a member of Arundel Yacht Club, serving on its board of governors, and a member of numerous outdoor alliances.
An active outdoorsman, he loved to hunt and fish and watch wildlife of any form. He bred and raised Gordon Setters for the last 25 years, was an avid golfer and participated in the Biddeford men's hockey program.
Wes is survived by his loving wife, Susan Crowell of Kennebunk; his children, Mark Crowell of Arundel, and Jenna (Crowell) Petersen and her husband Brad of Burlington, Mass.; his brother Fiske Crowell and his wife Andrea of Wayland, Mass.; six nephews and two nieces.
A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 10, 2015, at the South Congregational Church, Temple St., Kennebunkport, with Rev. Charles Whiston officiating.
