Wesley Adam “Wes” Burrell, 23, of Hendersonville, passed away unexpectedly at home on Saturday, May 23, 2020. Born Wednesday, August 21, 1996, he was the only child of Andy Burrell and Lisa DeVane Burrell.

Wes was a true “gear head,” who loved working on any vehicle: cars, trucks, anything with wheels. He loved animals, especially his two German shepherds, Hazle and Tee, and was an avid Alabama Football fan– Roll Tide! He was of the Baptist faith.

In addition to his parents, left to cherish his memory are his uncles and aunts, Greg DeVane (Terri), Chris DeVane (Robin) and Michael DeVane (Kim).

He was preceded in death by his paternal grandparents, Jesse and Barbara Burrell; and maternal grandparents, Ralph and Mary DeVane.
