Obituary of Wesley Albert Rasmussen

Wesley Albert Rasmussen, 84, of Hudson, WI, formerly of Las Vegas, NV and Bloomington, MN, passed away peacefully on November 2, 2018. Wesley was born October 5, 1934 in Milwaukee, WI to the late Myrtle and Albert Rasmussen. He was a loving husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather. Wesley was a highly successful businessman who taught his family that by working hard, you are in fact taking care of your family and providing them a better world. He loved to read, travel, fish, watch football - especially the Vikings, and collect coins. Spending time with friends and family, especially going out to eat with them, was one of his favorite things to do. He also enjoyed remembering his time in the Navy and sharing his global stories with all. His wife of 60 years, Judith Rasmussen and siblings Carol Setterberg and Joyce Bendickson preceded him in death. He is survived by his brother Charles (Judy) Rasmussen and children Steve (Michelle) Rasmussen, Debbie (Jay) Pearsall, Tom (Cheryl) Rasmussen and Kathy Jo (Rob) Beery; grandchildren Erik (Marina) Pearsall. Lynndon (Claire) Hecker, Michael (Kristen) Pearsall, Caleigh Rasmussen, Dan Rasmussen, Leigha Rasmussen, Molleigh Rasmussen, Mitchell Rasmussen, Grant Beery, Taylor Beery; and great grandchildren Kylie, Brayden, Evie, Sophia, Lexie, Eleanor, Raeleigh, Jackson, Kiara, Rosalie, and Lucas. Interment will be held at 11:00 AM at Fort Snelling National Cemetery, Minneapolis MN on Wednesday, November 21, 2018. A celebration of life luncheon will follow. In lieu of flowers, please consider contributions in Wesley's memory to be made to Nathan Adelson Hospice, 3150 North Tenaya Way, Suite 350, Las Vegas, NV 89128 to help them continue with their important work
