Town of Windsor Statement on the Passing of Former Mayor Wesley F. Garris
August 14, 2023
We are saddened to hear of the passing of Wesley F. Garris. Wesley was dedicated to the Town of Windsor and unselfishly served the town for decades as Mayor and a member of Town Council.
Wesley served on Town Council from 1967 until 1984, from 1988 until 1996, and again from 2004 until 2013. He was elected Mayor in 1996, serving in that role until 2002.
During his forty years as an elected official in Windsor, Wesley helped to navigate the Town through several large changes, such as the renovation of the fire house into the municipal center and the annexation which doubled the size of the Town in 2001.
The town has lost an incredible public servant and friend and our thoughts and prayers go out to his family.
