Obituary of Weston I. Somerville

Please share a memory of Weston to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
Born 08-28-1940
Died 03-12-2023

Born in Fayette, NY to Marshall Lewis and Loretta (Sell) Somerville, he graduated from Waterloo High school (1958) and Houghton College (1962) with graduate degrees from Cornell University, Syracuse University and Brockport University.
He and Korleen moved to Sodus, NY in 1965. He taught science, coached and was ultimately High School Principal at Sodus Central before retiring in 1994. Weston (Wes) had an ongoing passion for knowledge and learning. He was a hobbiest pilot and was very involved with the Williamson Flying Club for many years. He taught himself to weave Nantucket baskets which are now treasured objects in the homes of several family members. 

Survived by his wife of 60 years, Korleen (Roche) Somerville, children Loretta (Dan) Ingersoll and Weston (Erika) Somerville, six grandsons, one granddaughter, five great-grandchildren (and another arriving soon), brothers William (Bonnie), John (Jane), Gary (Linda) and several nieces and nephews. 

In keeping with Wes’s wishes, there will be no public calling hours.  A celebration of his life will be at a later date.
