Herbert Wesley Carew, born April 13, 1942, in Katy, Texas, was called home by our Lord in Heaven on Thursday, September 2, 2021.

Wes grew up in Baytown, Texas where his love for electronics began as a teenager. He graduated from Robert E. Lee High School in 1960 and joined the U.S. Navy shortly after graduation. He served on the USS Chivo, then the USS John C. Calhoun SBN 630 based in Charleston, SC. While in the Navy, he attended many training schools to learn Information Technology. He left the Navy in 1968 after the birth of his first child, traveling along the upper East Coast before settling in Fairchilds, Texas. Wes lived in Fairchilds for many years and was a member of the First Baptist Church of Richmond.

As an Eagle Scout, he influenced the lives of many young hearts serving as a Boy Scout leader. Throughout his professional career, Wes held various positions within the oil industry, employed by firms such as Honeywell, Baroid, Halliburton, Digicon, Syscom Delta, Western Geophysical, ABB, and his own company, Systems Integrated Systems. In 2007, he proudly obtained his Bachelor of Science in Computer Science degree from the University of Houston-Victoria, graduating Summa Cum Laude. He occupied his time providing ongoing consulting work, becoming a Master Gardener, raising bees, and locating family through Ancestry.com and building upon the vast family tree.

Wes had a strong faith and trust in God and was a blessing to many as a result of his unconditional love. He enjoyed sharing and teaching his immense knowledge in so many different subjects and desired to help whomever he could. As a result of his laid-back attitude, great sense of humor, drive to help others, and abundant love, he was cherished beyond measure and will be greatly missed by so many.

He is preceded in death by his grandparents Henry and Vera Hood, Charles and Gertrude Carew, parents Herbert and Wilma Jane Carew, and daughter of 22 years, Angela Carew.

He is survived by his wife Marja Carew; children Denise Carew and boyfriend Jeff, John Carew, Zachary Carew, Adam Douglas and wife Lori, Aaron Douglas and girlfriend Daisy, Heather Norbury and husband Will; siblings Neil Kent Carew and wife Judy, Richard Carew, Sarah Ryan and husband Bob; grandchildren Haley Carew, Isabella Apodoca, Avery Douglas, Garrett Douglas; several nieces, nephews and their children, and many more family members.

Memorial services will be held on Wednesday, September 15, 2021, at Klein Funeral Home-Champions. The viewing is at 9:00 AM, service immediately to follow at 10:00 AM, and military burial at 1:30 PM at the Houston National Cemetery. Memories and condolences can be shared on the funeral home’s website at www.kleinfh.com/obituary/herbert-carew

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to MD Anderson in the name of Angela Renee Carew.
