May 26, 1931 — April 15, 2024

Noblesville, IN

Ruben Wesley Voth peacefully passed away at home into God’s presence - loving and eternal care on April 15, 2024. He was 92 years old. Wes (his preferred name) was born to Jacob and Margaret Voth on May 26, 1931 in Garden City, KS. He accepted the Lord as Savior and was baptized at a young age. He faithfully walked with the Lord his entire life.

The youngest of 5 children, he was born into a farming family during the dust bowl in KS and the Depression of the 30’s. At age 4, his family moved to Chico, CA where Wes grew up. The move was accomplished in a Model A Ford holding 7 people and towing a four-wheeled trailer over the Rocky Mountains. Thanks to God’s mercy they made it!

After graduating from high school, Wes spent about 2 years in the Navy, 3 years at Multnomah School of the Bible in Portland, OR and then graduated from UCLA in Westwood, CA. He began his career working for the United State Department of Agriculture.

On July 30, 1960 Wes married Dorothy Ann Nickel (Dottie), having met at church during their college years. They lived in Tustin and Santa Ana, CA, and were blessed with the births of 3 children. In 1963 Wes began work for the FDA and moved to Glendale, CA.

In 1968 he transferred to the FDA office in Philadelphia, PA, moving to Willingboro, NJ. He spent the rest of his career there, retiring in 1996. Wes was an active member of First Baptist Church in Willingboro, NJ where he served in the Christian Service Brigade (program for boys), taught Sunday School and Primary Church, and served many years as a Deacon.

In November 2023, he and Dottie moved to Noblesville, IN to live with their son Mark and his wife Sherry. Wes was preceded in death by his parents and all four of his siblings. He is survived by Dottie his wife of almost 64 years; son John Voth (Noni); daughter Debbie Harner (Dean); son Mark Voth (Sherry); 9 grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren.

His example of Godly character, kindness, compassion for others and sense of humor will be greatly missed.
