    More than a golf tournament

    The Wes Gavett Memorial Golf Tournament is not only a friendly game of golf to honor our friend and colleague Wes Gavett, but also a fundraiser for SWANA Beaver Chapter’s Wes Gavett Memorial Fund. Money from this fund is directed towards charitable organizations focused on supporting children and families in need, with input from Wes’ family. The Chapter’s Board has selected The Small Steps Project as the first recipient of a donation. The Small Steps Project is a humanitarian organization and UK-registered charity supporting children and their families living on garbage dumps through the world, with 100% of public donations spent on shoes and emergency aid.

    The Stone Creek Golf Club was Wes’ home course where he played hundreds of rounds of golf, was a long-time member of the Men’s Club, and had one of his two holes-in-one. The tournament will be held as a shotgun event with groups of golfers all teeing off at the same time on different holes. A buffet dinner and awards ceremony will follow.


    About Wes

    Over the course of his 35-year-long professional career as a consulting engineer (1985-2005) and Regional Engineering Manager for Waste Connections (2005-2018), Wes’ work focused on all aspects of the solid waste industry and included active participation in SWANA.

    Since arriving in the Pacific Northwest in 1994 when he joined EMCON’s Portland office, and throughout his professional career since then—including his tenure at Waste Connections since 2005— Wes was instrumental in advancing the Oregon Beaver SWANA Chapter through his leadership as past president, International Board Representative, and Board Member. Wes’ leadership was essential in organizing and coordinating the Beaver Chapter’s Technical Symposium and played a key role as Symposium Director in moving the event to the McMenamins’ Edgefield facility where it continues to be a great success to this day.

    Sadly, Wes passed on October 13th, 2018. He is survived by his loving wife Kerry, two sons, Josh and Eli, and sister and brother, Lynn and Wallace. The untimely passing of a dear friend, colleague, and accomplished solid waste engineer is a great loss to us all.
