Wesley "Wes" was the father of Sylver McQueen (who was named Peter when he lived with Wes). Breda McQueen worked as a nanny for Wes, and witnessed him treat Peter poorly. Wes was an abusive father who emotionally and physically abused Peter over the smallest things. On Christmas Day 1986, Breda tried to convince Wes to not be so harsh on Peter, but Wes went upstairs to give Peter a beating. Breda picked an angel ornament off the table and hit Wes over the head with it, killing him. Breda ended up adopting Wes's son, and changing his name to Sylver. Breda only revealed that she wasn't Sylver's biological mother in December 2018.
