In addition to leaving behind the many friends and support staff he loved at West Bay, he is survived by his brother, Richard Wilkes of Township of Washington, New Jersey, who he adored and with whom he shared a mutual love. He loved his weekly FaceTime calls and monthly visits where his brother would bring him delicious deli from New Jersey.
