TRIBUTES PAID: Window cleaner from Watford dies after being electrocuted

A Watford window cleaner has sadly died after he is believed to have been electrocuted while working at a property in Garston.

On August 16, Wesley Vicary, 39, suffered an electric shock after he was holding his high reach washer pole at the house when it is understood to have collided with a power line.

The father of three, who ran his own business W.V Windows & Exterior Cleaning, was found by the homeowner of the property and emergency services were called, he was sadly pronounced dead at the scene.

His partner of 14 years, Deanne Astley, described Mr Vicary as an amazing, kind, generous, hard-working and funny person.

Speaking to GarstonNews, Miss Astley sent a message to other window cleaners warning them to be careful when out at a job.

She said: “People need to be careful when working outside. They need to be aware of their surroundings at all times. 

“Sometimes when a window cleaner is out, a neighbour could come out and say ‘can you do mine’ they will need to assess the house rather than just say ‘yes okay’ they need to treat every single house as a first assessment.

“Be aware of the dangers, we can’t afford to lose any more dads that are going out to provide for their children. It’s not fair.”

She also paid tribute to him in a Facebook post, saying: “Wesley you worked so hard for us and I saw all your growth, all the changes you had made, all the efforts you have been putting in and it was such a beautiful thing watching you grow and learn to love yourself. 

“We never gave up on our love and what we had, even when others may have. I know we drove others crazy especially this last year because we just couldn’t keep apart even though we were hurting.

“Nothing could keep us apart, you are my magnet. I will love you until i take my last breath and I will cherish and protect our three children until I can finally be with you again in our next life. You are my very bestest friend. 

“You knew me inside out and I know you inside out. I used to know what you say before you say it. You were so predictable but yet you always kept me on my toes and that’s what kept me coming back for more.”

A fundraising page has been set up to help pay for funeral costs and provide support the Wesley’s three children. 

The original target of £3,000 has been smashed and Deanne would like to thank everyone who supported and continues to support.

She added: “The fundraiser is going amazing. I originally set it up with a target of £3,000 and it has gone over it.

“I just thank you all and appreciate you so much for your love and support. If I could reply back to every single person I would but I literally can’t, I have been inundated with messages which is a testament to who Wesley is.”

    Just read this – it’s tragic that a young man lost his life in an accident that could have been avoided. My heart goes out to his family – but mostly to his children ???
