Wesley Alexander Brzozowski, son of Walter August Brzozowski and Anna (Majewski) Brzozowski, was born on March 27, 1927, in Bridgeport, Connecticut. He graduated from Central High School in Bridgeport in 1945. He also studied at Bridgeport Engineering School and Warren Institute in Bridgeport.

In July 1951, Wesley married Rita S. Holm at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Bridgeport. They first lived and worked in Bridgeport where he was an inspector and later a sales representative for Avco Lycoming. In 1960, they moved from Bridgeport to nearby Huntington, Connecticut, until moving to the Lansdale, Pennsylvania area. Next, they lived and worked briefly in the Bay City, Michigan area, before moving to Creston in 1971. In 1974, Wesley became a quality engineer until his retirement in May 1990.

Wesley was a member of the Holy Spirit Catholic Church, actively attended Crest Baptist Church and was also a former member of the Elks Lodge.
