Those who knew Wendell knew he had a love for the outdoors. Wendell enjoyed riding horses, fishing, and gardening, but none compared to the thrill that hunting brought in Wendell’s life. Getting out in the fields to run the dogs to find those rabbits is something that Wendell loved each time he went out.
Wendell had a keen and deep appreciation for America. Having served in the United States Army, Wendell fought in the Vietnam War, where he was injured and received the Purple Heart. Wendell is a lifetime member of the Disabled American Veterans. We salute Wendell for his love and sacrifice he made for this country.
Wendell will always be remembered as a family man. Nothing would please him more than to spend time with his family. Wendell was a polite, gentle soul that could get along with anyone that he met. Wendell will be remembered as a loving husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather.
