Wendell and Norma were proud Jehovah's Witnesses and loved spreading his word. Their life was filled with love of Jehovah, family and friends.

Wendell loved his wife above all else, and enjoyed traveling, tinkering, singing and playing country music, especially the guitar. Wendell drove semi-truck all his working life, enjoying every mile! He was a seasoned fisherman, enjoying the sport with his children and grandchildren for decades. Everyone could hear Wendell before seeing him because of his beautiful whistling, always happy and joyous to be around.
