We are so sorry to learn of Wendell's passing. He was a big part of our family's Christmas for over 35 years! His big beautiful voice would lead us in the carols -- it's funny, in the past few years when he hasn't been with us, we still sing the same songs the same special way he taught us! He held our babies and listened to our little ones
Christmas wishes as only he could do. Such a sweet man, truly one-of-a-kind.

I went to school with Wendall. He was my friend, although I haven't seen him in years. We had a good time in school with lots of laughs! He was a great guy!

Loved Wendell!! He was such a joy to be around. Always joking, teasing and making people laugh. He was a caring loving man. He always made people smile just by being around him. We will miss him and his laugh, but he is in heaven now having a good time with all his loved ones that have gone before us.

I am so sorry for your (our) loss. Wendell was a wonderful person. Our family used to go camping with Wendell, we always had a blast. Wendell was very quick witted and a bit of a comic. He had a special ability to make almost any adult act silly or child like. I guess his love for life and fun was infectious. He also had the courage to confront someone when they were being vulgar or disrespectful, whether he knew them or not. Wendell was a good man, who I have a great deal of respect for. He will surely be missed.

One of my fondest memories of Wendall is his love and dedication to the childrens ministry at Colonial Hills. His entheusiam was contagious He was always present to help advertise VBS by participating in the 4th of July parade in Mt Morris. The last few years he dressed up as Cat In The Hat and with lots of enthusiasm greeted both parents and children inviting them to come learn about Jesus.
To sum up Wendall's life in a few short words:
"I'd Rather Have Jesus'' because "He is Lord"

I first met Wendell when I was having the cat shows at the Genesee County Fair. After that, I went to a few concerts where he was singing. He sang at several of my Eastern Star Installations and was such a joy to be around. Even when I was caring for older folks at MediLodge, I ran into Wendell there. He had a few medical problems, but that never slowed him down, or his faith. He was a ray of light for so many; a hope that no matter what happens to you, life continues. I am glad he is at peace and singing in a choir like no other. I also know how missed he will be and that he made a difference in this earthly world. Bye my friend.

Oh our precious friend how we will miss you. We had so much fun on our Tuesday practices and our dinners. All the love and laughter. Wendell loved everyone and would always find something good in whoever he met. Our group will never be the same.. your voice is silenced here on earth but in heaven we can just see you dancing and singing on the streets of gold. No more wheelchairs, canes, no more pain. Miss you our friend
