Nick and I were shocked and saddened to hear of Wynne’s passing. I have many fond memories of playing with Wynne and all of his siblings every year at our dad’s bowling picnic either at their house or at ours (our dads bowled together for many years). May God comfort you and sustain you through this extremely sad time.
Love and prayers,

Mass at Christ The King was always a little bit brighter when Wynne was there to help with the music. He devoted so much of his time to the music ministry. He will be missed. I am so sorry for all of the Buehlerfamilyy at this time. God Bless Each One Of You!!!!

To Terri and the entire Buehler family, our sincere condolences. I'm saddened to learn of Wynne's passing. I know Kent better than I knew Wynne, but I met and visited with him and listened to him play and sing some beautiful music at Christ the King Church and in performances with the Green Valley Homesteaders. Always appreciated his many talents. His passing is a shock. He leaves the world a better place for having been here. God Bless.

May the Angels come to greet him and speed him to paradise.
