Lenert Earl Wehmeyer September 6, 1937 - November 27, 2018
Lenert Earl Wehmeyer, also known as Shorty to his family and friends or just Earl to those in the heating and air business, passed away November 27, 2018 at his home in Houston, Texas at 81 years of age, choosing to help his brother Clarence celebrate his first birthday in heaven.
Shorty was born on September 6, 1937 in Brenham Texas to Willie F. and Lilian Wehmeyer. He was baptized and confirmed at Salem Lutheran Church. He attended Brenham schools and graduated from Spring Branch High School in Houston. After graduation he went to work for Air Temperature on May 12, 1956 where he remained until he retired on November 4, 2016 after sixty years. If you were family or a friend, there is a good chance he looked at your a/c or heat during that sixty years. He married his wife Becky on June 18, 1960. He loved piddling around the house, grilling in the backyard, his day trips to Brenham where he would meet with his brother Kinch and cousin Adolph, his “second home” at the deer lease in Menard, his children, grandchildren and his wife of 58 years, Becky.
Shorty was predeceased by, his parents Willie F. and Lillian Wehmeyer; brothers Willie Wehmeyer Jr. and Clarence Wehmeyer; sisters Ora Nell Parker and Mary Jo Lorenz.

Becky and Shorty were our friends for almost sixty years. We shared so many good times and they were a joy to be with.
I remember their wedding when Shorty started to faint and Becky grabbed his arm and held him up for the remainder of the ceremony. I remember how proud he was when Mitch and Kelly were born.
Shorty put the air conditioners in three of our houses throughout the years and helped my husband with many other jobs around our house over the years.
I am thankful to have such great friends throughout my life.
