Wendell was always a very kind, caring and all around good guy. We will always miss him but he will always be remembered as “Pops” through our mutual grandson Christian. So many fun memories of him through Christian. In their short time together he made a forever impression on his grandson and he will never be forgotten. We are blessed to have called him our friend and family. Johnny and Patsy
