Melvin Frank Wentrcek, age 79, of Taylor, TX passed away Wednesday February 13, 2019 in Georgetown, TX. Agriculture was Melvin’s life-long passion. He loved farming, John Deere tractors and raising show hogs. He was especially partial to raising wheat and corn on his farm in Granger. He married later in life and enjoyed travelling the world with his friends and beloved wife he called “Annie.” His favorite trip was an African safari where he enjoyed meeting and talking with the children and local farmers there. He was a devoted volunteer each year for the live nativity and vacation bible school. Melvin will fondly be remembered for his love of his grandchildren, bacon, sausage, and Whittington’s beef jerky. He is survived by his wife, Anne Wentrcek; his step-children, Adam and Monica Mehevec and Randy and Stacy Skrhak; his step-grandchildren, Dylan, Luke, Gracie, and Bailey; and his nephew, Larry David and wife Vivian.
