Wendell held many positions in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He will be remembered for his overwhelming consideration of others and his love of service.Wendell will be missed more than words could ever describe; but, the rich legacy of love he fostered will live forever in his family and friends. Wendell loved just about everything and everyone: being a Grandpa - at soccer games, as a toy maker, or as a river runner, and when it came time to collect kisses; a GOOD round of golf; horses; Christmas time and Christmas trees; telling people about his "hole-in-one;" working with wood; Cokes and Mars bars; organizing a party; being a salesman; looking for pheasants; coaching a little league team; telling a joke; eating at the "kids" houses; laughing with friends; anything Irish; Audrey's flowers; and, helping someone in need.
Wendell, we love you higher than the mountains, higher than the birds fly, higher than the sky - even more than that!
