Wendell was a kind soul that was larger than life. He was a collector of clocks, cars and piggy banks.

He liked country and western music and traveling the East Coast. He even got to see Little Jimmy Dickens at the Grand Ole Opry on one of his travels. Wendell lived in South Wheelock on the family homestead for many years and he treasured the family reunions there as well as his birthdays where he loved being the center of attention. Wendell also enjoyed camping and boating and spending time with family and friends.
