My deepest condolences to the family. Prayers for you all during this time of loss. I worked as a fellow Territory Manager with Wendell. He was a road warrior that cared very much for the people and stores that he visited. There are many stories to tell, but all lead to the dedication he had to sharing the Good News of what Jesus had done in his life. He was a treasure to all.

Dear Lois, Gary and Family, I am so sorry to hear of Wendell's passing but know he is with the Lord. My memories go all the way back to our years together in Bible college. Wendell and I were roommates one year. We also worked together for many years at Gospel Light Publishers/Regal Books and Tyndale House Publishers. Wendell was always a hard worker, an enthusiastic representative and friend. The results of his work helped spread the gospel wherever he traveled. May the grace and comfort of the Lord be with each of you in the days ahead. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Blessings, Bill Noller
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
