Wendell was loved by many in the New Union Community. He loved cattle farming especially seeing those newborn with their antennas “tails” up in the air running through the pasture. He enjoyed teaching his grandchildren how to cut, rake and bale hay and work all the farming equipment. He also taught them how to take care of the animals.
He loved his little girl even though he exhibited a strong hand at times. He was so proud of her when she performed at piano recitals and was in the color guard at the Boaz High School Band.
Wendell also had a long career as an automotive mechanic with his specialty being air conditioning and wiring. He gained many friends throughout the many years in this profession.
He loved planting and watching the garden grow. He wasn’t good at hoeing the garden, he often would think okra plants were morning glories and carrots were weeds, so he left the hoeing up to Karren. The thing he most enjoyed about the garden was being able to eat the fruits of his labor. Many people would stop and tell him how beautiful his garden was.
A special thanks to the staff of MMCS, Boaz, especially all the health care workers of the ICU who put their lives in danger while taking care of others.
A special thanks also to Carr Funeral Home of Boaz for the care and concern shown through out this difficult time.
