Wendell, you will truly be missed......Our last conversation was how you kept someone from breaking into my house with your shotgun, of course it took a shot over the guy's head to realize you wasn't joking about staying still & the time you took care of a big dog that about killed my dog Max.

It pains me to learn of Mr. Smith's passing. I have bought two Australian Shepherds from him. I did not know him well, but I always enjoyed stopping by and visiting with him. Not knowing him long, we would sit for the longest time trying to see what friends we might have in common. I will remember him as an honest and happy man. He was one of the good guys who are few and far between. I offer my condolences to his friends and family. God bless you all.

I went to school with Wendell. As many others have said, Wendell was a friend to everyone he met. My parents were friends with his back when we were all in high school and his brother, Mike, hung out at our house a lot. I wil miss him at future class reunions. I know his family and many friends will miss him even more.

Wendall was a friend to all! I don't think I've ever known anyone that had touched so many people's lives in one way or another.There were no age barriers for him; He loved his friends and family, young & old alike.
I know that he loved my precious son-in-law, daughter and grand kids; Stacy & Carissa. He was so dear to them and his passing has left a hole in their hearts. Wendell had special gift that drew poeple to

Carrie, sorry for your familys loss. Wendell was a great guy and fun to be around, even when he would come by from getting his treatments he always talked about his horses and his grandson Maxx. He will be missed by many.
