Harry was a baseball institution in the greater Daytona Beach area. He produced many fine umpires and lifelong friendships. His legend will live on. Chief, you will be missed...

As I teach young people to umpire, I hear Harry's voice in my head and find myself saying "this is how Harry taught me". Jim Rondeau, CCL 21

I got to meet Harry (he told me Mr. Wendelstedt was his dad) when I took the umpiring clinic his school so generously offer to us local amateur umpires. I know our kids have benefited greatly from this. I know because I am a better umpire for his generosity. My favorite memory? He was talking to a small group of us after one session. What did he want to talk about? The daughter of a friend had caught a record-setting fish, and he was extremely proud of her. I enjoyed listening to him talking about baseball in general and umpiring in particular. He will be missed by all who love baseball. Heaven now; next up, Cooperstown.

I was in the stands on May 31, 1968 when Mr. Wedelstedt made the call of the Century when he would not allow SF Giant Dick Dietz 1b & allowed the late Don Drysdale keep his scoreless streak continue. If you ever listened when Drysadle induced Jack Hiatt to pop up to Wes Parker for the final out in that famous 9th inning You could hear the pounding of the people in the stand behind home plate that was me & everyone else joined in. The other highlight of the game came when The late manager of the Giants Herman Franks was kicked out of the ballgame for protesting the call. Giant's 3b Coach Peanuts Lowery came walking down & you can see clearly how he put a plug of chewing tobacco in his mouth the size of a golf ball just to keep his mouth shut. RIP Henry you & Herman are now together once again. Thanks for the Memories.

I was a student at the school in 1990. Harry and Randy Marsh made it one of the greatest experiences of my life. 100% class act as a person and an umpire. I always took great joy when I was able to see Harry on TV or in Pittsburgh to work a Pirates game. Very proud to say he was my instructor and I had spent time with him. God Bless the family and Hunter. Your Dad will never be gone as long as you work games. Harry was one of a king who will be missed.

Dear Harry,Katherine,Amy,Greg and kids,

When there is love, any life is too short. Your dad had a way of making the joys of life contagious. He will long be remembered for his help with anyone who asked for it...a problem was always turned into a pleasant and companionable experience.

I know you are grateful for your life with your beloved dad, and I feel fortunate to have known him. What a loss to our community!

Love,
