This ia irionic; I just pulled out my 1958 Nugget last night and noted wendels name to my wife that we used to run Varsity track at MCC and were in choir together. I knew he had gon overseas, but did not know the rest of his story about being a teacher, especially in an area (Oakland) that needed a good teacher so much. Wendel was a Good person and friend in HS, I'm sure he continued making good friends and being a great influence throughout his life. He is and will be missed. My prayers are with his wife and family, may they be proud of his full life and legacy.
