I will always remember my Uncle Wentz as a kind and good natured man who treated me with so much kindness. Until the last few years, he and I exchanged information and stories about the family ancestors and his role in World War II. I always looked forward to his handwritten letters at Christmas. He will always have a special place in my heart.
My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Our deepest sympathy to the Wenzel "Wentz" Lang family. We were glad to have received a Christmas card from Wentz. Jacque and I visited your Mom & Dad years ago in Bellevue, a long time ago, he even got his guitar out and played a little for us. My mother, Catherine Voit Cinski always kept in touch with Wentz and Alice. He was a good natured man and sorry to hear of his passing. Love and God Bless, Jacque & Bernie Cinski

Wentz was a tremendous help "showing me the ropes" when I became editor of the Bellevue Mariner news letter. His service to the Knights of Columbus, his Country, and his fellow man will never be forgotten. God bless him and all his family now and always.
