He enlisted in the Ogallala National Guard in May of 1964 and served until May of 1970.
On November 26, 1966, Wendall married Linda Griffiths. They lived 15 miles south and 1 mile west of Ogallala NE. To this union 3 children were born, Chad, Amy and Todd. Wendall moved his family to Sidney in June of 1972 where he went to work for Ruan Transport hauling fuel.

Wendall was a devoted husband, father and grandfather. Wendall enjoyed spending time with his children and grandchildren, hunting, shooting trap and going to all the events they participated in when they were in school. Several of the grandchildren had summer 4H projects. Wendall never missed going to the fair to see each one of them show their livestock, art work, photography or other projects they each had. He especially enjoyed the grandchildren sleeping over and making pancakes for breakfast for everyone. He was an avid motorcycle rider for the past 30 years.

I was privileged to be able to work with Wendall for one summer back in high school as well as growing up in Gurley. Great guy whom I respected a lot. May he be at peace.
