On July 3, 2022, Wendell William Wilson, loving husband, and father, went home to be with Jesus at the age of 87.

Wendell was born on April 7, 1935, in Lark, TX to Gilbert and Annie (Black) Wilson. He graduated from High School in Meade, KS, in 1953, and received a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering from John Brown University. Following graduation from college, he was drafted into the United States Army where he served for 2 years. Wendell was employed as a draftsman/surveyor for American Natural Resources for 35 years.

On July 29, 1961, Wendell married the love of his life, Janet Nicholson, in Woodward, OK.

Wendell loved hunting, fishing, and sports. His cars were immaculate, his gardens were legendary, and his mower lines were always straight. His warm personality and sense of humor made him a friend to many.

Wendell was preceded in death by his father, Gilbert, his mother, Annie, and his sister, Charlene Largent. He is survived by his wife of nearly 61 years, Janet, of Nixa, MO, his two sons Wayde and his wife Sonya, Wayne and his wife Vivi, and his sister, Dorothy Wilson. Wendell has 5 grandchildren: Tristin, Trevor, Noah, Travis, and Cora, and 2 great-granddaughters: Aviana and Maisie.
