After 20+ years of working together on many projects, I truly appreciate his abilities and willingness to be helpful. Now I never knew about the "Chunky" nickname, so that's news to me. Sure would have used that if I'd known. I trust God and our prayers will see you through this sad event. Wendle was taken too soon from all of us.

KONE, October 11, 2017 My condolences to Wendle's family. May God give you peace and love during this difficult time. Sondi Cooper Albro, October 11, 2017 Wendle worked for me at KONE for a number of years. He was always willing to step up and take ownership of issues and he was by far the best at helping our field technicians with their Tiraks. ALL the field guys loved him because he was smart and could walk them through fixing their problems. I could never have managed without him. And he always listened to stories about my daughter. I will really miss his smiling face and his ball cap. God bless his family. Christine Harden, October 11, 2017 Beth, I am so very sorry for loss!
