Wendell and I were classmates at Los Angeles high school. We performed together in the concert band, marching band, drum and bugle corps, and the jazz band. Wendell was also a Gymnast. We ran into each other after high school stayed in touch and I might have had an influence in his decision to pledge Phi Beta Sigma. We formed a jazz group in the 80′s called Freefall and embarked on a short professional stint in the music industry.
Wendell was a true Brother and Friend in that he would if at all possible give a person a lift up if needed. He was there for me at a crucial point in my life and I’ll never forget it. Wendell was an engineer, and very adept at computer programming. He was a very light hearted person who didn’t take himself too seriously. He had a great sense of humor and you could count on him to make everyone laugh.
Although I didn’t participate, Wendell was a member of our Frats Championship Baseball Team 80′s 90′s .This Brother participated in many giving campaigns from ECF with Derrick Taylor, Camp SIGMA with Steve Roberts and Tim Harris, serving food at shelters and a lot of things I’m probably not aware of. What I’ve written is no doubt just a miniscule portion of what and who Wendell was as a person on this planet. I wish him well and would like once again to say, I’ll see you on the other side Wendell.
Dear Friend and Sigma Brother
