It is with great sadness we share with all that Wendell Simmons has left this life he loved so much on June 23rd, 2012 at 5:03am. We will all miss his charismatic and magnetic personality. He squeezed every ounce of fun, excitement and life out of every moment he lived. He was kind hearted to a fault and he always made you laugh. He could tell a story better than most and he was famous for being the one central to the punch line. He loved tennis and ping pong and was known to beat everyone, no matter age or ability. Wendell always had a song in his heart and he was the first one on the dance floor and the last one to leave.
He is survived by his wife of 24 years, Gerry, his mother, Vivian, his brother Glenn (Judy), his two children, Mark (Mark) and Wendy (Bob), his three step-children, John (Michele), Kelley (Jennifer), and David, his six grandchildren, Brandy, Candice, Tosha, Ambra, Melissa and Lauren and one great-grandchild, Aiden.
He fought valiantly to beat this disease of cancer and showed us all that a good man never dies, but lives with us in our re-telling of fond memories. So, please join us this Friday, June 29, 2012 at 10am for a memorial service to celebrate his life and a graveside ceremony at the family plot in Green Hills Cemetery at 2:45pm to lay him in his final resting place.
