Wendell also served for a time in the United States Army.

Wendell was a member of the Berean Baptist Church in Pella. He enjoyed carpentry and woodworking. He loved vintage cars and was an Iowa Hawkeye fan. Wendell was an extremely kind and gentle man, well-liked by all who knew him. He always enjoyed his work experiences and was meticulous in his approach to all that he did.

Wendell passed away on October 17, 2014, at The Cottages in Pella, at the age of eighty-seven, following a brief illness.
