The New Era - All about Sweet Home since 1929

William J. Wend


April 30, 2014

Dec. 15, 1932 - April 26, 2014

William J. Wend, 81, of Lebanon, quietly left his earthly home and stepped into eternity on Saturday.

He was born in Rensselaer, New York to Joseph and Delores (Moxon) Wend.

In life he was a design engineer, and during the pinnacle of his career he helped design the lunar landing gear for the Apollo program.

He was a great Bible teacher and loved God with his whole heart. He has left a crater-sized hole in our lives. So we fix our eyes, not on what is seen, which is temporary, but on what is unseen, which is eternal. We fix our eyes on Jesus!

Besides his family and friends he is survived by his ranch, in his eyes the most beautiful place on earth.

William is survived by his wife Loretta; son Mark; daughters: Paula and Cheryl; sons-in-laws Dean and Earl; grandchildren Samantha, Christian, Caden, Kelsen, Earl, Cameron and Christa; great-granddaughter Londyn; sisters Jean, Marilyn, Carol-Anne and Sharon; close friends Fred, Gill, Pastor Mark, Bobby, Glen and Farmer John.

Celebration of life for family and friends to be announced later this summer at the Wend Ranch.

Sweet Home Funeral Chapel is handling the arrangements.
