Marvin Charles Wendland, age 82, tossed his oxygen bottles to the wayside and breathed the sweet air of Heaven, December 20, 2020.
Marvin was born February 5, 1938 in Eola, Texas, the 4th child of August and Clara Wendland. He grew up in Eola and graduated from Eola High School with honors in football and basketball.
Marvin went to work for Merchant Fast Motor Lines where he worked for 38 years, never failing to receive a safe driving award. The man could drive a truck! Always one to stand up for what was right and fight for the underdog, Marvin became a union steward, fighting for the best interest of his fellow truck drivers.
Marvin was a people person and was always in for a good time. Many memories and good times were had playing softball for the Charcoal House, hunting trips to the deer pasture in Menard or Fishing o Lake Buchanan. Later on, in retirement, Marvin could be found getting the latest gossip at the sale barn or acting as the unofficial greeter at the Northside Wal-Mart.
Marvin’s greatest pride and joy was his family. He was the happiest being Poppy to “his grandsons” – Jett and Creed. He loved cooking them Poppy’s famous ribs and attending their sporting clay events. He beamed with pride every time he recanted a shoot. He was the best shooting Grandpa there was, supporting all of the shooters.
Left to remember the good times are his wife of 60 years, Doris Elaine Ernst Wendland, daughters; Teresa Wendland, Karla Thompson and her husband Tom, and their sons, Jett and Creed. His baby brother Eugene Wendland and his spouse Doris Wendland (not the same Doris!!!!!). He is also survived by his brothers-in-law Ray Ernst (Laurette) and Bob Ernst (Lauren) also with numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, family and friends. Also, his special brother by another Mother Pat Pritchard and his special Buddy Juan Leal.
Marvin was preceded in death by his parents, his sisters Dorothy Holubec (Julius), Helen Mahlow (Lavan) and Nora Mae Halfmann (Lee Allen), his in-laws – Fred and Theo Ernst.
Since Dad died of COVID complication, we feel this is not the time to congregate and will plan a memorial at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be sent to your favorite charity.
A special thanks to Dr. John Harvey, Alma, and staff at Shannon Clinic for excellent care for so many years.
