Wendell had a long career of nearly 35 years at Utah Kennecott Copper. He was an extremely hard worker and excellent provider. An avid fly fisherman, he loved the outdoors & any excuse to spend time with his family.

Wendell took pleasure in the simple things in life. He was an extraordinarily strong man with a kind, gentle heart who dearly loved his family. He was happy, friendly, & gregarious and always had a sincere smile and a warm handshake for everyone he met. He will be greatly missed until we meet again.

    Uncle Wendell, You will be missed by me. Wendell was 5 years younger than me which always felt strange to have uncles younger than myself. Uncle Raymond is my same age. My sister Revo is the same age as Wendell. We always referred to them as my mothers younger brothers and sisters: with Glenn, Dan, Zelda, Ella Mae, Raymond and Wendell, as her half brothers and sisters. I surely love this Prows family.

    Hi Sharon, Wendell was a great friend growing up in Kanosh. He was so fun to be around, always making everyone laugh. I’m sure you will miss him. I’m sure your family and friends will step up to help fill the void. Helen Finlinson
