STANG, Wendelin (Wendel)

December 20, 1928 – August 10, 2013.

Wendel passed away peacefully in his sleep at the Vernon Jubilee Hospital. He is survived by his 5 children: sons: Jim Stang (Sharon), Rob Stang (Kelley), and Patrick Stang; daughters, Gisele Gerlinsky (Don), and Paulette Bookey (Stang); 15 grand children and 3 great grand children.

Wendel lived for golf, loved art and was a fine craftsman. There are many homes in the Okanagan Valley and throughout British Columbia that are blessed with his fine craftsmanship as a finishing carpenter and cabinet maker. As an accomplished artist, Dad enjoyed many hours out in the countryside sketching and painting scenes, trees and buildings. In the studio, Wendel spent many hours putting his vivid imagination on canvas. Some humorous, thought provoking and downright beautiful paintings were created. Dad’s legacy as an artist and craftsman has been passed down to his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. When it came to golf, it was an art form as well. As a brother, dad and grandpa, you’ll be sorely missed.

An intimate funeral was attended by family and close friends on Thursday, August 15, 2013, at the Pleasant Valley Funeral Chapel. Condolences may be sent to www.pleasantvalleyfh.com
