Jerry L. Wendling, 76, passed away peacefully at his home Thursday, Dec. 23, 2021.
A celebration of life will be held at a later date.
Jerry was born Oct. 28, 1945, to Harry Wendling and Velma Theel Wendling. He was a great husband, father and grandfather.
Jerry retired from Delaware County and worked part-time for Rally Transportation until his health issues made him retire.
His passion was fishing. He always said any day was a good day to fish unless the wind was out of the east.
