Wendt, Randolph N. “Randy”

Randy was called home to our Lord on Monday, November 30th, 2020 age 72 years. Beloved husband of Diane (nee Bruhn) for 50 years. Loving dad of Cyndi (Andrew Stake), Becky(Terry Williams), Nate (Kelly), and Jolene (Johnny Kruichak). Loving grandfather of Amber, Jazmyn, Deviahn, Aleena, Miracle, Bethany, Molly, McKayla, and McKenzie. Dear brother of Kathryn (Bill) Helm. Survived by nieces, nephews, other relatives, and friends. He was preceded in death by his parents Louis and Laona (nee Krause), brother Gerald, and sister Ellen Sucharew.

Special thanks for the devoted care given to Randy by his “adopted son” Andrew Stake and the staff of Seasons Hospice.

Randy was born in Milwaukee. He was baptized, confirmed, and married in Christ Evangelical Lutheran Church. He attended South Division High School, graduating June 1966. He worked as a draftsman at George Meyer’s, and then later went to work at General Electric Medical Systems as a draftsman designer for 45 years. While at GE he and an Engineer were awarded a patent for the CAT scan table. His favorite pastimes included bowling, dart ball, softball leagues, playing sheepshead, and gardening. He especially loved his roses. He enjoyed camping and loved spending time at the cottage in Crivitz, WI. He loved his fish tanks. He was active in church whether it was ushering or participating in school board, men’s club, board of elders, church council, and senior choir among other church activities.

Randy was always designing and building things. Whether it be the many remodeling projects to the house or the backyard deck to the house and cottage, there was always a project.

He was a big Packer and Brewers fan. He enjoyed taking his family to Brewers games at the Milwaukee County Stadium/Miller Park.

Randy deeply loved his Lord and Savior and his family. He lived for providing for and protecting his family. He was generous and kind. He will be deeply missed by all.

    You will be dearly missed. My deepest condolences to Diane, Becky, Cindy, Jolene & Nate and all of the family members Randy loved so very, very much. Thoughts and prayers to the family.

    On a lighter, more humorous note, Randy once tried to teach me how to play Sheepshead but it didn’t happen. The Wendt family were playing at a holiday gathering Nate and Kelly hosted. I think I’ll stick with Cribbage!

    Sending hugs to Randy’s wife, Diane and his sister, Kathy. Recalling the special times back in the late 60’s when Randy joined Kathy and me for pizza at Mr. D’s. It was a great time. There were quite a few times when I was visiting Kathy that Randy drove me home so I did not have to take a bus at night or have my dad drive from north side of Milwaukee to south side. He was a very special guy!! Want to give my deepest sympathy to Diane, Kathy and the rest of Randy’s family. Saying prayers for all of your during this sad time.

    I remember Randy playing air guitar with his friend Bill Papke when I used to hang out at the Wendt’s with Ellen and Kathy. Like Patti, I remember ordering Pizza from Mr. D’s. I remember vividly going to Randy and Diane’s wedding reception. They were my neighbors for a few years on 23rd St. He was a fine man.
