Lorraine, and children Wendy Beeler, Julie Jernigan, Charlene Stephens, Laura Kim Compton, Tony Bosstick, Niki Laviolette, Vicki Myers, a brother, Nelson Colglazier, 13 grandchildren, and 12 great grandchildren.  He is preceded in death by two sons; Brian Lee and Mark Allen Colglazier. Wendell formerly taught at Honey Creek, Woodrow Wilson, and Glenn schools in Vigo County.  Wendell served his country in the Army during the Korean War.  He also worked for Pfizer for 10 years, and was a former part-time minister for Liberty Church of Christ.
