He passed away on Saturday, August 26, 2023, at his home from heart failure.
Wendell was a Baptized Christian and a good and simple man. He believed in being honest and loyal. He loved history and he could tell us facts that we didn’t know even existed. He loved to fish, camp at Albert Pike, and enjoy the outdoors with his family. He loved riding his Harley and college football.
He worked at Cooper Tire for 10 years, but after an injury he was not physically able to do the things he loved in the outdoors.
He is preceded in death by his father, Kenneth Fink, his stepfather Dave Austin, and his grandparents Mary and Wendell Fink, Papaw and Mamaw Shope, and his uncles Curtiss Shope and Bobbie Maddox.

And James Shope of Texas; father and mother-in-law Rick and Melinda Munn of Texarkana, AR.; as well as numerous aunts, cousins, and friends.
