BCI#44 Bruce Wendel; Rest in Peace

Bruce Wendel, BCI#22 joined in 1983 and was BCI's second president in 1984. He has recently been riding with his wife Karen on BCI rides.  We are stunned that he has passed just a month shy of his 62nd birthday. For those who knew Bruce' laughter & joyful personality, we share a bit of the loss to his wife, children and grandchildren.

Dear Family and Friends,

It is with deepest sympathy we inform you that Bruce Wendel entered life eternal on September 2, after suffering a stroke that affected his brain. He was surrounded by his wife, Karen, their five children, Bruce's mother, Ruth and family. Please keep them all in prayer.

A service to celebrate Bruce's life will be held on Monday September 12th at 7pm at Shepherd of the Hills United Methodist Church.  The address of the church is 26001 Muirlands Boulevard, Mission Viejo CA 92691.  A small reception will follow the service.
Bruce touched many people's lives.  We may not have everyone's email address.  Please feel free to forward this.
Thank you,
The Wendel Family
