Fort Recovery

Randall "Otis" Wendel, 59, of Fort Recovery, Ohio, passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday, January 16, 2024, at Mercer Health in Coldwater, Ohio. 

He was born on January 26, 1964, in Jay County, Indiana, to the late John and Mary Ann (Fiely) Wendel.

Randy is survived by his partner of 22 years, Leslie Stewart; his daughters, Britany (Cory) Adams of Coldwater, and Taylor (Travis) Flaute of St. Henry; his grandchildren, Devyn, Dawson, Darcy, and Riley; his siblings, Pam (David) Hicks, Gary (Margie) Wendel, and Joyce (Dan) Wilker, all of Fort Recovery; a close cousin, Wanda Fields of St. Henry; his in-law, Court (Sue) Stewart of Steubenville, Ohio; and numerous nieces and nephews. 

In addition to his parents, Randy was preceded in death by Leslie's parents, Harry and Mary Jo Stewart.

Randy was a 1982 graduate of Fort Recovery High School. He was a devoted businessman, working as a young boy for his father's business, Wendel Poultry Service. Randy served as their Vice President for many years. He was an avid car enthusiast, which showed through his love of collecting classic cars. Recently Randy developed a passion for animals and had a small piece of land, which he referred to as "Pappy's Ranch". Randy enjoyed history and was a professional "storyteller". His biggest passion in life was his 4 grandchildren. They had his heart, and he will forever be their "Pappy'".  Randy's big heart is evident as his legacy will live on through the gracious gift of tissue donation. 

A Mass of Christian Burial will take place at 10:30 AM on Monday, January 22, 2024, at Mary Help of Christians Catholic Church. Burial will follow in St Mary's Cemetery, Fort Recovery.
