  1. Our condolences to Dorothy, Barbara, Arthur & the Wengert family. We always enjoy hearing my mom – Minnie Salazar- stories of trips with my dad, Dorothy & Arthur. They had many good times together. I remember Arthur as such a kind man. May he Rest In Peace.

  2. Efren Wengert, “Uncle Art” or “Unkie” helped raise me with Aunt Dorothy in my younger years. They lived next door to me so I often ran over and walked into his house to visit. While my parents worked, my Aunt cared for me and Uncle Art came home everyday for lunch. I loved this time with him, he made me laugh with his stories, often resulting in me being late to the afternoon session of school. He knew I had a love for cookies, as he did too. So he often shared with me a cookie during my visits, sneaking one out of the big white container hidden in the bottom cupboard, careful not to let my Aunt see us snitching cookies! We spent so many evenings sitting on the back porch, quietly or talking about our adventures, what he had read in the paper, or mostly about his loving family. In my later years when I would come for a visit, Uncle Art always made sure I ate a Rocky Ford cantaloupe or watermelon, as these were our favorite. He even insisted on me taking several home in my suitcase to share with my family 😂. I hold a special place in my heart for Unkie, and will always cherish my memories of our time together. May God watch over the Wengert Family during this sorrowful time and provide comfort in knowing Efron is with his Lord in eternal peace.
