Lendall loved his wife Sherry with everything that he had and he was the best daddy and grand-daddy in the world!! He was a wonderful example to his children…he taught them how to be a good husband, father and to work hard for everything you have.
He was a proud veteran of the Korean War and loved his country!!
Lendall loved his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, the bible and going to church on Sunday…he read his bible faithfully, every day. He was a fisherman at heart but also worked at BIW as a security guard and in the tool crib and retired from that job. He loved to plant flowers and build bird houses and whistled all the time he was doing it. In fact, he always whistled while he worked.
Rest in peace….We love you very much and will miss you every day of our lives! Your loving family~
