Weasel was a huge coin and antique collector. He had a big heart and was a giver; helping anyone who needed it. He actually helped many homeless people in the community. Weasel was a straight shooter; he told you like it was, whether you wanted to hear it or not. Weasel was proud of his animals, loved comedy and was an avid Minnesota Vikings fan.

He was preceded in death by his parents Paul and Sharon, brother James Wentzel in infancy, sister Denise Wentzel, aunts Vivian Stoekel, Millie Hedum, Donna Cochran, Viva McGonigle, and Nettie Greenman, uncles Donny Belden, Jesse McGonigle, James Wentzel and Robert Wentzel.
