Wendell P. Frisinger, 56 of Barron, Wis., passed away Saturday, August 4th, 2018. Wendell was born March 8th, 1962 to Donald and Sandra (Wavada) Frisinger of Barron.

Wendell grew up with his sister Mary on their family farm with Donald and step mother Pat (Crotteau) Frisinger. He attended Barron High School and was an exceptional athlete who broke the school pole vault record his freshman year. He graduated in 1980.

Wendell found his passion for driving truck while working for his fathers business. Wendell spent his career as a truck driver. He worked for many companies over the years most of which were over the road. He was able to travel the country and had a great sense of direction as if he had an internal atlas. He prided himself on how his truck looked. Countless hours were spent painting tires or polishing the tank. He would drive his truck down town to “show it off” or to see its reflection in the store windows.

Wendell had a fun-loving personality and had a playful spirit. He loved to joke around, pull pranks, tell stories and make people laugh. He was a child at heart. He brought a smile to everyone he encountered. In his free time he enjoyed shining deer, fishing and hunting with his friends. There was never a shortage of laughs.

Wendell Married Teresa (Adler) in 1986 and together had two daughters Megan and Morgan Frisinger. They divorced in 1993. On March 10th, 2006 Wendell married the love of his life, Valerie (Olson-Chucka). Their marriage extended his family with her three children Corey, Shane and Lacey Chucka. Not long after he gained the title of Grandpa.

Wendell was survived by his wife Valerie (Olson-Chucka) Frisinger. Sister Mary (Kurt) Van Roy, Brother Bernie (Paula) Rominski. Daughters, Megan and Morgan Frisinger. Step-sons Corey (Mary), Shane (Tracie) Chucka and step-daughter Lacey (Matt) Findley.
