WENDELL ROBERT SMITH
(Strong Lightning Man)
October 9, 1973 - November 24, 2022
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Wendell Robert Smith, aka Jazz.
Wendell leaves to mourn his mother Mina; his brothers and sisters, Beverly, Carl, Clarence, Marvin, Glenda, Gerald, Marlene, Kelvin, Deborah, and Emery; numerous nieces and nephews; his sons, Simon and Trey.
He was a gifted artisan making beautiful dreamcatchers that found their way around the world. He was most proud that his work was gifted to a delegation of Chinese officials by the University of Winnipeg.
Wendell was predeceased by his father, Lawrence (Happy) Smith and his brother Raymond (Satch).
A service to honour his life will take place on Tuesday, December 6, 2022 at 2:00 p.m., in the Gilbart Funeral Chapel in Selkirk Manitoba.
"I know your life
On earth was troubled
And only you could know the pain
You weren't afraid to face the devil
You were no stranger to the rain"
- Vince Gill
