Wendell was born on July 17, 1954 in Union County, NC, a son of the late Winfred Belk and Ruth Rape Belk. He believed in the benefit of a hard days work and spent 31 years at Continental Tire in Charlotte, NC. A faithful servant to his Lord and Savior, he believed God was everywhere, all the time. Wendell witnessed to those around him by volunteering at his church and the local rehab center. On August 28, 1971, Wendell married the love of his life, Mellany. They would spend the next 50 years building a life together and raising a son and two daughters. He was the sunshine for his family. Loved ones meant the world to Wendell, especially his grandchildren. He loved to be in their presence and expose them to the things that meant the most to him. Wendell enjoyed music, playing the harmonica, piano and singing. He also enjoyed being in nature, whether riding on his side by side with his wife through the mountains or playing with what he referred to as his “Tonka Toys”. Wendell was a wonderful man and will be greatly missed by all those that knew him.
Those left to carry on Wendell’s memory include his loving wife of 50 years, Mellany Simpson Belk; his son, Nolan Belk; his daughter, Cassie Bowlin (Brian); his daughter, Erica Thomas (Charles); his eight grandchildren; Savannah Thomas, Shelby Thomas, Deanna Dunn (Kyle); Bryson Thomas, Jake Bowlin, Samwise Thomas, Abby Bowlin, and Katie Bowlin.
