Early Thursday morning, March 10, 1977, John C. Wengatz '09 went home to be with the Lord. For those of us who knew John and Helen Wengatz through many years, this was both a sorrow and a joy. But who would not rejoice in the ninety-six years of humble, devoted, and fruitful ministry of this great man of God.
