Wendell Leroy Bryan

November 4, 1940 — January 27, 2024


Indianapolis, Indiana – Wendell Leroy Bryan passed away on January 27, 2024, while being comforted by his family. Wendell was born on November 4, 1940, to Roy Kendall Bryan and Margaret (Butcher) Bryan in Spencer, Indiana.

Wendell served in the United States Navy, and after leaving, began working at Ford Motor Company. He retired after 37 years of service in 1997.

Wendell enjoyed spending time away from work as well. He could be found building models, watching game shows, or fixing cars for his children. However, he most loved spending time with his beloved wife of 59 years, Carol, and the rest of the family. Summers would be filled with camping trips across the country, taking in the sights with his children, then grandchildren, and then great-grandchildren.

He is survived by his wife Carol; his children Jim Bennett (Teresa), Sheri Bennett-Fasbinder, Kimberly Green (Tom), Patrick Bryan (Brenda), Mike Dean Bryan; brother Clifton Bryan (Donna); sister-in-law Francis; daughters-in-law Melissa and Eliva; 49 grandchildren; 59 great-grandchildren, and 1 great-great-grandchildren.
