Van Wedegartner

Posted: Monday, September 13, 2010 3:33 pm

Fred VanDorn "Van" Wedegartner Jr., 41, of Wallis, passed from this life to Heaven Saturday, Sept. 11, 2010, at home surrounded by family and friends after a courageous 11-year battle against cancer. His incredible spirit for life, determination, strength and optimism inspired so many and taught us all so much.

Van, a lifelong resident of the Wallis and Houston areas, graduated from the University of Houston's pharmacy program and worked as the pharmacy manager for Wal-Mart in El Campo and Sealy for many years. He was a lifelong avid fisherman, hunter, golfer, and all-around outdoorsman. His fish fries and weekend gatherings were always a hit and united many. Van always enjoyed adventures - and antics - big and small, on land and on water, with family and friends. The stories are never-ending.
