Alex Wentzel

Alex PhotoOur dear friend Alex Wentzel passed away on Wednesday, January 5.

Alex touched many people in his active life. From the formation of RUFF (Rescuing Unwanted Fury Friends) to getting the Laguna Beach City Council to approve a Dog Park, to being the first President of the Log Cabin Republican Club of Orange County, to being on the first ASF Board of Directors (AIDS Services Foundation), to being the treasurer of the successful city council campaigns for Wayne Peterson and Cheryl Kinsman and a board member of the Laguna Beach Taxpayers Association. In addition, he was chosen by KFI, as the “Citizen of the Week” for all of Southern California.

Our condolences to his partner Richard Anderson - they would have celebrated their 51st year together on Valentine’s Day.

There will be a memorial service and celebration luncheon on Saturday, January 22.
