Gabriel L. Wenger

March 23, 2008 — March 6, 2023


Gabriel Lavern Wenger was born to Gerald and Malinda (Peters) Wenger on March 23rd, 2008 in Mifflintown, PA. His life was tragically ended in a vehicle accident in the early morning hours of Monday, March 6th, 2023, along with his older brother Josiah.

Gabriel was the middle child in a family of seven children. While hidden behind a quiet and reserved facade, his lively, outgoing personality will be greatly missed in the home by his siblings and parents. There was a unique depth of perception and understanding that he possessed that soon would become apparent in interacting with Gabriel. He gave his heart to God and was baptized into the Church of God in Christ, Mennonite, on March 14th, 2021, by
Minister Israel Wengerd.

Gabriel enjoyed being with and spending time with his friends. Although his death was very sudden we feel thankful for his clear testimony. Gabriel loved to read and also took a keen interest in airplanes. He was a walking
encyclopedia on airplanes. He had a special place in his heart for his little niece and big plans of being the favorite uncle. He enjoyed a technical challenge like starting a new prepaid phone and his dreams were to be involved in his relatives custom farming operation which was just
becoming a reality. His dad treasures a random, clear smile recently received while passing the boys bedroom door.

His survivors include his parents, Gerald and Malinda, siblings Kaitlyn and Devonzhia Woods of Chattanooga, TN, Sharon, Laraine, Everett and Aleric all of the home, also one dearly loved niece, Azeenah Woods. Paternal grandparents Menno and Alta Wenger. Maternal uncles and aunts, Matthew and Vonda, Mahlon and Candace, Marlene and Noah Schrey, Roman and
Mary, Ronald and Gwen, Alvin and Josie, Andrew and Leslie. Paternal uncles and aunts, Denise and Lyndon Unruh, Lucille, Lester and Renee, Janet and Dale Penner, Eunice, Joanne and Gordon Bartel, Ernest and Rosanna, Rosalie and Verle Giesbrecht, Arlyn and Karen.

Josiah was predeceased by a cousin, Julianna and maternal grandparents, Aron and Eva (Hoover) Peters.
