John C. Wenstrom, 70, of Salida died September 6, 2021 at home. He was born July 8, 1951 in Fremont, Michigan to Carl and Minnie Wenstrom. John was by inclination and training a research scientist; he received his Ph.D. in Anatomy, with an emphasis on BioMed Engineering, from the University of Minnesota. He met his wife Sue there, working in the next lab. He was a member of Salida Elks Lodge 808 for many years and had many roles in the organization, but his favorite was as an informal historian for the Lodge. Before he became ill, he could often be found on the third floor of the Lodge, digging through a closet full of old files, looking for the odd date or event to fill out his records. John was preceded in death by his parents and his younger brother Tom. He is survived by his wife Sue, his sister-in-law Cheryl, and his nephews Thomas and Christopher (Emily) Wenstrom. A private service will be held later this year in his home town of White Cloud, Michigan. Arrangements are with Lewis and Glenn Funeral Home. Online condolences may be offered at
