    My thoughts and prayers are with you all at this difficult time. I got to know Wentzell when I volunteered at the Admiral. He was a great guy and always showed appreciation for everything that I helped him with. He always had a smile and a joke to tell. I will surely miss spending time with him when we are able to go back to volunteering. My sincere condolences to all the family.

    I spent many hours with Win not only at work but also in a social environment where he was always quick to tell a story . Win was tough at times but also a lot of fun to be around.He was never shy in expressing his views on the proper way to run a police department. Win's favorite line was "Not being critical but..." Sincere condolences to his family and if there is a CID in Heaven our past members better be prepared. The BOSS has arrived! Paul Bonang

    To Win's family my heartfelt prayers and condolences. My husband Donnie served on the DP Dept. with him in the late 60's. He was a good friend and fellow police officer. Loved playing cards and the social times with the rest of the crew. Take comfort in the memories. Donnie passed away last year in April. When our provincial restrictions allow we will have his arrangements. God Bless to all of you. Claire Richard

    Win's family: Win was a true leader at his time on the Dartmouth Police force.He was very knowledgeable,organized,sharp dresser and no nonsense kinda guy. Win enjoyed the social side of life and loved his time outdoors. He had many stories to tell and if he started one you might as well just sit down and listen. My thoughts and prayers are with you all,keep you happier and fond memories close to your heart. Kind Regards: Charlie A. Verge
