Chink-chink for chunk-chunk toys

That was a funny expression that Dr. Steve Wenger used in a lecture. I took a couple extra psychology classes than I needed, just because Dr. Wenger made them interesting — fun even.

A student who was scheduled to meet with Dr. Wenger, Tuesday afternoon, found him dead, apparently from a heart attack. He was 58. He had just turned in the grades after the last finals. Someone just told me this morning that he had a history of heart problems (possibly even a heart attack back in 1997 — I graduated in the spring of ’97). I hadn’t heard that before.

Dr. Wenger was an avid collector of electronics, a musician and a ham radio operator. Memorial Mass will be celebrated 2 p.m. Friday at the Church of Our Saviour in Jacksonville, with burial at Calvary Cemetery. Family will meet friends from noon-1:30 p.m. Friday at Williamson Funeral Home. Condolences may be sent to the family online at Airsman-Hires’ site.
