Brian N. “Mongo” Wenner
December 15, 1971 - March 4, 2022
Brian N. “Mongo” Wenner, age 50, of Earleville, MD, passed away on Friday, March 4, 2022.
Born in Baltimore, MD, on December 15, 1971, he was a son of Robert F. and Sandra (Stevens) Wenner. Brian worked as a maintenance technician at a Maryland marina and was known for his ability to fix anything. He was known to his fellow paintball enthusiasts as “Mongo” for his imposing stature on the playing field. Brian was an avid reader which made him a champion at trivia. Fishing and hunting gave Brian his quiet time with nature. He loved to cook and took great pleasure in seeing people enjoy what he had prepared. He spent several years working alongside his father with horses and cattle. As a teenager he was the “goose man” at Delaware Park, herding geese off the turf course to avoid accidents while the horses were running and later worked as an assistant starter. Brian will be remembered for his quick wit, creativity, and willingness to help whenever needed.
In addition to his parents, he is survived by his loving wife, Kimberly (Lewis) Wenner; brother, Michael Wenner (Stacy); children, Brittny Coleman, and Robert Coleman; granddaughter, Alina Rini; nieces, Alexis and Delaney Wenner; and nephew, Tyler Noethiger.
A visitation for family and friends will be held from 12 pm until 1 pm on Thursday, March 24, 2022, at First Presbyterian Church of Newark, 292 West Main Street, Newark, DE, where a memorial service will begin at 1 pm. Interment will be held privately.
