I recognised Wendell from High School at a vacuum repair shop in my neighborhood of Westmoreland where I would bring in my machine for repair and servicing.  He was extremely shy and quiet but always did outstanding work, quickly, and at a fair price. 

I went one day to bring in my vacuum and the shop was closed up.  I asked a local merchant when it was to open again and they said that the fellow had commited suicide (how sad!).  That really bummed me out because I missed the opportunity to connect with someone who I went to school with but was "too shy" to mention it. 

I'd heard he left behind a wife and family.

I can't verify any of these facts, but couldn't just let him be forgotten.

Missed opportunities - kind of makes you wonder if a simple conversation or missed one added to whatever was going on.
