Kenneth “Ken” Wondergem went home to his Heavenly Father, beloved parents, and family and friends that preceded him on June 13, 2019. He will surely receive a warm welcome. After a lifelong, valiant fight against a merciless disease, he found his ultimate healing in God’s hands. He faced adversity head on and lived a full life with his family in Virginia Beach, settling in North Carolina in 2018.

He had a gregarious and spirited nature, and loved to tell a lively story or give an impromptu history lesson. He was devoted to his church and made a mark on many with his giving nature for all who needed a hand to pull themselves up. This went far beyond his family but extended to anyone he saw in need of grace and friendship.

He will always be remembered for his reverence of a well-planned road trip and a good old-fashioned map, his Motown dance moves, a passion for East Carolina football, a love of Virginia peanuts, his undying loyalty, his service to his family, country and community, his generosity, and his fighting spirit.

He is survived by his loving, devoted and cherished wife and college sweetheart of 48 years 5 months and 16 days, Carmen; his three daughters Cat (Rick), Kendall (Joe) and Keri (Andy), grandson Anderson, sisters Diane (Jerry) and Donna. The family extends deep gratitude to Jamie Beane for her help and understanding in this time.

A memorial will be held on Tuesday June 18, 2019 at 3:00 pm at Chandler’s Grove United Methodist Church in New London, NC. The family will receive friends prior to the service from 1:30-2:45 pm at the church. A reception will be held following the memorial service at the home of the Wondergem family.

I have such fond memories of your family when I photographed your daughter's wedding.
Ken was a warm, friendly person who was also very dignified.
You all were a very special family and I am sorry for Ken's passing. I'm sure you will treasure
many good memories of time with him.
My love to you all,

Gayle Donovan

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Ken Wondergem was my 7th-grade teacher at Malibu Elementary. His influence on me has been with me my entire life. I am so thankful for his love of science, his genuine desire to teach, his innate ability to command respect and his amazing sense of humor. I still share a card trick with people that he taught me over 45 years ago. I pray peace upon all that are left behind by this wonderful man.

Dennis and I are so sorry to hear of Ken's passing. Know he has been ill for a long time. Hope you can take comfort in knowing he is no longer in pain or discomfort but in the loving arms of our Lord. God bless you and your girls. Our prayers are with you.

I am sorry to read about the passing of Mr. Wondergem. I was in his class when he taught science at Virginia Beach Junior High in the 70’s. He was my favorite teacher of all time. He was kind, funny and handsome. He would tease me about being the smallest kid in the school. The class field trips to Washington, DC were full of good memories. God Bless him and condolences to his family. Ann Knudson Burnett
