Murlin Ray Wenzel, beloved brother, uncle, friend, and cousin, returned to his Heavenly Father on October 29, 2012, from his home in Orem after a long battle with cancer. Murlin was born December 24, 1960, in Provo, UT, to Velma Moosmann Wenzel Lyman.

He grew up in Tridell, UT, where he and his family lived with "Granny" Harvey, until he left for college. As a young man, he earned his Eagle Scout and used his skills in many adventures throughout his life. He graduated from Union High in Roosevelt, UT. After graduation, he moved to Orem to attend BYU. After his Mexico, Veracruz mission for the LDS church, he returned to Orem, continued his schooling while touring with the Young Ambassadors as a sound tech and graduated with a BS from BYU. Murlin was hired by Novell/IBM and spent his entire career writing programming, teaching, and traveling for the same company. While living in Orem, the past 25 years, he has served his church and community by working in the Scouting program helping other boys earn various merit badges, by serving as Young Men's Secretary, and as his Bishop's Executive Secretary. Murlin was an excellent small aircraft pilot and his hobbies included flying remote control helicopters and Ham radio operating. He entertained family and friends with his intricate amateur magician tricks and was greatly respected for his intelligence and problem solving skills.
