Celebration Of Life On July 30th For George Richard Wendt, Founder Of O.A.R.S
Posted by: thepinetree on 07/14/2016 04:11 PM
Angels Camp, CA...George Richard Wendt, respected river runner and founder of O.A.R.S. (Outdoor Adventure River Specialists), died on Saturday July 9, 2016. He was 74. George died at the UC Davis Medical Center from complications caused by a non-Hodgkins lymphoma. After initially being diagnosed in late-August of 2015, then following what seemed to be a successful chemotherapy regimen, George began the spring in good health and with reasonable odds for five or more years cancer-free. His health took a turn for the worse, however, in recent weeks, ultimately leading him to check in to the hospital on June 17th with symptoms of extreme fatigue, stomach pain and faltering kidneys. Aggressive chemotherapy weakened his immune system, yet failed to stem the tide of the cancer invading his blood and kidneys; George’s lungs gave out at 1:36 pm on July 9th.
