Henry Bruce Wangle served churches in Alabama, Louisiana, Georgia and Florida. He died Jan. 24 at the age of 75.
Wangle served 21 years in the Navy. He then attended the Baptist Bible Institute (now the Baptist College of Florida) in Graceville, Fla., and earned his master of divinity degree from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary before serving several churches in four states.
In Alabama, Wangle served as pastor of Pilgrim’s Rest West Baptist Church, Newton; Packer Memorial Baptist Church, Eastlake (which has since disbanded); and Mud Creek Baptist Church, Adger, before retiring in September 2006. He and his wife, Carolyn, became members of Maytown Baptist Church in 2007 where he served as a Sunday School teacher for the senior adult men and later senior adult couples.
Maytown Baptist Pastor John Killian said Wangle was “a faithful man.”
“He had a great zeal for the Lord and served faithfully as a pastor,” Killian said.
Wangle is survived by his wife, four children, six grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.
