He was a lifelong resident of Nederland, and loved his Nederland Bulldogs. He graduated from Nederland High School in 1972 and received a scholarship to Blinn College to play baseball. Wedge knew his savior, the Lord Jesus Christ and was an active member of Fellowship Church in Nederland faithfully for 17 years. Wedge worked at Gerdau Ameristeel in Rose City for 40 years. Wedge was involved with Nederland Little League, softball and Mid- County Babe Ruth for over 35 years. In his early years he played fast pitch softball for the Port Arthur Saints. Wedge was a special person who volunteered for youth baseball as a coach, umpire, foul ball chaser, and many other jobs. He played Babe Ruth in his youth. No matter what sporting event it was you could almost guarantee Wedge would be at the game.

He absolutely loved going to support his kids and grandkids in any activity or hobby that they were all involved in. His most important thing in life was no matter what he had going on in his life he always made sure he spent time with his friends and family because that’s what meant the most to him.
