On September 28, 2023, HM1 Joel Douglas Windle passed away.  A memorial service honoring his life has been planned for Saturday, October 14, 2023 at 2:00 p.m. at Reflection Pointe Funeral and Cremation Services in Wichita, Kansas.  The service will be live streamed to allow participation from those who are unable to attend. 

Many have been asking how to help or send condolences, which is much appreciated.  We believe Joel would prefer any donations were directed towards a college fund for his children, Jeremiah and Zoe.  At 4 years old, Jeremiah aspires to be a Pterodactyl when he grows up. At 21 months, Zoe is already honing her talents as a food critic, specializing in chocolate. We know that there are some tough years ahead as they learn how to live a life without Joel. Any and all support towards their future education will be appreciated and gratefully accepted, preserved and used for the education of each child.
