The Rev. Michael Wenning, the retired senior pastor of Bel Air Presbyterian Church who presided at former President Reagan's 2004 burial service in Simi Valley, died Tuesday at his home in Mission Viejo, one week before his 76th birthday. The cause was leukemia and kidney failure, said his wife of 54 years, Freda. From 1995 to 2001, Wenning led Bel Air Presbyterian Church, where former President Reagan and his wife, Nancy, had worshiped for years. The pastor also made regular visits to Reagan's home and Century City office when the former president, who had been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease, stopped appearing in public.
