Retired from Winn Dixie warehouse as the "bug man" for 30+ years. He fought in the pacific campaign of WWII with the 1st Cavalry Division of the US Army; indeed he lost an eye in combat against the Japanese.
Mr. Wheeler was a devout Christian, but not merely the talking kind, He was the doing kind. He was without a doubt the hardest working retiree I ever saw. Yet his efforts weren't expended in the quest of mammon, but in the assistance of others – of people in need. There was always some old lady's clothes line that needed fixing, or someone in need of a ride somewhere – to a doctor's office maybe. He abhorred laziness, wastefulness, and dishonesty.
And he instilled in me a deep love of reading. Nearly every morning, very early, for many years he & I would read together in his study.
I can truthfully say that Mr Wheeler was one of the best friends I ever had.
