Benjamin Andrew Wheeler
Birth: Sep. 12, 2006
New York County (Manhattan)
New York, USA
Death: Dec. 14, 2012
Sandy Hook
Fairfield County
Connecticut, USA

Benjamin was an irrepressibly bright and spirited boy whose love of fun and excitement at the wonders of life and the world could rarely be contained. His rush to experience life was headlong, creative, and immediate. He was a devoted fan of his older brother, and the two of them together filled the house with the noise of four children. He loved the local soccer program, often running across the field long after it was actually necessary, but always smiling and laughing as he moved the ball, nearly always at full tilt. He was becoming a strong swimmer and loved his lessons. Eager to learn, he could not wait to get to school to see his teacher and his growing group of new first grade friends. Ben was also a member of Tiger Scout Den 6, which met at the Sandy Hook Volunteer Firehouse. Earlier in December, Ben performed at his piano recital, and sitting still long enough to play one piece was an accomplishment he reveled in. He loved The Beatles, lighthouses, and the number 7 train to Sunnyside, Queens.

Benjamin was a victim of the tragic events which took place at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.

Remembering a sweet boy who is now with the Angels in Paradise. May God comfort his poor parents who Love and Miss him every day. As a mother, I cannot conceive of their pain. With sincere sympathy in Oregon,
