He was born in Mt. Clare on August 31, 1944, a son of the late Charley and Goldie Bolyard Wheeler.

He is survived by his wife of 54 years, Candy Stalnaker Wheeler, whom he met in the fifth grade and said then that he was going to marry her, and he did on July 5, 1966.

Mr. Wheeler was a retired Equipment Operator with Teamsters Local #789.  He enjoyed hunting, working on the farm and feeding his chickens, and going to Chamberlain’s in Lost Creek to hang out with all his friends.  Cotton always enjoyed riding his side by side or his John Deere tractor on the land where he was born and raised and lived his whole life.
