Born on April 27, 1944 and raised in Magnolia, Columbia County, Arkansas, Walter “W.T.” Wheeler made his mark on this world. The son of the late Archie and the late Marie Tuggers Wheeler, he departed this life for his heavenly home at Dallas, TX, on December 12, 2019. He was seventy-nine.
W.T. believed in staying busy and wore many hats. He was a retired printer and landscaper with a love for the beauty of the outdoors. The only things that he loved more were his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and his family. In Baptist ministry, Rev. Wheeler so enjoyed sharing the good news of our Savior, working to ensure that none would be lost.
Until they should be reunited, memories of him will be cherished by his wife of fifty-five years, Betty Sharp Wheeler, of Dallas, TX, two sons: Byron Wheeler, of Wichita Falls, TX and Walter, Jr.(Rhonda) Wheeler, of Dallas, TX, six grandchildren, eight great-grandchildren, and two brothers: Sylvester Wheeler, of Little Rock, AR and Archie B. (Vera) Wheeler, of Muskegon, Mi.
