Deacon George Wheeler | Arrangements

Progressive family,

It is with profound sadness that I share the passing of our brother, Deacon George Wheeler. A gentle, witty spirit with a love for his family, his church and the fellowship of the Christian Education classroom–he shall be missed.

Please keep Deaconess Mary Wheeler, Sis. Tori Ewing and the rest of his family and loved ones in prayer.

“We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord.” 2 Cor 5:8

In love and sadness,



The funeral will be on Friday, December 2 at Progressive 8324 W. Keefe Avenue. The viewing will be at 12 pm and the funeral at 1 pm.

The Wheeler’s have asked for a brief funeral. We will honor the family with brevity and celebrate the beauty of life. The committal will be at Graceland Cemetery, 6401 N 43rd Street. The repast will also be at Progressive.
