Thomas Patrick Wheeler, a beloved husband, father, and grandfather, 73, of Barnesville, Ohio passed into the arms of our Lord on October, 23rd 2023 peacefully at home surrounded by his family.

He graduated from Zane Trace High School in 1969. He was a truck driver by trade with over 4.5 million miles traveled across  forty-eight states of our beautiful country. Tom enjoyed farming and hunting where he grew up as a boy and like his mother, planting flowers and vegetables was a great past time for him.  When Tom was not at home on the weekends, many times you would find him spending time at his campsite, working on the houseboat, lending a hand with anyone who needed it, and getting some fishing time in. He was also a long time member of the Belmont Better Hunting & Fishing Club where he was their Club President and Trustee for several terms. After being baptized, Tom became a member of the First Christian Church of Barnesville.
