Ronnie Wheeler

David Ronald “Ronnie” Wheeler, 65, of Sedalia, passed away unexpectedly Tuesday, August 27, 2019, near Hughesville.

He was born July 10, 1954, in Butler, son of Arthur Lee and Nadyne Ethlyn (Petty) Wheeler.

On April 11, 1975, in Sedalia, he married Debra Kay (Sprinkle). To this union two children were born.

Ronnie was a 1972 graduate of Smith-Cotton High School. He worked for Widel, Inc. as the shop foreman and scheduler. He also worked for Ewing-Schutte-Semler Funeral Home.

Ronnie’s life was centered around his family. He loved helping his son, Tim, with his sprint car racing, and attending all of his grandchildren’s sports activities. Ronnie was very loyal to his family and friends. He will be fondly remembered as an extremely hard worker, a prankster and a perfectionist. He was an avid Raiders and Yankees fan.

Ronnie was a Christian and a member of First United Methodist Church.

Surviving are his wife, Debbie, of the home; two children, Timothy Wheeler (Tabitha), and Haley Wheeler (Chris Paxton), all of Sedalia; six grandchildren, Alyssa, Kylah, Adelynn, Kinzer, Ali and Rylee; a brother, Gary Wheeler, of Sedalia; and three sisters, Vivian Cuba, Sue Brownfield and Debbie Bryden, all of Sedalia.

He was preceded in death by his parents.

The family will receive friends from 9:30 a.m. until service time Saturday at the church.

Honorary bearers will be Richard Finch, Mike Manley, John Foote and Aaron Widel.

Memorials may be given for a scholarship fund for Ronnie’s grandchildren with checks made to Debra Wheeler.

Arrangements are in the care of Heckart Funeral Home.
