Obituary - James Albert Wheeler

Farmer, fisherman, baseball fanatic.

Of humble origin; a family of railroaders. An independent and  impatient cuss, but tolerant for his era; not one to show emotion, less it was anger; a man of his times. More intelligent than he chose to let on. Estranged from  family the past decade. Former resident of El Paso, Fabens, Potsborro, and Lubbock TX. Passed in residence of Lakeridge Nursing in Lubbock. In many ways he never recovered from the poor health of his youth. In his thirties he was pestered by brain tumors...tis what took him in the end.

May he rest in peace.

Born Dec 11, 1930 in Tucamcari, NM
Died Feb 15, 2016 in Lubbock, TX
