Jeffrey Dale Wheeler was preceded in death by his parents James Clayton and Dorothy J. Wheeler, a brother, James (Bruddy) Wheeler; and sister, Jessica (Debra) Snow... Jeffrey Dale Wheeler died unexpectedly on July 31, 2021, at the age of 54. He was born on August 17, 1966 in Nashville, Tennessee.
He attended the public schools of Nashville, Tennessee. Jeffrey graduated from Glencliff High School in 1984.
He was the youngest sibling of ten sisters and brothers. Growing up in a close- knit family was one of Jeff's greatest joys. He loved hanging out with his family... whether it was playing cards with his brothers, working on cars, riding motorcycles, and/or assisting his sisters with repairs around the house. Even though he was the youngest, he still was very protective of his sisters. But, he still never missed an opportunity to tease his sisters and/or nieces/nephews. As well as, according to him making sure no "knucklehead boys," took advantage of his sisters and/or nieces.
As he got older he developed a passion for fishing, boating and playing golf games on his phone. Additionally, Jeff enjoyed grilling and cooking out for his family, according to him he was a "grill Master." But I must admit I think one of his greatest joys and challenges was figuring out how those numbers were going to fall for the Powerball.
This same ambitious attitude wasn't just demonstrated in the quest for the winning Powerball number, but on his Job as well. With this driving force, he rose up through the ranks at Jenkins & Associates to the level of Warehouse Manager, where he worked for 8 years (2013-2021). When the company merged/sold, he transferred to Williams Electrical Supplies (2021--)
