Louis Benjamin Wheeler

April 29, 1923February 8, 2021

Louis Benjamin Wheeler III passed away peacefully in his Las Vegas home on February 8, 2021. Ben was born on April 29th, 1923to the parents of Louis B Wheeler II and Jessie Mae Wheeler, whom he adored.

He was always young at heart and you could never tell him he was old, no matter his age, and you could never win an argument. Ben was a World War II Veteran in the Army medical division. He then worked and retired from the United States Postal Services after 30 years.

Ben was a husband, a father, an Uncle, a Grandpa, a friend, and an all-around wholesomely good, mild-mannered man. He met and married Molly Flo-Ana Fields on September 14, 1946. Ben took great care of the love of his life throughout their 72 years together before her passing in February of 2019. Ben is also preceded by his daughter Janette Mae Lacy who passed in December of 2016.

Ben and Flo will live on through their remaining 5 children Louis B Wheeler IV, Jacqueline Goldston, Joshlyn Duckett, Donald Wheeler and Jeresa Liddell. As well as through the lives and stories told by their grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Fond memories and expressions of sympathy may be shared at for the Wheeler family.
