Timothy Charles Wheeler

Timothy Charles Wheeler passed away suddenly July 10, 2017. Timmy (to his friends) was born November 10, 1962. Tim started his life in Tahoe in the third grade at Tahoe Valley Elementary and never left Lake Tahoe again.

He loved skiing (learning at the South Tahoe hill), boating, snowmobiling, dirt biking, and hanging out with his friends (brothers on the beach). Everyone called him “Tahoe Timmy”. He loved Lake Tahoe and honored this place deeply and also loved his work.

Tim became owner of Wolfe Plumbing after working for the company for many years with Ted Wolfe, Chuck Wheeler (his dad), Lenard Wheeler (his uncle) and Tim Quinn (his brother-in-law).

He was preceded in death by Bernadette Wheeler (Mother); Charles Harvey Wheeler Jr. (Father); Gregory Wheeler (Brother).

Timmy is survived by Marijo Wheeler Quinn & Tim Quinn, as well as many aunts, uncles, cousins, niece and nephew and of course his many friends and working associates.

As we travel Life’s weary journey, and plod through the gathering years, with our burdens of care and sorrow, o’er a pathway bedewed with tears. If, perchance, for a fleeting moment our hearts should with rapture swell, we have added but one more sorrow, when we bid the glad time “Farewell”.

Memorial Service will be announced at a later date
