Mr. Charles Wheeler was born to the late Spencer and Bessie Dixon Wheeler on March 1, 1944. God called him home on Thursday, August 9, 2018.
Charles affectionately called “Charlie” by family and close friends was educated in the Public Schools of Kershaw County and he graduated from Jackson High School, Camden, SC. After moving to Mt. Vernon, NY, Charlie was employed with the United States Postal Service. He returned to South Carolina in 1988 and continued his employment with the Postal Service from which he later retired.
He leaves to cherish his memories his devoted wife of 53 years, Mrs. Constance Bennett Wheeler; one loving son, Mr. Charles Keith (Pam) Wheeler of Lugoff, SC; six adorable grandchildren; six precious great- grandchildren; one brother, Mr. Leroy Dixon of Lugoff, SC; two sisters, Mrs. Mary (Nathaniel) Murphy of Columbia, SC and Mrs. Maggie Howard of Yonkers, NY; one sister-in-law, Mrs. Joanne B. Harris (Floyd) of Lugoff, SC; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, friends and caring neighbors.
Charlie always had a smile on his face through the good and bad days. He was lovingly called “Big Daddy” by all of his grandchildren and great- grandchildren. His transitioning was not a defeat. We celebrate him because we love and miss him dearly.
Charlie was predeceased by one sister, Mrs. Helen Blanding and one brother, Mr. Thomas Wheeler.
