Donel Wheeler Obituary

Donel Wade Wheeler, 19, died Saturday, March 2, 2024, as a result of injuries sustained in an automobile accident.

He was an amazing young man and a very giving person. He wrote two books growing up as a child, Unwanted and Wanted.  His whole persona was; whoever was around him, he wanted them to be good. He was raised by his grandmother and Mike.  He would tell anyone his dad is Mike.  As a little boy and to this day, you were apt to hear, “Mike, Mike, Mike,” all day long, there was always a question. Grandma got the mechanic question as she was the personal assistant for appointments of everything.  Donel was attending school studying to be a child therapist to help all children, mainly those whose parents had addiction problems.  He was so forgiving to the extent of forgiving his stepmother Momo.  He was an avid beginner sneaker collector and seller, which Mike will continue as one of Donel’s legacies.  He was always trying to help the homeless and mentor younger children.  He will be remembered as a caring young man and will always be in our hearts.

You were a striving young man with so many dreams. I, Michael, will try my best to make your dreams come true and the one that meant the most to you was helping as many homeless families as you could.  I promise you, Donel, I will.  Grandma and Mike love you and truly will miss you.  I know you will REST IN PEACE because that’s how damned good you were to everybody son, you were.  Love you and miss you dearly Donel. Your Aunt Morgan and Uncle David, Aunt Ziggy and Macie Bubba, Aunt Jamie, and most of all our buddy, Dolores Hicks and Roman will miss you dearly.

Donel was preceded in death by his great grandfather, Donel Wheeler, great grandmother Joan Wheeler and grandfather Andy Demalade.
