Laud Murphy Wheeler Jr.

Monday, March 12, 2012

Laud Murphy Wheeler Jr., son of Laud and Floy Wheeler, was born July 7, 1928. He passed away Feb. 25, 2012, in Montclair, Calif.

He was preceded in death by his parents and a sister, Elizabeth Ermert.

He leaves his wife, Lee; brother, David Wheeler, and wife, Jean.

He loved to hike in the mountains above Los Angeles and was an avid golfer. He took his vacation every year to play golf at the Sugar Creek Country Club in Piggott.

He looked forward to playing with Dr. Hillard Duckworth and Roy Whitfield and discussing his new swing with them. He spent 45 years improving that swing, with dubious results.

He will be greatly missed by friends in Piggott and Montclair.

Mr. Wheeler will be cremated, by his request, and his ashes will be spread in the mountains where he loved to hike.

No services were held.
