NOMMA grieves the loss of Henry Wheeler of Wheeler Ornamental Metals, Dothan, AL. Henry passed suddenly on Saturday, Feb. 18.
Henry was a past NOMMA director, past chair of the NOMMA Accreditation Committee, and a highly active member of the Gulf Coast NOMMA Network. He had a great enthusiasm for NOMMA and rarely missed a METALfab event or chapter meeting.
My fondest memory of Henry is when we drove together to the Florida Chapter meeting in Tampa, FL. We spent many hours in the car together driving through a remote part of Florida and I enjoyed getting to know him. I learned about the incredible passion he had for both metalwork and his family. He particularly adored his wife Vickki and I found their close relationship inspiring.
Visitation is Tuesday, 6-8 and the funeral will be Wednesday, 2 p.m. Both events will take place at the Memphis Baptist Church, 4595 Eddins Rd., Dothan, AL 36301. More details to come.
