Obituary for Paul E. Wheeler
Paul E. Wheeler, 70, of Allendale, Illinois, passed away peacefully on Saturday, September 12, 2020 at his residence surrounded by the love of his family. He was born April 30, 1950 in Sumner, IL, the son of George Wheeler and Helen (Lucas) Green.  He married Glee Noland on September 7, 1975 and she survives.   Paul worked in maintenance and construction for many years at several power plants across the United States including Gibson Generating Station.  In his spare time he enjoyed fishing and spending time at his river camp where he and Glee, along with the help of their friends, built a cabin and enjoyed many gatherings with family and friends.  He enjoyed cooking, baking and frying fish.    Paul had a deep love for his family.  His daughter, granddaughters and great-granddaughter were his reason for living and they absolutely cherished him.  They often said he was the best Papaw there ever was.  Paul was also a very important part of many of his nieces, nephews and great-nieces and nephews lives.  To some of them he was like a second dad and often said, “Uncle Paul is the best”.  Paul made many friends everywhere.  His river buddies were an important part of who he was.  Paul dearly loved his in-law family as well.  They referred to him as “Pauly” and always knew they could count on him for anything.  Paul’s love and friendship was cherished by many and he will be dearly missed.   Paul will be remembered by his loving wife of forty-five years, Glee; daughter, Melissa Thompson; grandchildren, Chloey Wheeler, Taylor Cates, Tiahanna Berry; great-granddaughter, Ayanna Cates; brother, Jerry Wheeler, sisters, Ruby Wiles, Beverly Wheeler and many loved nieces and nephews. Paul was preceded in death by his parents; brothers, Daryl, George, Jim, Donnie and Kenny Wheeler; sister, Carolyn Wheeler. In Keeping with Paul’s wishes, cremation rites will take place and a Memorial Service will take place at a later date.   Keepes Funeral Home is serving the family with the arrangements.  To view Paul’s  tribute wall, purchase flowers and leave condolences for the Wheeler family, please visit
