Daniel "Dan" J. Wheeler

Dan Wheeler passed away Wednesday January 11, 2012. Dan was the brother in law and friend to one our Cornerstone Funeral Home Family, J. Michael Woodlief.  Dan and Mike have had a close friendship for over thirty years. They first began as room mates, working together and even married to sisters, Donna and Janet. Mike and Dan's next adventure along with Dan's brother Scott in 1999 open Wheeler and Woodlief Funeral Home. Hence where the name Wheeler and Woodlief came from. Mike later left and a few years later became a member of the Cornerstone Funeral Home Family. Many of our staff has worked with Dan and know him on a personally level. He will be truly missed. Our prayers and thoughts are with Dan's Family. Our family here also want's to send our prayers to our co-worker and friend Mike as he says good-bye to an old dear friend. May God be with you at this time.

The family will receive friends from 7 to 8:30 pm Saturday, January 14, 2012 at Wheeler and Woodlief Funeral Home and other times at the home. Funeral services will be held at 2 pm Sunday, January 15, 2012 in the chapel of Wheeler and Woodlief Funeral Home with the Rev. Keith Griffin and Dr. Chet Rains officiating. Burial will follow at Rocky Mount Memorial Park.
Dan will be missed.  He was a kind and considerate person and it was indeed a pleasure to have known and worked with Dan.  

My prayers are with the family and while it will never be easier, adjustment will be difficult.
