Wheele, 63 of Valparaiso, passed away peacefully July 7, 2017.  He was born January 17, 1954 in Hammond, IN to the late Emory and Betty (Columbo) Wheele.  John worked as a forklift mechanic at Worthington Steel in Porter for over 20 years.  He enjoyed fishing, working on model aircrafts, and watching anything about World War II on the History Channel.  John will be remembered by those who knew him as a hardworking, selfless man who never lost his wonderful sense of humor.  John is survived by his son, Ryan (Rachel) Wheele; granddaughters: Alexandria, Sidney, Madelyne; brothers: Joe (Wilma) Wheele, Tom (Barb) Wheele, Henry (Lucia) Wheele, and Michael Wheele.  He was preceded in death by his son, Daniel Wheele, and sister, Julie Wheele.
