COURTLAND – Ernest Keith Wheeler, 56, passed on May 17, 2023. A lost soul at peace. He was born Feb. 23, 1967 in Portsmouth, Virginia.

He was a carpenter by trade. He loved putting “lipstick on a pig.” He lived his life to the fullest. He endured many life changes throughout. He was the eighth child of all 10 siblings. He was a man of many words, mainly by choice. He fought a 2-year battle of cancer and he fought with everything he had but the good Lord took him to a better place, where he is pain free. A special lady in his life, Lisa, was dedicated, supportive and was by his side through it all. Special thanks to her

Wheeler and his daughter, Myriah Wheeler; four grandkids, Serenity Wheeler, Kyrum Wheeler, Brendon Wheeler and Ester Wheeler.
