Wheeler, Floyd J.

Floyd J. Wheeler, 87, died on Friday, May 26, 2017 peacefully at home with his wife by his side. Floyd was born in Wichita Falls, Texas, the son of Ralph and Ida Wheeler. He spent much of his younger life in Roswell, and Carlsbad, New Mexico.

He met and married Bobbie Jean Savage, the daughter of Reverend Kenzy and Ester Savage of Roswell, and they were married in April of 1950 at the Assembly of God Church. The couple moved to Albuquerque in 1960 when Floyd went to work for Public Service Company of New Mexico, where he retired after 30 years of service. He finished his career with PNM in Gallup, New Mexico, and enjoyed being called Flavio Begay from Window Rock.

Floyd was an avid hunter and shooter, and was very active in the New Mexico Gun Collectors Association. Floyd had a passion for animals, and owned many dogs in his life. He was generous to a fault, and very devoted to his family. He touched many people, and we will all miss hearing his stories.

He was preceded in death by his parents, his beloved daughter, Janice (Wheeler) Trujillo, and his brother, Loyd N. Wheeler.

He is survived by his wife of 67 years, Bobbie (Savage) Wheeler; his daughter, Nancy Whitlow, and husband Gary; his sister, Betty Herbel, and husband David; his brother, Jerry Wheeler, and wife Deborah; six grandchildren, five great grandchildren, as well as many nieces, nephews, and close friends.
