My condolences to the Wheat family members. Bob and I worked together in District 228 for many years. He was the superintendent, and I was a teacher. However, over the years during his tenure and during his retirement, I progressed through the ranks to become superintendent. Many times, I used Bob's examples when I was in that position. I appreciated his skills and talents more as I gained experience. He and his work are a large part of the history of District 228.
