I had known Joe for about 14 years through CMC, he was always a great guy, always asking how my day was going and always interested in what project we had going. He was very knowledgeable and passionate about his work. Joe you will be missed my friend! Rest in Peace.

I HAD THE PLEASURE OF HAVING " JOE " WHEELER AS A MODEL EMPLOYEE FROM 1994 UNTIL I RETIRED IN 2004. A NICE PERSON WITH HONESTY AND A WITTY ATTITUDE WERE A FEW TRAITS THAT DESCRIBE JOE. HE WILL BE A VERY HARD PERSON TO BE REPLACED AT CMC SUPPLY. OWNERS, EMPLOYEES , CUSTOMERS , AND FRIENDS WHO KNEW JOE WERE PRIVILEGED TO HAVE KNOWN HIM. I AS WELL AS ALL WHO KNEW JOE WILL MISS HIM HERE ON EARTH .PRAYERS GO OUT TO HIS FAMILY IN THIS TIME OF GRIEF .
