Noah Bolin Wheeler, 61, passed away November 8, 2005, in Dallas, Texas. He was born October 23, 1944, in Broken Bow, the son of Robert V. and Frances Bernice Wheeler.

Buddy attended school in Broken Bow until moving to Dallas in his teens where he enjoyed playing football for North Dallas High School. He and Linda were avid bowlers for many years with the American Indian Bowling League. They spent many hours traveling with friends to bowling tournaments in Texas and Oklahoma.

Buddy was a Cowboys fan. In the early years, it was sitting in the cold and rain of the Cotton Bowl, suffering through the heartbreaking losses of Next Year’s Champions and in the ’70s, celebrating the victories of the Super Bowl years in Texas Stadium.

Buddy became a NASCAR fan in his later years, collecting model race cars of his favorite drivers, Dale Earnhardt and Dale Jr. You would find him in front of the TV whenever the races were on.

Before his passing, with the help of the Rev. Arge Brockles, pastor of the NorthLake Baptist Church in Dallas, Buddy rekindled his faith and made his peace with the Lord.

His parents preceded him in death.

Survivors include his wife of 41 years, Linda Bernice Wheeler; two sons, David and Bruce Wheeler; two grandchildren, Nicole and Bobby Wheeler; longtime friends, Charles and Ruby Coleman, Ardis and Alene Mose, Linda Alexander; numerous nieces and nephews, other relatives and a host of friends.
