Ben Scott Wheaton, faithful son of Gertrude Wheaton and much-loved brother of Judy (Wheaton) Gillis, passed away on Monday, February 24, 2020 at the age of 65. Ben also leaves behind his sons, Benjamin (38) and Joseph (30) and their children. Ben was pre-deceased by his dad, Herman Wheaton.
Grieving his loss are also his brother-in-law, Neil and special kinfolk, Dale and Becky Shannon and family, as well as several members of the Main Street Baptist Church.
Ben felt deeply and passionately about everything. There was a tenderness, a vulnerability to him that he tried to hide behind a “tough guy” exterior, but the real Ben was kind, caring, loyal and generous- often to his own hurt. Words cannot express how deeply we feel his loss nor how very much we will miss his quick wit, his beautiful songs and his new-found excitement in his relationship with his Creator.
