Mr. Wheeler was born September 27, 1932, in the Arcadia Community of Shelby County to John Edwin Wheeler and Cletis Goolsby Wheeler.  “Cotton”, as he was known, grew up a farmer’s son, planting and growing just about anything.  He had a great love for John Deere tractors.  Later, he joined the United States Air Force and worked as an aircraft mechanic.  This experience led him to a 35 year career with CRC Corporation.  He began there as a mechanic, then acquired his corporate pilot license, and went on to fly over 10,000 hours for the company. His hobbies included hunting, fishing, and spending time outdoors.  Given everything he was able to accomplish, his most prized accomplishment was his family.  Mr. Wheeler loved his family more than anything.


He is survived by his children, David Wheeler and wife Sheila of Willis, Debra Smith and husband Mark of Hockley; grandchildren, John Wheeler of Willis, Cameron Smith of Hockley, Regina Wheeler of Willis, Melissa Reed of Willis; great grandchildren, Olivia, D.J., Elaina, Jensen, Raegan, Madelyn, Rylan; sister, Fonda Burgay; nieces, Phyliss Griffin, Sharon Burgay; a host of other family and friends.

David Lamar Mooney, 77, of Live Oak, Texas, passed away on April 1, 2019 in San Antonio, Texas. He was born on August 26, 1941 in Center, Texas to Lawrence H. “Bob” Mooney and Lonita Carnahan Mooney. A graveside service will be at 10:30 AM on Friday, April 5, 2019 at Fairview Cemetery in Center, Texas with Linda Searcy officiating. 


David received his Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Texas at Austin before pursuing a career as a teacher. He also had a passion for the arts which carried him to another career in acting. His filmography is extensive from the 1970’s through the present. Some of his most notable films are The Baby, from 1973, Chaplain, from 1992, and most recently, My All-American, from 2015, as well as many television commercials.  David’s acting career allowed him the opportunity to become a member of the Screen Actors Guild. He continued working as a teacher as well for twenty years and even after retirement, he remained a substitute to stay connected to the students that he loved so much. David was a genuine, kind-hearted individual who never met a stranger. Every person he encountered during his life’s journey can speak of the positive memories David left with them. 


David is survived by his sister, Giovanna Mooney Searcy and brother-in-law, James L. Searcy, Sr.; nephew, James L. Searcy, Jr.; niece, Linda Searcy; great-nephews, Jason L. Searcy and Nathan M. Searcy; cousin, Susan Mooney Chrane and husband, Calvin; and a host of other family and friends.
