He loved The Beatles, lighthouses, and the No. 7 train to Sunnyside, Queens.
Benjamin Andrew Wheeler departed this life on Friday, Dec. 14, 2012 at the Sandy Hook Elementary School. He was 6 years old. (see stories below)
Benjamin was born in New York City on Sept. 12, 2006, a son of David Cole and Francine (Lobis) Wheeler.
Ben was an irrepressibly bright and spirited boy whose love of fun and excitement at the wonders of life and the world could rarely be contained. His rush to experience life was headlong, creative and immediate.
He was a devoted fan of his older brother, Nate, and the two of them together filled the house with the noise of four children.
He loved the local soccer program, often running across the field long after it was actually necessary, but always smiling and laughing as he moved the ball nearly always at full tilt.
