Walt passed away peacefully in his sleep on the morning of February 28, 2023. He was born in Ogden on July 10, 1934, to Alexander and Florence Wheelwright. He is survived by Carole, his loving wife of 68 years. Walt and Carole raised their family in Roy. Walt leaves behind his four children and their families: Keith & Cindy Wheelwright, Diane & John Hollberg, Jason & Stacy Wheelwright and Lynne & Bob McAdoo. Walt was an honest, hard-working man who loved his wife and children unconditionally. Walt loved woodworking, fishing and camping. He never hesitated to help a friend.
Walt did not want a funeral. A private gathering for family and friends will be held at a later date. Celebrate his life by spending time with your family or friends.
In lieu of flowers, please give to your favorite charity, help a friend, or spend a few extra minutes of your time with your family.
