A Fond Farewell To Clarence Wheeler

Clarence Wheeler, who retired in 1995 as maintenance supervisor for the park's West Side, passed away on March 7th after a long-fought battle against cancer. Clarence began working at Pinnacles in 1976 after a 21-year career with the military.

Clarence is survived by his wife, Kathe, daughter, Agnete, and a grandson and granddaughter. Services will be held at 11 a.m. on March 10th at the Struve and Laporte Funeral Chapel in Salinas. Letters to the family may be sent to Kathe Wheeler, 104 Hawthorne Street, Salinas, CA 93901. [Debbie Simons, PINN]
