David Wheeler Memorial

In Memoriam – Telling the Bees


David Wheeler, one of the oldest beekeepers in Greene County and a long-time supporter of the Greene County Beekeepers Association, passed away on April 1, 2018.

In lieu of flowers, the Wheeler family suggests that memorial contributions be made to the Greene County Beekeepers in David’s memory. Contributions will support GCBA’s ongoing efforts to educate, train, and advocate for beekeepers in Greene County.

In order to connect the past generation of beekeeping to the new generation, GCBA will also be naming it’s 2019 and 2020 4-H sponsorship program the “David Wheeler Memorial Sponsorship.” This program will be awarded to a deserving Greene County 4-H member who undertakes  the Ohio 4-H Beekeeping Project. (Details on the sponsorship program are available here.)
