Joseph "Wheeler" Houser Obituary


Joseph M. "Wheeler"  Houser, age 66, of rural Mendon, passed away at his home on Sunday, January 28, 2024.  

He was born June 9, 1957, in St. Marys, to James D. Houser and Thelma A. (Sampson) Houser, who are both deceased.

"Wheeler", as he was known by many, was a father, friend, brother, and grandpa.  He leaves behind his son, Joey Houser of Mendon, and ten grandchildren.  Also surviving is his life partner, Tammy Houser, and six brothers and sisters: Rick (Debbie) Sampson of Forest, OH, Patrick Houser and Daniel (Shyla) Houser of Mendon, Deb (Jim) Dotson of Pensacola, FL, Lynn (Roger) Sell of Rockford, and Shirley Dicke of Mendon.    

Joe was preceded in death by his parents and two brothers: Dennis Houser and Terry Houser.

After attending Mendon-Union High School, Joe later received his GED.  A "Jack of All Trades", Wheeler could do most anything.  Over the years, he worked as a mechanic, carpenter, and entrepreneur.  He also worked on oil wells and in construction.

A big man with a big heart, Wheeler loved the outdoors.  He was known for his love of hunting mushrooms in the springtime, crappie fishing, and for making the best flavored moonshine around. 

Wheeler was a beloved member and current President of the St. Marys Chapter of the Barbarians Motorcycle Club.  He dearly loved his Biker family. 

He will be in our hearts forever, and missed by all who knew him.
