Charles Ralph Wheat

Charles Ralph Wheat, 74, of Vidor, passed away Tuesday, June 23, 2015. He was a native resident of Vidor but was lead to move to Lufkin in 1985. After many rewarding years in running a family owned business, he moved back to Vidor to be closer to family. He loved people! If he joked with you, he liked you. Not only was he a man of great character he was a man lead by his faith. He knew the Bible back and forth. He read it daily and taught it to anyone willing to listen for a moment. His love of God was expressed in every word. He had a faithful loving wife, Jean, who followed him wherever he was lead to go. Even if it lead them to the Trade Days. In their later years, they enjoyed selling peanuts, Louisiana cane syrup, jellies and jams across the circuit. He met a lot of friends, told a lot of jokes and spread the word of God as often as he could. He was loved by many but cherished by those who called him husband, Dad, and PawPaw most!
