St, Thomas, V.I.

Steuart Hilary Wheatley was born in St. Thomas, Virgin
Islands on March 18, 1954 to Angel and Calvin Wheatley.
He attended the All Saints Cathedral School until the eighth
grade at which time he transferred to the Charlotte Amalie
High School, from which he graduated in June, 1971.

He enlisted in the United States Air Force in 1974 and
served four years at various locations in the United States.

After returning home to St. Thomas, Steuart worked as
an electrician before joining the U.S. Postal Service with
which he was employed at the time of his demise.

Steuart is survived by his wife, Dorn, his daughter, Tesa,
his mother and father; sisters Roxanne and Luana; brothers

Steuart enjoyed many interests, including fishing, basket-

meet a large number of people. All who knew him feel that
we are better people for having known him. His unselfish-
ness was, and will continue to be, an inspiration and example
by which we should all live our lives. We, his family, all love
him immensely and will miss him more each passing day.

IN APPRECIATION We appreciate your attendance at this
memorial service. Because of the circumstances related to Steuart's
passing, the members of the family would like to retire by themselves
after this service. Thank you.
