Dr. Bruce Wheeler was a client of our company, Davidson Consulting, Inc., for many years. Bruce's brother, John Wheeler, was our contact and handled all of the business aspects for Dr. Wheeler. We could instantly tell how much John loved his brother by the way John handled Bruce's business affairs. The sibling bond was very strong.The entire time my mother-in-law was in Land Mark Nursing Home, Dr. Wheeler was my mother-in-law's doctor. He was a very compassionate and caring doctor for which will be eternal grateful for his loving care for her. Dr. Wheeler has a reputation among the staff of LandMark as a very competent, caring, and loving doctor towards his patients. His patients will definitely miss Dr. Wheeler! This world is a better place because of Dr. Bruce Wheeler!

Bruce was one of my best friends that I would trust with my life. Good thing because he saved that with dx my breast cancer. He drove to Monroe especially to tell me the dx but he couldn’t at first. He put his arms around me and he cried through telling me and apologizing the whole time we were close for years and he never failed to help me with anything I needed to take care of his patients and my family. I loved him a long time and always will. Everyone should have the opportunity to have a Bruce Wheeler for their personal doctor and friend. Love you always Dr Bruce Wheeler. I would love to be with you while you take this last journey but I understand the family wishing for a private service.

Rebecca Norton left a message on October 7, 2019:
Bruce was my very good friend for more than 40 years.We first worked together when he came out of Med school at Sterlington Hospital and I was the 11/7 RN. He was always ready to lend and ear and a word of encouragement in some very trying times in my life. . To his patients through the years I have NEVER seen him Not take time to listen to them. I miss him already but I know he is glad to see his family he loved so much. To Ryan and the babies, your Dad and papaw adored you all. Every time we talked he was bragging on you. He was sooo proud of you. Mr Joe and the rest of the family he cherished the time he spent with you. We use to talk about the Spencer Jamboree and the music he loved so much. God Bless you all and Give you comfort as you go through this difficult time. You will continue in my prayers.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.
