Henry served as a director on the NOMMA
board several times and was a member of the Site Selection Committee. He
also spent 30 years volunteering for the
National Association of Architectural Metal
Manufacturers (NAAMM), and he helped

them to develop
their librar y of
technical manuals.
During his free time, Henry enjoyed sailing and held positions with several sailing
clubs. He is survived by his children Henry

(Dan Sr.) Ferrise, and Peter Bills, plus 7
grandchildren. Services for Henry took place
on January 14 at the Pagenkopf Funderal

Henry Wheeler: In Loving Memory
the loss of our
friend and colleague Henry Wheeler, who
passed at age 66. Mr. Henry Allen Wheeler
died peacefully and is now home with the Lord
on Saturday, February 18, 2017. He was 66.
Mr. Wheeler was a member of Memphis

Wheeler Ornamental Metals where he started
working with his Dad at an early age. He did
beautiful work all over the country. He was
a former Cub Master of the Boy Scouts of
America, past member of the Dothan Rotary
Club, former member of Mason Scottish Rite and
served on NOMMA's Board. Henry was a past
NOMMA director, past chair of the NOMMA
Accreditation Committee, and a highly active
member of the Gulf Coast NOMMA Network. He
had a great enthusiasm for NOMMA and rarely
missed a METALfab event or chapter meeting.
He enjoyed Antique Cars, fishing at the
Everglades and Alabama "Roll Tide." He was
a wonderful Husband, Dad and Opa. It's not
going to be easy saying goodbye to someone
who is loved so much. He had the biggest heart
and would do just about anything for anyone. His
children and grandchildren were the light of his

for them even when he felt his worse. He also
