Zachary D. Wheat

Zachary D. Wheat, 29, of Waterloo, IL, died July 21, 2022, comfortably at his home in Fults, IL. He was born April 23, 1993, in St. Louis, MO.

    He is survived by his fiancé Kelly R. Mehner; parents Steve and Mary Wheat nee Schreder; brother Avery Wheat; paternal grandmother Jean Wheat; furever friend Petey; many aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.

    Zachary was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents Michael H. and Delores Schreder; paternal grandfather David Wheat; and cousin Brent Roever.

    He was a FFA Alumni Lifetime Member and a member of Waterloo Sportsmans Club. He worked at WCUSD 5 in the Maintenance Department.

    He loved the outdoors and realized life's questions could always be answered by either fishing, hunting, or simply enjoying nature.

    To some he was a man of few words but to those that knew him best he always had an opinion to share. He was a hard worker and said he would rest when his time on earth was done. Throughout his cancer journey he always saw it as a hill to climb, even if he stumbled, he kept going. His strong, fighting spirit is what kept him going.

As an expression of sympathy the family prefers memorial contributions to: 
House of Neighborly Services or Family Wishes
