Frank Wheeler's Obituary

Frank Wheeler was the first of the four founders to leave the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, and, four years later, was the first to pass away. Suffering from diabetes for years, his health deterriorated rapidly in the last few months of his life. A wound to his foot stubbornly refused to heal, and he increasingly became despondent over his perdicament. A proud man, he elected to take his life using his favorite shotgun. This obituary goes beyond the circumstances of his passing to provide useful information about the life of the most mysterious of the four founders.
