Was John an iron worker ever?

No – a jewelry maker, bike messenger, tour guide…

Thank you Jim Ansbro. I think. I’m not sure if you are being serious
I know a John Wheeler that was an Ironworker ~ 30 years ago. I guess I should say I knew him. Who knows, he might have changed careers
Rest In Peace John Wheeler
