As a passionate advocate for the growth of sports in Minnesota, Wheelock played a role in the success of every professional franchise, including the Minnesota Vikings. During his tenure as team owner and president, he helped the Vikings develop deeper connections to the fans and become further ingrained in the state.
While his impact on sports was evident, Wheelock was also successful in his business, political and philanthropic endeavors. He cared about his home state in every way and represented Minnesotans with class.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Wheelock's family.
-Zygi Wilf, Vikings Owner / Chairman
