David G. Wiley, age 83, of Chillicothe, passed away on Monday, June 12, 2023 at Methodist Medical Center in Peoria.

Surviving are his wife, Jeanette; his children, Doug (Diana) Wiley of Chillicothe and Don (Shelly) Wiley, also of Chillicothe; his brother, Jackie L. Wiley of Columbia, Missouri; his sister-in-law, Harriett Moore of Joliet; his brother-in-law, Charles Adams of Keller, Texas; his brother-in-law Albert (Anita) Adams of Chillicothe; his brother-in-law, Rick Adams of Chillicothe; his sister-in-law, Fran Adams of Pekin; and his 7 grandchildren: Heather (Josh) Benway of Chillicothe, Stacey (John) Fischer of Washington, Lindsey (Mike) Citchens of Germantown Hills, Ryan Wiley of Chicago, Derek Wiley of Chillicothe, Jordan (Eyba) Wiley of Chillicothe, and Kaelyn Wiley of Chillicothe.

David worked for Graves Chevrolet and Wabco.  David retired as a machinist from Kempf Manufacturing after 25 years.  In addition to his career at Kempf Manufacturing, David spent his time as a volunteer for Rescue 33 Ambulance service.  He joined the volunteer squad in 1981 and served for 25+ years where he was awarded as a lifetime member.  David was also an avid Chicago Cubs fan and enjoyed his time spent on his Monday night bowling league.  He was a member of the Church of Christ in East Peoria. 

David will be missed by family and friends as he was always an involved member of the community.  He coached his sons in little league and never missed an opportunity to cheer on his grandchildren in their activities, serving as their number one fan.  David was honest and hard-working, offering nuggets of wisdom in all his conversations. 

Services will be held on Friday, June 16, 2023 at 12pm at Weber-Hurd Funeral Home in Chillicothe with visitation beginning at 10am.  Burial will follow at Chillicothe City Cemetery.  Memorials in his name may be made to the Church of Christ in East Peoria.
