DeSales Alumna Loses Son in Sandy Hook Shooting

A DeSales University graduate lost her son in Friday’s school shooting in Connecticut.

According to the Express-Times, Fran Lobis-Wheeler’s son, Benjamin, 6, died in the attack. Lobis-Wheeler is a member of the former Allentown College -- now DeSales University -- class of 1989.

According to a story from New Haven-based News 8, Lobis-Wheeler and her husband, David, had recently moved to Newtown, CT from New York City. The story says their son Nate, also a student at Sandy Hook, survived the attack.

A memorial page, Friends of Benjamin Wheeler, has been set up on Facebook.
