I had the privilege of knowing and working with Mr. Sheeder at Lake Junior High. I worked in the office and sometimes had lunch in the faculty lounge with staff. What I remember the most was how highly he spoke of his wife and family. He was one of the most respected staff members. My deepest condolences and my prayers are with his family.

To all the Sheeders
What a family to carry the memory of Jim. Many thanks to the family, you kept me in education at Hodgkins Jr High. A high bar was set!

No words can ease the pain of your loss. But great memories will help you through the hard times.
My father (Al DeRemer) worked with Jim at Lake Middle School. I remember him speaking highly of Jim and the great times.
Our prayers are with your family.
