Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Sheets family during this time. Mr. Sheets was my favorite teacher during my middle school years. He opened doors to a world of technology to all of his students, and he will be greatly missed

We were so sorry to hear about the passing of Mr. Sheets. I had the great honor of working with him at Stewart Middle School as a custodian. He was a great man. He really knew how to treat people with respect and love. My heart felt love and respect go out to his children, and sister. May God be with you all in your time of sorrow.

Dear Sheets Family,
Eddie has been a part of our lives for approximately 50 years. It is difficult to believe that he is now in God's presence. Yet we still have all the memories of life at Tech, raising children together, life at Summit church, the many vacations our families shared, and our social events. Yes, we will miss him, but eternal life with God is the best of all.

To Eddie's Children:

We remember your father first as a little boy when we used to get eggs from his parents. Then we remember Eddie as a young man who graduated from high school with our son Ernie. We always thought so much of him and are sorry for this loss his family and our community are enduring. The Lord is with us now and always.
