KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. — Steven Lloyd Sheasby, 61, passed away unexpectedly on Dec. 15, 2016. He was born May 25, 1955, at Mercy Hospital in Mount Vernon, to Lloyd and Doris Sheasby. Steve was an excellent student, winning the Knox County eighth grade spelling bee, was honored to be one of the Danville all-stars, and was chosen by the faculty members for Who’s Who among high school seniors. He was a 1973 graduate of Danville High School in Danville, as well as a 1977 graduate of the College of Wooster. During his high school and college careers, Steve excelled in multiple sports, most notably as a linebacker on the football teams. He was a member of Phi Delta Sigma and maintained many lifelong friendships. In 2012, with 35 years of service, he retired from Jeld-Wen as a senior vice president of the Canadian division. His position allowed him to travel extensively throughout the country and the relationships he cultivated created some of his fondest memories. In addition to being an avid Ohio State Buckeye and Danville Blue Devil fan, Steve enjoyed barbecuing, wine pairing, golfing, fishing, hunting and spending time with his family.
Steve is survived by his dearly loved family, wife Julie and their blended family of sons Tyler, Edward, John and Wyatt, daughter Sarah, and grandchildren; mother Doris Sheasby; brother Mark (Pamela) Sheasby; and several nieces, nephews and cousins. He was preceded in death by his son, AJ; father Lloyd Sheasby; maternal grandparents Ralph and Eva Body; and paternal grandparents Burt and Fannie Sheasby.
