    Kevin, Stacy, Kathy, Sandy and Becky… Your Dad was one of the finest people I have had the pleasure to know. While it is hard to let them go, you all will take comfort knowing he and your Mom are walking on the streets of Gold forever! Lifting you all up in prayer!

    As I watch three otters play in our river in Boulder Junction I realize I can’t text my friend Jack to tell him about it. I have shared many moments like this with him by text in recent years from Up North and he usually responded “Living the dream!” I just told Teresa that I will be sad when I catch my first muskie that I won’t be able to tell him. She smiled and said, oh he will know. I loved your dad and I will truly miss him.

    • Bill and Sheri McCormick July 14, 2022 at 10:44 am

      We will miss our dear friend, Jack, as we have missed Connie. They were an amazing couple and we cherished the friendship we had with them. Jack was an inspiration in his faith and his spirit of service. Prayers for the family.

    Grieving for us all as we lament Jack’s passing, BUT celebrating his homecoming with Jesus! What a magnificent hope we have in Christ! (And Jack is certainly basking in the words, “Well done, good and faithful servant.” )

    Very sorry to hear about the passing of my cousin Jack Scheid. What a wonderful man he was! He certainly lived a long and active life. Lots of great memories of him, Connie and their children! Last time I saw him, he pointed out that we were the 2 oldest living cousins. I am now the oldest cousin in the family. Some “very big shoes to fill”!

  6. Corrine Hampton July 14, 2022 at 10:39 am

    To the Family & Friends
    Jack will forever be Loved & missed he was very Kind, Loving, Spiritual & Warm Hearted. He will forever ring in my ears with so many things that he said, one of which is CoCo, you’ll catch more flies with sugar than you will with vinegar… “true indeed”. To his wonderful & loving kids, thanks so much for letting me be a part of Jack’s life, Love CoCo

    Jack was such a great man, he was always so pleasant and always interested in what others were doing. Not many people care enough to stop and have conversations but Jack did. Anytime we came back from the mission field Jack would have questions about what he had read or seen in a newsletter or social media; he was one of our prayer warriors. Jack always brought a smile to our face because he was always smiling, truly a happy soul who loves Jesus and his neighbor (even around the world) as himself. His reception in Heaven was a grand affair!

  8. Susie Plunkitt July 14, 2022 at 10:54 am

    What a great guy! He will be missed by many. Praise God for Jack’s life!

    Deepest sympathy for the family.

  10. Rick and Tanny Irwin July 14, 2022 at 4:55 pm

    So sorry to hear about Jack. I worked for Jack for several years. He wasn’t only a great boss, but a wonderful human being. It was one of the greatest times of my life and my wife also. The family was always so nice and made you feel like part of the family. Thoughts and prayers to all the family. Now he can be with his wonderful wife. Rest in peace Jack.

    Prayers for his family at this difficult time.

  12. Bill Riggs July 14, 2022 at 9:35 pm

    I had the pleasure of speaking with Jack on a few occasions at Kevin and Diana’s home at Wawasee. He was a true gentlemen and a pleasure to be around. As a young man and a friend of his grandson, it is hard to fathom what he has seen in his life, good and bad. I consider myself lucky to have been able to share good conversation and company with a man who means so much to so many. My personal belief is that you’re never gone when you pass, you just stay with us in a different way. My love to the Family. Cheers, Jack.

    What a great family…Frankfort’s finest. Jack and Connie were simply the best role models you could pick. To all the kids, you’re proud of your parents, and you should be!!!! They are the best of our home town, and make me proud to be a Hotdog!

    Jack and his wife Connie were both very loving people. They hosted me during State Junior Miss in Frankfort and shared their home and family graciously! They did amazing things for their community.
