    I’m so sorry for your families loss. Sheldon was an amazing man with such a kind heart! I will never forget our times in Bisco, especially at the Bisco Disco dancing up a storm and where you taught me how to play shuffle board. He truly was the life of the party and just made me feel so welcome, I loved his sense of humor and still find myself laughing at some of his shenanigans. He will forever hold a special place in my heart and i will cherish the memories forever. ♡ Rest Easy Sheldon. XOXO

    Sheldon was a long-time friend of our family and a real landmark around Bisco, who touched the lives of a goodly number of people. We have fond memories of good conversation at camp a generosity of spirit, a hard work ethic, and a twinkle in the eyes sense of humor. Sheldon had an infectious joy of living, a kindness of spirit, and an open door. He was a perennial gentleman, and we will miss him. Deepest condolences to the wide circle of family and friends he leaves behind.
