MARICOPA — John Louis Scheeler, 64, of Chicago died on Aug. 7, 2019, in Maricopa, surrounded by his wife and family.
Mr. Scheeler was born in Chicago on March 2, 1955. He proudly served in the Navy for four years beginning in 1977. He was an avid Beatles and Chicago Bears fan.
He loved holidays and would go all out to make those days special for his family, setting up many lights and decorations for Halloween and Christmas. That tradition is being kept alive by his children. He was known for his contagious laughter and "silly dad jokes" that the family couldn't help but repeat. He had a kind and loving soul and taught his children how to love and appreciate family.
Survivors include his wife of 36 years, Karen; a son, Ronnie Scheeler; two daughters, Laura Young and Caron Scheeler; and four grandchildren. He was preceded in death by Mary and Mary Rita Scheeler.
