After a protracted battle with cancer, Steven “Bumpy” Sheets, 64, passed away peacefully in his home, surrounded by loved ones on October 19th at 8:35 P.M. Born on March 29th, 1951, he leaves behind many cherished memories as a wonderful father, generous friend and all around great person.

Born in St. Albans VT, he was predeceased by his parents, George A. Sheets Jr. and Elaine M. Sheets. He was raised in Swanton, Vermont where he became a true craftsman. A man of many talents, Bumpy was admired by many for his ability to create; there was nothing he could not build if he put his mind to it, from kayak’s to houses, creating was his passion. He served as a Glazier at Saint Michael’s College for over a decade; he will be missed greatly by the SMC community.

He is survived by his two sons, Dylan Sheets and his wife Jenna Sheets and Willy Sheets, his companion Carol Egan and her children Erin Potvin and Thomas, Isabel, and Annie Mora and the Bohannon family of Alburgh, VT.

He was loved by all those whose life he was a part of, and he will be missed dearly by many. Please come honor his memory with us this Friday, shoes will be optional.

Friends may call at The Kidder Memorial Home, 89 Grand Avenue, Swanton on Friday, October 23, 2015, from 3 to 5 p.m. a short prayer service will end the afternoon at 5 p.m. with Fr. Brian J. Cummings, SSE and Fr. Marcel R. Rainville, SSE officiating.

Gifts in Bumpy’s memory may be made to the American Legion, Creller-Landon Post 60, 35 N. Main St. Alburgh 05440.
