Scheper William cropWillem (William) Scheper

April 4, 1951 - January 30, 2017

William Scheper, survived by his loving wife, Ricki, five children: Jeffrey, Leanne, Gaylene, Garrick and Tyler (spouses) and twenty-two grandchildren. 

William was born and raised in Holland. While there he apprenticed as an electrician. He came to Canada in 1967 at 16. Soon after that he entered the building trade with his future father in law, Lefert Meijer, and did so for 13 years. He married Ricki in 1972. The family moved to Alberta in 1980, and again to Ontario in 1987. Along the way, many joys and sorrows, but eventually back to Manitoba in 2007.

William loved to build houses, from top to bottom, pretty much by himself. He also enjoyed building cabinets in his shop. Lots of drop ins there for coffee and a chat. This was his life until six weeks ago.

William was a quiet man. He had a special way with kids. They gravitated to him. He kept the family grounded with his kindness, patience and humor. 

His faith in God sustained him through his final days. He is gone from us, but the love and the memories are ours to keep.
