Zeeland, Michigan | Age 49


Bruce A. Sheets, age 49, passed away at home surrounded by family on Thursday, May 3, 2018 and is home in Heaven.

Bruce was an amazing husband and best friend to his wife, Gerrie; a great son, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, cousin, and friend to all who got to know him while he was here.

Bruce was an amazing man and did many wonderful things! Thank you for everything that you taught us all, from your wife and kids all the way to the strangers you had met. You touched each one of us in a very special way! We will never forget all of the fun times we had.

For your granddaughter - you were such a great papa! She loved you so much and she will always love you. We will make sure she knows you! Please watch over her as you are now her guardian angel.

Bruce served the Lord faithfully! We have no doubt that when he ran to Jesus, embraced him, the Lord said "Well done my good and faithful servant". Bruce - Have fun dancing and singing with the Lord and all of our relatives that you are able to see again.

You were far too young and we were supposed to have many years left with you. You will be dearly missed by many. We love you so much and miss you already!
