Theodore Allen Scheid, 71, passed away unexpectedly Thursday, Jan. 3, 2019, in Rose City.

He was born July 15, 1947, in Big Rapids to Allen and Virginia (Hagley) Scheid. Ted lived in Rose City since 2013, formerly of Sterling. On Feb. 23, 1974, he married Debra Barber at St. John’s Catholic Church in Standish. He was in the U.S. Army during Vietnam and served in Thailand. He was an automotive machinist at Carquest in Bay City for 40 years and enjoyed woodworking, fishing, going to garage sales and working on cars and tractors. Ted also enjoyed repurposing items to sell and most of all spending time with his family. He was always helping people with anything they needed and he could fix almost anything.

Ted is survived by his loving wife of almost 45 years, Debbie Scheid of Rose City; children, Chris (Karie) Scheid of Iowa, Nicole (Steven) Gerrish of Florida and TJ (Kate) Scheid of Virginia; grandchildren, Nicholas, Caitlin, Nathan, Noah and Cameron; brother-in-law, George (Dorothy) Barber of Bay City; many nieces, nephews and great-nieces and -nephews; and best friend, Nicki, “his girl.”

He was preceded in death by his parents.

Per Ted’s wishes, cremation has taken place. There will be a celebration of life Mass at a later date.

Memorial contributions can be made to wishes of the family or the Ogemaw County Humane Society.

Arrangements were handled by Steuernol & McLaren Funeral Home in West Branch,
