Mansfield, Ohio

MANSFIELD: Paul Sheehe, 88, of Mansfield passed away, at home, Saturday May 30, 2021.

The son of Paul and Velma (Volk) Sheehe, Paul was born September 6, 1932 in Leesville, Ohio at his grandparent’s house, on the kitchen table!

Paul attended Howard High School, and later completed his GED.  A proud military veteran, he served aboard the USS Rio Grande AOG-3 and L59 711 Ford County in the U.S. Navy.  Paul’s active duty status spanned from 1952-1956 and inactive status from 1956-1960.  On February 2, 1956 he married Delores Aplin.  The two celebrated 65 years together.

Paul worked for General Motors as a die setter, retiring after 36 ½ years.

He lived to fish, spending much of his time at the Delaware Dam, fishing for croppy and bass with his good friend Carl Blankenship.  Paul also had a keen eye for antiques.  Attending local auctions he would buy, sell, and refinish antiques.

Well loved by church family, he was a member at Cornerstone Grace Brethren Church.  Paul served as greeter and volunteered many hours assisting with building maintenance.

He is survived by his devoted spouse Delores Sheehe of Mansfield; children Susan (Larry) Foster of Mansfield and Beth (Glen) Swandt of Wisconsin; grandson Michael Hampton; siblings Margaret Poland of Mt. Vernon, Helen Caldwell of Mt. Vernon, Sandra McBride of Mansfield, and Dorothy (Leonard) McBride of Mansfield; best friends Carl Blankenship and family and “son” Rick Sanchez.

He was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents Bert and Bessie Volk; parents Paul and Velma Sheehe; siblings Mary Alice Farnsworth, Malcolm Sheehe, Shirley Brumenshenkle, Jerry Thomas Sheehe, Rosemary Acorn, and Peggy Green.

A memorial service celebrating the life of Paul Sheehe will be held Thursday, June 10, 2021 at 11am in the Lexington Avenue Snyder Funeral Home where his family will receive friends the hour prior, from 10am – 11am.  Private graveside services with military honors will be held in Mansfield Cemetery.
