March 27, 2017 Dear Sally, Marie, Scott, Sue and families, I am so terribly saddened by the news of Bob's passing! One of my most favourite people in the whole world, Bob (and indeed ALL of you) have been such a treasured part of my life's history and to know how close you all were, it breaks my heart to know how devastating this loss is for you! That patriotic red, white & blue dingy that hung in the garage on Regency St., that he was so proud of; Bob refinishing one thing or another in the driveway; his constant joking and light-hearted teasing; his gentle and giving kindness- all just a teardrop of wonderful memories I have of Bob! Of course no farewell would be complete without a standing-tall and respectful salute with hearty "Aye, aye, Sir!" to the Captain of Gameutlicheit! Smooth sailing for you now, Bob, but not a dry eye on land! Thinking of you all, with love and a sincerely heavy heart, Tanis

Sorry for the loss of your family member. Death is never easy to deal with. May you find comfort in the scripture at 1 Corinthians 15:26. There it says death will be brought to nothing.

My condolences to the Scheuermann Family on the passing of your loved one. May Jehovah God grant you his peace while you await his promise at Revelation 21;4( he will wipe out pain, sorrow, sickness and death). Please know that his promises do not fail. See www.jw.org for more promised.

Robert (Bob) Lansing Scheuermann, age 88, passed away on March 23, 2017, surrounded by his loving family, at St Joseph’s Hospital in Savannah. Born and raised in Elizabeth, NJ, he proudly served in the US Army Military Police Corps for two years in Okinawa, Japan. He received a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from Lafayette College, where he was Salutatorian, Swim Team Captain, Class Vice President and elected to Phi Beta Kappa. He holds a Master of Engineering from the Newark College of Engineering.

He met the light of his life, Marie, in the summer of 1949 when they worked together in Point Pleasant, NJ. They married in 1953, raised their three children, Scott, Susan and Sally, and shared a wonderful life together for 63 years.

Bob enjoyed a successful 32-year career at Exxon Research and Engineering Company where he managed the development of petroleum refineries across the US, Canada, Argentina and the United Kingdom. As a result, he and his family lived in a variety of interesting and beautiful locations around the world, including Buenos Aires; Sarnia, Ontario; London, England; and Basking Ridge, NJ. He developed many rich, life-long friendships over his years there.

In search of the perfect retirement location, Bob and Marie traveled in a motor home for six months across North America. Along the way, they received a recommendation to visit “paradise” at The Landings on Skidaway Island. They did, and immediately knew they had found their perfect spot. They built their dream home, golfed avidly, enjoyed boating in the Inner Coastal Waterway, biked around the island and made many dear friends. In 2005, after 20 wonderful years, they moved to The Marshes on Skidaway Island, where they remained very active.

Bob loved the sea and was an avid sailor and swimmer throughout his life. Learning to sail as boy on Lake Champlain in Vermont, he delighted in being at the helm of his sailboat on the beautiful Georgian Bay of Lake Huron, and crossing the Atlantic on a freighter ship. He also loved to ski, and spent many glorious days schussing through the mountains with family and friends. One of his proudest moments was watching his son, Scott, participate in the 1972 Olympics in Munich, Germany as a Modern Pentathlete. While he was compassionate, affectionate, intelligent, and hard-working, Bob also was fun-loving, and had a quick wit and a great sense of humor.

Committed to helping others, Bob volunteered for many years with Habitat for Humanity and the Bethesda Barn Builders. A member of St. Peter’s Episcopal Church on Skidaway Island, he served on the Vestry as Junior Warden. A life-long learner, Bob was an avid reader, debater and a member of the Great Books Club. He was a member of the Landings Golf Club and Boat Club.

Above all, his family was the most important aspect of his life. He is survived by his beloved wife, Marie, his children Scott Scheuermann (Ann) of Toronto, Ontario, Susan Volcko of Halifax, Nova Scotia, and Sally McCraven (Bob) of Newbury, MA. His grandchildren are Sara and Alison Scheuermann, Rob and Amanda Volcko, and Jack and Paige McCraven. He will be missed dearly by them all. He was predeceased by his sister, Jane Scott, and his parents Dorothy Miller and George Scheuermann.

A memorial service will be held on Monday, March 27th at 11am at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church, with a reception to follow.

In lieu of flowers, donations in his memory to St. Peter’s Episcopal Church, 3 West Ridge Rd. Savannah, GA, 31411, would be appreciated.
