June 2, 1930 — April 20, 2O13

Howard James Cheezum, 82, of Placerville, Calif., was born on June 2, 1930, in Easton, Md. He passed away on April 20, 2013, at 2 a.m., in Marshall Hospital in Placerville. He was preceded in death by his beloved wife of 56 years, Laura Cheezum; and their son, Ronald Scheirman. He is survived by his children: daughter, Rebecca Cargil, son-in-law, Ralph Cargil, and their son, Benjamin; son, Craig Scheirman, daughter-in-law, Cindy Scheirman, granddaughter, Sandy McCready and her daughter, Cassandra, and grandsons, Devin Scheirman and Ronald Scheirman and his son, Robbie. He is also survived by his sister, Cathy Jones; and brother, Louis Schuyler.

Howard was an active member of the Elks Club, Masons and Shriners organizations. His greatest joy was his interaction with children through volunteer work with Shriner’s Hospital and the “Widdle Wheels” club. He was a life-long traveling salesman and a successful business owner. He truly never met a stranger and, through his kindness, consideration and loyalty made many friends in El Dorado County and across the U.S. as he and Laura traveled for business and pleasure.

A memorial service will be held at the Placerville Elks Lodge on Quest Court of Durock Road in Shingle Springs on May 18 at 11 a.m. A reception with food will follow.
