Condolence From: Dawn Wessels
Condolence: He was the coolest Drivers Ed instructor ever! His "classroom" at that time was a spare room just off the north side of the stage above the kitchen at IHS. I remember how he would casually (and calmly) get into the passenger seat for my lessons. He would lean his seat back and sprawl out like he was being taken on a Sunday drive with an experienced driver, not someone who had only had their learners permit for a few months. His manner, and his jokes, put me at ease and gave me confidence. I should have shared this with him when I saw him recently. I will remember the huge smile on his face that day. My condolences to Rhonda and his children. May this good man rest in peace.

Condolence: I always enjoyed Mr. Sheets-I had driver's ed with him and He was my Civics teacher in high school. It was a joy to see him at Walmart two weeks ago. My heartfelt condolences to all of his family. I shared his obituary on Facebook and the responses from former students and football players -classes of 1966 and other years were represented. He was loved and respected. Love to all of you.

Condolence: To the family of Tom, I offer you a football practice story. Here we go. It is late summer practice prior to the start of school and HOT & MUGGY! Coach Sheets is dressed in a white polo with the maroon Mustang logo, maroon Mustang hat with white logo, maroon coaches shorts complete with white belt, white knee high socks with maroon stripes and a pair of the coolest pair of black, Spot Built coaches shoes. We were soaking wet after running 100 yard ladders which was right after running hills and Coach Sheets hollers, "move your feet, move your feet, you dogs, the first team you play won't know what 'em! True story, or pretty close.. At least what he was wearing. Thanks Coach Sheets for making great memories for all of us "dogs".
