Lee Cyril Scheffy Obituary

from dallas, Louisiana, United States

Lee Cyril ScheffyWith his family by his side, Lee Cyril Scheffy passed away after a lengthy illness on his 65th birthday of August 13, 2017. Lee was a dedicated husband, beloved father, and grandfather. Lee is survived by his loving wife of 44 years, Lucy Oliver Scheffy. Great sources of pride were his children Lee (Cy) Cyril Scheffy, Jr and his wife Lauren, Catherine (Cate) Scheffy Carlin and her husband Daniel and Scott Dalton Scheffy and his wife Anna. Lee is also survived by his brothers Robert Williams Scheffy, Jr (Pat), William Warren Scheffy and James Heroman Scheffy. He was preceded in death by his parents Robert Williams Scheffy, Sr and Catherine June Heroman Scheffy and his sister-in-law Mary Robinson Scheffy. Above all, his heart was stolen by seven young people - Cy, Emily, Ford, Lucy Cole, Dalton, Margaret and (soon to be) Helen. Each child was an amazing treasure to Papa Lee. Lee was born on August 13th, 1952 in Baton Rouge, LA. He graduated from Baton Rouge High School in 1970 where he was active in athletics, student government, and various clubs and organizations. Lee was a lifelong Tiger fan and received a degree in Marketing from LSU in 1974. Lee began his career with IBM shortly after graduation and remained with the company until his retirement in 2011. Thanks to IBM, Lee was fortunate to live in Baton Rouge, New Orleans, Memphis, Atlanta and Dallas/Ft. Worth. He, however, spent most of his career in Shreveport. Lee maintained close relationships with his friends and co-workers from each location. He enjoyed sharing his views and opinions on life and other worldly matters with anyone who would listen. However, his greatest passion later in life was the game of golf. Even through his illness, golf remained a fascination for him. Although he could never conquer the game, he loved to talk about it and "teach" others his method for the perfect swing. Visitation will be at Rabenhorst Funeral Home, 825 Government Street, Baton Rouge, Thursday, August 17, 2017, from 5:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. and Friday, August 18, 2017, after 9:00 a.m. until memorial services at 10:00 a.m. Special thanks go out to the care givers at Baton Rouge General Hospital.
