David D. Sheets, 76, passed away February 3rd at Toledo Hospital. A lifelong Toledoan, he attended Macomber High School and worked at Toledo Jeep for 45 years, retiring in 2008.
In his younger years, he enjoyed spending time with his siblings and friends in the Old South End. With an explorative nature, Dave often took his wife and daughters on fun Sunday drives with a few adventurous stops along the way.

His most prized accomplishment was The Sheetsmobile, a car he built from scratch including a solid oak frame, and registered with the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles.
