RIDGWAY, COLORADO -- John F. Schepper, of Ridgway, Colorado, died unexpectedly at his home on March 16, 2011.
He was born in Mount Vernon, NY on September 1, 1936, the son of the late Fred and Jean Schepper of Peru, VT. He went to the State University of New York where he received a degree in marketing and had a long career in the high technology industry. Over those years, he worked locally for Sanders, Digital, Computer Vision and Raytheon until his retirement, and then started his own marketing consulting company.
He married Elsie (Widmaier) Schepper in 1959, and thereafter moved to Chelmsford in 1961 where he resided for many years and raised a family.
Later on, being an avid yachtsman, he sailed the Mediterranean and crossed the Atlantic with his companion Maggie. After five years at sea, they then toured the country and finally decided on the State of Colorado as home, where he reverted back to his earlier days of designing, building and construction.
He is survived by his companion, Margaret "Maggie" Guscott of Ridgway, CO; former wife, Elsie Schepper of Nashua, NH; a son, Garrett Schepper and his wife, Denise of Sturbridge, MA; two daughters, Darien Bond of Chelmsford, MA, and Kyla Callaluca and husband, Peter of Littleton, MA; a brother, Charles Schepper and his wife, Elaine of Rockhill, SC; four grandsons; three granddaughters; and one niece.
