Obituary Condolences

March 8, 1932 - Sept 4, 2013 OKLAHOMA CITY David M Scheirman passed from this earth to his home in Heaven on September 4, 2013. He is loved by many and he blessed many as he walked on this earth. He was born March 8, 1932, in Enid, OK to Peter and Dora Scheirman and was raised in Kingfisher, OK. Upon graduation from high school, Dave joined the Army and served in the Korean War. When he returned to Oklahoma, he obtained a degree in engineering. He began working in Oklahoma City, where he met his bride, Barbara Reuter, whom he married on April 12, 1958. They resided in Oklahoma City, where he partnered with Tom Determan to create Determan-Scheirman Consulting Engineers, where he worked full time up until June of this year. He joins his wife, Barbara, in eternal life; as well as his parents; brother, Richard Scheirman; and sister, Marian Scheirman Epperson. He is survived by his children: Sandra Plain and husband Kary, of Plano, TX; son, John Scheirman and wife Lisa, of Norman, OK; and Susan Schmidt and husband Dwayne, of Oklahoma City; as well as four grandchildren, Ryan Plain, Sarah Plain, Jacob Schmidt, and Luke Schmidt. Dave is described by friends as witty, upbeat, unselfish, as having a happy energy that people were drawn to, "never met a stranger" and lived a great example of a full life. He adored his grandchildren and spent most of his free time with them and his children. He enjoyed music, theater performances, traveling and relished riding the right seat of the cockpit. Two services will be held to celebrate his life, including a Wake on Friday, September 6, 2013, at 7:30 p.m. and a Funeral Saturday, September 7, 2013, at 10 a.m. at St. Charles Borromeo Catholic Church. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to St. Charles Social Ministries, 5024 N Grove, OKC, OK 73122.
