Schaefer, Jesse 87 yrs., passed away 4/6/2012. Preceded in death by Mary Lou, wife of 57 yrs., and son, Jesse. Survived by sons, Peter, Dan & partner Michelle, Jaime & wife Cyndi; daughter, Paula & husband Mike Hlebaen; grandson, Jesse; granddaughters, Hannah, and Cassie Phillips & husband Ben; great-grandson, Aiden. Jesse lived in Robbinsdale his whole life, except when he served in the U.S. Marine Corps as a young man. He worked hard to support his family for many years as a floor layer, enjoyed visiting with family, friends and neighbors, traveling to Alaska, his pets, gardening and feeding the urban wildlife. Jesse cared deeply about his family, was loved by all and will be greatly missed. We feel blessed to have had our father and grandfather for so many long years and we are happy that he is now at peace and has joined his wife, son and all those who have gone before him. He has provided us with many important life lessons: look after your family always, work hard, go to church, appreciate what you have, enjoy life's simple pleasures, and remember "it could always be worse." Funeral Mass will be held at Sacred Heart Church in Robbinsdale on Thursday at 10 AM with 11:15 AM luncheon to follow. Memorials may be sent to Disabled American Veterans at www.dav.org
