Thomas Jean Sheets Obituary
Sheets, Thomas Jean



Thomas Jean Sheets, a native of Santa Fe, born July 31, 1936, died on Thursday, October 27, 2016 at Lovelace Hospice.

He leaves behind his wife, Marilyn; son Mark and wife Lava; son Randy; step-daughter April and husband Rick;

grandson Christopher; nieces Sandi Pressley and husband Darryl, Dr. Jean Sheets and husband Robert Haldy, Peggy Sheets and husband Steve; nephews Raymond Lee Morgan and David Sheets and wife Danine; other realtives; loving friends and cat, Bubba.

He was preceded in death by his second wife, Roxy and their son, James.

Tom, an avid fisherman, was a Master Plumber by day and played jazz string bass around Northern New Mexico. The Sheets brothers, Tom, Don and Bob are telling jokes and making music together at last in a place even greater than New Mexico. Heaven help Heaven!

After leading separate lives and raising families, Tom reconnected with his first wife, Marilyn. They remarried in December 2010, had a wonderful year trailering to visit family and friends around the country. Back in New Mexico, they battled numerous health issues, but any life that can end with such great love is truly a fairly tale life.

A Memorial Service will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Friday, November 11th in the chapel of Central United Methodist Church. A reception will follow.
