William “Tiny” Ephraim Sheldrick

August 18, 1921- January 24, 2019

William “Tiny” Sheldrick, age 97, passed away peacefully in his home on January 24, 2019 surrounded by his family. He was born on August 18, 1921 in West Haven Vermont to George and Mable (Hunt) Sheldrick. He is survived by his brothers Calvin (Pete), Howard (Dowdy) and David (Dave), and sisters, Audrey (Duge), Jane (Janie), and is predeceased by brothers George (Buck), Franklin (Peany) and sisters, Dorothy (Peaches), Genevieve (Sister) and Marion (Majee). William and his first wife Mary were married in November 1944. They had seven beautiful children; William and his wife Michelle of Bridport, John and his wife Joyce of Richfield Springs NY, David and his significant other, Wendy Stone of Shoreham, Christopher and his wife Kathleen of West Haven, Patricia Townsend and her husband Harold of New Berlin NY, Mary-Jo Pinson and her husband Eric of Fallbrook CA, and is predeceased by daughter Pamela Sheldrick. After his wife tragic passing in December 1967, William met Elizabeth Wisell; who also survives him; and had five wonderful boys; Erik and his wife Kimberly of Shoreham, Isaac and his wife Megan of Brandon, Matthew of Salisbury, George of Weybridge and Eugene and his wife Christina of Salisbury. The couple married in February 2004. William is survived by his many, many nieces, nephews, 48 grandchildren, 69 great grandchildren and 12 great, great grandchildren.

            Many who knew Tiny, knew that he was all about his family. It would be nothing to find him telling his stories to anyone who would listen. When he wasn’t busy working on the farm which he was able to do into his early 90’s, or helping out family you could always find him tinkering on one of his many Farmall tractors. He always said that “If it isn’t red, then leave it in the shed.” He loved life and the adventures that it came with. He especially loved spending time with the grand babies and would hold them for hours. They were all his “little cusses” whether they were related or not. William was a loving, husband, brother, father, grandfather, great grandfather, friend and so much, much more to so many people. He will be deeply and terribly missed by everyone.

A funeral service will be held on Saturday February 2nd, 2019 at 1pm, at Mallory Funeral Home in Fair Haven VT. Where friends may call from 11am until the time of the service at 1pm.

A private graveside committal service and burial will be held, at a later date in Our Lady of Angel’s Cemetery in Whitehall NY.

Memorial gifts in lieu of flowers may be made in his memory to; The Vermont Heart Association, 110 Main Street, Suite 203, Burlington, VT 05401.
