Lee Albert Scheffers, age 78 of Kalamazoo, died on March 20, 2024. He was born on August 27, 1945, in Kalamazoo, the son of Albert and Martha (Reyers) Scheffers. Lee was a 1963 graduate of Loy Norrix High School and received his degree from Parsons Business College. During the Vietnam War, Lee served in the U.S. Army. Upon his honorable discharge, he began his 35 year career at Eaton Corporation. After retirement, Lee volunteered for 20 years at Bronson Hospital and at the Kalamazoo Deacon Conference. Lee married Lynne Armstrong on September 9, 1966. They were members for over 50 years at North Park Reformed Church, where he served on the consistory board and was in small groups. Lee loved sports, including basketball, tennis, fishing, and pickleball. He was a fanatic about his garden, growing hundreds of flowers and plants. His garden and immaculate lawn were Lee’s way to unwind after a day at work and volunteering.
