Obituary

JAMES DAVID SCHOEFFLER, age 85, passed away May 12, 2018. Beloved husband of the late Patricia (nee Gorce); loving father of Anne Marie Tomsich (husband Rudy), Michael (wife Vickie), David (wife Anne), Thomas (wife Kimberly), Daniel (wife Laura), Mary Ellen Watkin (husband John), Lisa Anne Weber (husband John) and Andrew (wife Jeanine); cherished grandfather of 18; dear brother of Hugh Anthony Schoeffler and the late Geraldine, Otto, John, Valerie and Lawrence Schoeffler. Jim graduated with an MS in Electrical Engineering from CWRU in 1957 and went on to earn a Doctor of Science in Computers at MIT in 1960. He worked with computers his entire professional life, beginning in the early pioneering days of computing. In addition to teaching, which he loved, he consulted with NASA and companies all over the world to implement computer enterprise systems. He retired as Dean of Computer Science at Cleveland State University. Family was very important and he was always the “go-to” for math help or helping make life’s important decisions. He committed many years to Boy Scout Troop #620 at Gesu and was proud of his five Eagle Scout sons! Jim was extremely outgoing and friendly, with the ability to talk to anyone about anything. He and his wife had many lifelong friends they enjoyed socially. Jim was curious and constantly learning by reading books. He discovered a love of sailing and led his family on many fun adventures. In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate contributions in memory of Jim to Boy Scout Troop #620 c/o Gesu Church, 2470 Miramar Blvd., Cleveland, OH 44118.
