Caleb Dunbar Scheidel, age 30, passed away at home surrounded by his family on Thursday, February 28, 2019, after a courageous battle with melanoma.  He was born December 27, 1988, in Grand Rapids, to Phillip Scheidel and Melanie Dunbar.  On June 17, 2017, Caleb married Amy Morgan in Wayland.

Caleb had a passion for the outdoors, he loved camping and tubing and was a diehard Detroit Lions Fan.  He was proud to be able to fulfill his dream of owning and operating Scheidel Lawn Care. Caleb was always considerate of others and retained his great sense of humor throughout his illness. 

He will be greatly missed by his wife, Amy; sons, Dante age 17 and Christian age 7; mother, Melanie (Doug Fox) Dunbar-Fox; siblings, Leonora Dunbar and Eric Scheidel; grandparents, Lee (Garry Mattox) Sanders and Jude Dunbar; parents-in-law, Mabel and Ralph Alexander; best friend, Mitchell Roe; and many other loving relatives and friends. 

Caleb was preceded in death by his father, Phillip Scheidel.

The family would like to extend a special thank you to the staffs of Cancer and Hematology of West Michigan, Spectrum Health, and Spectrum Health Hospice. 

A celebration of life will take place at a later date.  To send a message of sympathy to the family, sign Caleb’s online guestbook or to share a favorite memory, please visit:

    Caleb will be greatly missed by so many people. I first met him while working at Gun Lake Casino. He was always joking & playing pranks on everyone. I use to spend a lot of time hanging out with him, Amy & the boys having bonfires, playing yahtzee, having a few drinks & cookouts. Rest in peace my dear friend. Always in my heart. Love ya buddy

    I have so many childhood memories with Caleb as we spent our elementary, middle school, and high school years together. His sense of humor was contagious and a favorite quality of mine. My condolences to his family and friends as they cherish his memory and celebrate his life.
