Obituary for Donald A. Scheibenreif

Donald A. Scheibenreif, age 77, a longtime resident of Plainfield, formerly of Downers Grove, IL, passed away peacefully, Thursday, July 5, 2018 at The Springs of Monarch in Naperville. He was born November 27, 1940 in Chicago, IL.

Beloved husband of 50 years to the late Pamela S. Scheibenreif; cherished father of Donald A. (Mona) Scheibenreif, Jr., Susan (Rich) Villanova, and Jason Scheibenreif; adored grandpa of Anthony and Ashley Villanova, Monica and Anthony Ray; dear brother of Marie (Mike) Willock and Joseph (Rosemary Carioscia) Scheibenreif. He was preceded in death by his faithful four-legged companion Emmy.

Don was the first in his family to graduate from college, earning a B.S. in Business Administration from DePaul University in 1970. In early 1971, he joined the U.S. Postal Service as a Postal Inspector and enjoyed a rich career spanning 26 years in New York and Chicago until his retirement in 1997. As a Postal Inspector he worked in a number of divisions including Fraud, Audit, and Internal Theft. As a law enforcement officer, he was committed to ensuring the security of the U.S. Postal System and bringing to justice those that would do it harm. Don was also an expert marksman, and enjoyed teaching others how to use firearms responsibly. He had a love of softball, exercising, gardening, cooking, and endless hours of football. He and his late wife Pamela loved to travel and spend time with their children and grandchildren.
