About this cause:Sheldon Patrick Maul (10/23/1993 â€“ 08/28/2014)
0steosarcoma took his physical body. His beautiful spirit still inspires all paths that he crossed in life and his legacy lives on. His beautiful smile and internal light lit up a room. And it still does 2 years later ; and I suspect it will forever... until we are joined in eternal life; Heaven. I'll see you first.
On Thursday night August 28th, 2014. Sheldon passed at home peacefully with his family and held by his mother. While osteosarcoma took his body, it didnâ€™t take his amazing spirit. Sheldonâ€™s amazing grace and courage inspired this community. His friendliness, insight- fullness and empathy for others had a great impact. This community rallied and showed its support, in part, with their over 45,000 visits to Sheldonâ€™s CaringBridge site. Friends also showed support by creating a Sheldonâ€™s Shield logo, which is displayed on t-shirts and autos and tattooed on many bodies. Sheldon is survived by his parents, Mark and Valerie Wilkerson; siblings, Slade and Suzanne Maul; grandfather, John Newell, Jr. and many Newell, Maul and Wilkerson cousins. Sheldon so young , was preceded by his grandmothers: Constance Newell and Myrna Haynes; and uncles, James Newell, John Newell and Craig Maul and Graham Morin (cousin). His entire family would like to thank the many professionals in the medical communities of Spokane and Seattle Childrenâ€™s Hospitals who participated in his care. A special thanks to Sheldonâ€™s home nurse and friend whom he came to love so much, Renae Wedlake. Sheldon was a very proud member of the Spokane Community College golf team, and graduated from Freeman High School. He loved snow skiing and riding his rather noisy and faster antique jet ski. He loved 4-wheelin in his pickup which Wishing Star helped him trick out. He led a full life for one only age 20, having attended the London Olympics, Final Four, and Masters; he fished for King salmon in Alaska, golfed in Northern Ireland and St. Andrews, Scotland and witnessed President Obamaâ€™s inauguration in D.C. Sheldon was a friend to all who met him, was extraordinarily handsome, and his smile lit any room. His college golf coach said of the Sheldon Maul Teammate Award created in his honor, â€œWe give this to the
guy who the team votes as the member who is a teammate in every sense of the word. To put it simple, this person just makes you want to be a better human being!â€ Zak Foundation is also creating an award in his honor, the Sheldon Maul Courage Award, dedicated to help other kids fighting cancer in our community. Sheldon changed the life of many, and he was very proud that he could inspire us to live our lives with the goodness he showered on others. All that loved him celebrated his life on Friday, September 12, 2014 his tribute was presided by his friend and Pastor Joe Whitwer at Life Center in Spokane, WA. In lieu of flowers his family asks that a memorial contribution be made to the Zak Foundation â€“Rypien Foundation. These funds go to Sheldon Maul Award, PO BOX 19188, Spokane, WA 99219.
Blessings to all of our friends near and far that supported us during our most trying of times. Sheldon leaves behind so many honors. And so many that treasured him then and now.
