In 1983 Mr. Scheiber left the corporate world and founded ConsuLogic Consulting Services, a one-man consulting firm at which he worked for the remainder of his life. Over the next 35 years he would attend and present at conferences ranging from California to China, Singapore and Germany. He served for many years as the editor of Test & Measurement World magazine, and published his first textbook, Building a Successful Board Test Strategy in 1995. He was an avid lover of music and baseball, and was a lifelong fan of the New York Mets since their early days at the Polo Grounds.
He is survived by his wife and partner of 47 years Mary Wilson Scheiber, by his sisters Ruth Blair (and Bill), Carol Gnacik (and Marty), children David Scheiber (and Patricia), Jacob Scheiber, and many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
