Robert James Schedler

September 7, 1928 ~ August 24, 2020 (age 91)


Robert Schedler, age 91, passed away peacefully at home on Monday, August 24.

Son of the late Rev. Herman and Lillie Schedler, he was preceded in death by his sister Florence (Mas) Hayakawa and brother Eugene (Johanna) Schedler.  He is survived by his wife of 65 years Sharon (Mootz), sons Mark (Stacia) of Eagan MN, David (Janet) of Oshkosh WI, and Bruce (Francesca) of Naperville IL, daughter Beth (Brian) Bisgrove of Wausau, brothers Richard (Lorraine) of Stevens Point, and Harold (Vonnie) of Sacramento CA, sister-in-law Shirley (Robert) Huebner, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and many friends.

Bob went to Maple Grove elementary school in Hamburg and high school and college at Concordia in Milwaukee.  He was drafted into the Army and, during the Korean war, worked in communications for two years in Berlin, Germany.  Bob worked at Wausau Builders Supply for many years, starting as a delivery driver to owning the business.  After retirement, he grew restless and enjoyed working part-time for Van der Geest Dairy Farm.

Bob had a great sense of humor and would stop and chat with people whenever he had a chance.  He enjoyed watching the birds, playing cards, photography, and woodturning, where he made hundreds of beautiful pens.  Bob was a man of strong faith, loved by his family and friends, and will be deeply missed.
