Thomas G. Schomers

Des Moines

Thomas "Otis" Schomers, 61, passed away peacefully on March 12, 2014 after a brief illness. A Memorial Service will be at 11 a.m. on Friday, March 14 at Iles Dunn's Chapel. Tom was born in Ottumwa, Iowa on September 13, 1952 to Gerald Francis and Sally Ann Schomers. He graduated from Roosevelt High School and attended Washburn University. Tom worked in various jobs in Tampa, Florida and Des Moines. His greatest love was running sound for his brother's band, and music in general. His son, Sid, was the apple of his eye.

Tom will long be remembered for his understated, hilarious sense of humor which was a gift to all who loved him. He is survived by his son, Sid Eggers and his parents, Val and Greg (Dubuque), his mother, Sally Schomers (Bettendorf), his brother Michael and family (Tampa), his sister, Susan Swanson and family (Le Claire), Uncle Ray Johnson and family (Clive), Aunt Nancy Mooney and family (Ste. Genevieve, MO), family of the late Sally Schomers Bailey (Perry) and many friends over the years.

Rest in peace, dear Odie. You are greatly loved and missed. Online condolences are welcomed at
