Obituary Condolences

"The angels came down and took Grandpa to heaven today." Our beloved Great Grandpa, Grandpa, Dad and Husband, Lester David Schroll died peacefully at 5:50 a.m. on Sunday, August 24, 2014. He was 85 years old. We will all miss Dad's beautiful smile, endearing personality, and quiet but ever present faith in God. A life-long Methodist, Dad was very active in the Morton UMC in Morton, Ill.; Seaside UMC in Sunset Beach, NC, and most recently a member of Church of the Resurrection, in Leawood, Kan. He and Mom helped launch the COR Livestream church services at Silvercrest Retirement Home, one of many ministry areas they shared over their 50 years of married life. Dad and Mom's devotion to one another was a gift they daily gave to each other. Dad was Mom's best sous chef, always ready and willing to help out with any family meal. Mom returned Dad's love with her unselfish and constant care. She was the best nurse Dad could ever have, especially this last year. Before retirement Dad was a Farm Accountant. He loved all aspects of outdoor life. Favorite activities were golfing, gardening, bird watching, and when younger, track and skiing. Those Dad loved with all his heart include his beloved wife, Metzell Schroll; daughter, Donna Ackerman; son, Jeffrey Schroll; brother, Dean Schroll; sister, Jeanne Aden; four grandchildren and nine great grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his brother, Don, and son, Steve. Should a memorial contribution be a way to remember and support Dad in his new journey, you can join us in supporting The Resurrection Memorial Fund or Crossroads Hospice who have been such a wonderful gift to Dad over the last year. A private gathering of family and friends to remember and celebrate Dad's life will be held at a later date. Cremation Society of Kansas & Missouri, www.kccremation.com
