Robert "Bob" W. Schumacher

Passed away on June 18, 2020, at the age of 81. Born on July 29, 1938 to his loving parents, the late William and Anna (nee Baron) Schumacher. Beloved husband for 62 years of the late Mitzi (nee Ugland) Schumacher. Cherished father of Christine M. Cheever and Robert R. (Ann) Schumacher. Proud grandfather of 9; great-grandfather of 22, including the late Julian Rosario-Cheever and Isaiha Kobow; and great-great grandfather of 4. Predeceased in death by his two sisters and three brothers. Further survived by nieces and nephews, other loving relatives and friends.

Bob was a hard-working man who also knew how to enjoy life. He spent his career working for American Motors, at the plant on Holton Ave. and Capitol Dr., where he could wave to his wife and kids as they drove by. He also worked for the Shorewood DPW, as well as the Head Custodian at St. Eugene's School and St. Francis High School. Like his wife Mitzi, Bob also played in the Shorewood Rec. Softball League for many years. He was an avid and keen card player. He enjoyed deer hunting in Pembine, WI, first with his father-in-law and then with his son, along with other family and friends. Bob also loved the trips with Mitzi and his family to their cottage, outside of Mountain, WI.

My brother-in-law, Bob was a big part of my growing up years. Mitzi and Bob got married when I was 11 years old and lived with us for awhile until they got on their feet. Bob treated me like his little sister and I knew I could always count on him in spite of the teasing. He was always very supportive and good to me. I know that given all the suffering, he is now in a peaceful place at rest at last. I will keep the good memories close to my heart. To Chris and Bob and your families, remember the best times. Sending love to you. Aunt Judi XOXO

I grew up with "little Schu" and was at "Big Schu's" home often. Mr. Schu treated me like his own. We laughed a lot, played cards (he normally took our money) and lived life. I even played softball against him for several years. I loved the man and I love his family - Bob, brother I know what it is to lose a father, Love you and if you need anything - I am here for you. Prayers for the the whole family. Love you all
