August 1, 1929 ~ August 18, 2020
Robert Schoener (Bob) was born on 8/01/29 in Pelican Rapids, MN, to Margaret Trossen Schoener and John Schoener. The family moved to Fargo where Bob attended school graduating from Sacred Heart Academy in 1947. Baseball was a large part of Bob’s life. While in high school he pitched on three State Championship Fargo American Legion teams. He was then drafted by the Cleveland Indians. He later attended NDSU and became employed as a salesman for many years with American Standard.
Bob married Geraldine Sullivan at Holy Spirit Church on 7/10/1954. Together they raised three daughters. His greatest joy was spending years at the family lake cabin on West McDonald Lake. He was an avid hunter and loved to tell stories of the hunting trips with his buddies. He was a great Father and Grandfather. He often mentioned what a blessed life he led!
Bob is survived by his wife, Geraldine; his daughters and sons-in-law, Peggy and Greg Wheelden, Fargo, ND, Laurie and Joe Leonhart, Fargo; Patti and Don Dill, Bellevue, WA; grandchildren Paul (Ann) Jarvis, Rachel Krein and Dan Krein of Fargo; great-grandchildren Avery, James and Dawson Jarvis of Fargo.
The family would like to thank Bob’s neighbors in North Fargo for all of their love and support over the years that led to Bob living out his dream of staying in his home until the end. Bob passed away on August 18, 2020 at his home in Fargo.
