Obituary for Rick Schuler

Peoria- Rick Schuler, age 51, passed away at 3:17 PM, Friday, February 23, 2018 at OSF St. Francis Medical Center in Peoria.

Rick was born March 12, 1966 in Manitowoc, WI., a son of Kenneth and Karen (Helgeson) Schuler. He married Molly Morrissey on September 23, 1989 in Peoria. She survives. Also surviving are their four children; Kaitlin Schuler of Cleveland, OH., Connor Schuler of Fort Myers, FL., Brendan and Bridget Schuler of Edwards, IL., his parents, Ken and Karen Schuler of Kiel, WI., one brother, Terry Schuler of Newton, WI., two sisters; Maria Schuler of New London, WI., and Gina (Mitch) Augustine of Menasha, WI. He is also survived by numerous aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins.

First and foremost, Rick was dedicated to his family and made his wife and children the number one priority in his life. He was known for his tremendous work ethic, quiet demeanor and selflessness.

Rick graduated from Valders High School in 1984 and The University of Wisconsin-Whitewater, with a marketing degree in 1988. He worked for the Sherwin Williams Company for 30 years, most recently as a Protective and Marine Sales Representative and was the Secretary and Treasurer of the local chapter of the Professional Decorators and Contractors of America. His strong Catholic Faith was a constant source of comfort and guidance and was evident to all who knew him. Rick was a member of St. Philomena Catholic Church in Peoria and was active there in the Buildings and Grounds Committee, Men’s Club and was quick to volunteer his time for Fish Fries, Fall Fest, and the Annual Dinner Auction. In addition, he spent countless hours coaching youth sports including basketball, baseball and soccer. He served as Vice President of the Peoria Notre Dame High School Booster Club. Rick was an avid water-skier who truly loved being in a boat with his family. Whether it was an early morning run, or an evening cruise around the lake, Rick felt most at home on the water. He was particularly fond of his home state of Wisconsin and spent as much free time there as possible with family and friends. He enjoyed virtually all sports including basketball, tennis, biking, baseball, and kayaking. He will be remembered as a kind, gentle, and loving man.

A visitation will be from 4:00 PM-7:30 PM, Monday, February 26, 2018 at St. Philomena Catholic Church in Peoria. Funeral Mass will be held at 10:00 AM, Tuesday, February 27, 2018, also at the church, with a one hour prior visitation. Fr. David Richardson will officiate and burial will follow at St. Patrick Cemetery in Kickapoo.

Memorials may be made to St. Philomena Parish, PND Booster Club, or the American Cancer Society Hope Lodge in Iowa City, IA.
