Scouter Carl Schumacher Passes


It is with sadness that I announce the passing of a great man and probaly one of the best Boy Scout leaders I have had the honor of knowing.

Carl Schumacher was the Scoutmaster for Boy Scout Troop 181 for 12 years.  During his tenure he guided 33 Scouts to the rank of Eagle Scout.  Both of his sons are Eagle Scouts.  After stepping down as Scoutmaster Carl Stayed active with the Troop, Cub Pack and Venturing Crew by serving as the Unit Commissioner and the Institutional Representative.  He was present at just about everything that the Troop did for over 33 years.  He went to summer camp with the troop for 33 years straight.

His work with the hundreds of Scouts that have been members of the Troop will not be forgotten.  He was a mentor to the Scoutmaster that took over for him and was a dear friend and mentor to me.  I could always count on Carl for advise when I needed it in regards to the Troop.

Carl was a member of Grace UCC and was always a active member.  Carl spent countless housrs volunteering hours of work for the YMCA bookfair and this year the Bookfair was dedicated to his honor.

I thank him for all that he did for the troop but especially for all that he did in helping to make me a better Scoutmaster. Whenever I needed advice from Carl he would always start with "In my experience". Now Carl is in that great camping field in heaven and I can hear him tell those around him "In my experience."

Yours In Scouting,

Greg Stone

Scoutmaster Troop 181

He will be laid out at Fey Funeral home, Friday Oct 25, 2013 from 5 to 8pm and Saturday from 10 to 11am with services at 11am on Saturday.
