John Henry Schumacher, DDS, 74 of Nashotah, passed away unexpectedly on Sunday, September 12, 2021, at Oconomowoc Memorial Hospital.
John was born April 19, 1947, in Milwaukee, the son of Paul and Eleanor (Krohn) Schumacher. He grew up in the area and on August 8, 1970, John married Kathleen Talbot, his sweetheart since age 13, at the Wauwatosa Methodist Church. The couple had 4 children and shared 51 years of marriage together. John attended Valparaiso University and Marquette University Dental School, graduating in 1972. After graduation, John owned and operated his own dental practice in Hartford, where he worked hard to provide for his family. Gardening, Packers Football, trips to Vegas and watching “Mama Mia” were some of John’s favorite activities, but above all else John was a true family man. From holiday traditions to the State Fair and barbeques, he was a loving and steadfast father, husband and friend to all who knew him. Regardless of what was going on in his life, John was a strong man who held up those around him and encouraged his family with his generous attitude and sometimes stubborn nature. He was a devout member of Devine Redeemer Lutheran Church of Hartland and he will be deeply missed.
John is survived by: his wife Kathleen Schumacher of Nashotah; children Heidi (Chris) Rhodes of Nashotah, Cory (Jessica) Schumacher of Jackson, and Jodi (Chris) Brink of Milwaukee; 6 grandchildren Noah Rhodes (23), Natalie Rhodes (12) Charlotte Rhodes (9), Jonah Schumacher (11) Henry Schumacher (9) Jillian Schumacher (4); and his sister Nancy Cooper of Austin, TX. John is also survived by a number of other relatives and many friends.
John is preceded in death by his parents and son Hans Schumacher (2011).
A memorial service will be held at 12:00PM on Saturday, October 2, 2021 at Divine Redeemer Lutheran Church with Rev. Seth Flick presiding. Visitation will be on Saturday from 10:00AM until the time of service at the church. John will be laid to rest at Wisconsin Memorial Park, near his son Hans at a later date.
