Stanley A Schroeder

Stanley A Schroeder 

June 27, 1961 - March 9, 2024 

 

Stan was born to Delmar L Schroeder and Barbara Jean (Unruh) Schroeder on June 27, 1961, in Newton, Kansas. He passed away while living at the Life Care Center in Greeley, CO.

 

He attended Cooper Elementary School (where he walked 7 blocks each day to school, home for lunch, back to school and back home again) until the family moved to Colorado in 1968. In his younger days, he and his brother Russ spent many hours on the living room floor doing pencil drawings of many subjects. He graduated from Eaton High School in 1979. He remained friends with two of his high school friends, Roger Jordan and Becky Knowlton. He graduated from UNC in 1983 with a degree in elementary education. After teaching a few years, he moved to Los Angeles, CA to attend University of Southern California where he received his master’s degree in German. He taught German in Fort Collins where he met some very special friends that he remained connected with until his passing. He traveled to Germany as part of his education and took students to Germany. He loved Germany!

 

In 1992, he moved back to LA and later met the love of his life, Dean Hale in February 1994 and were later married in 2013. Stan and Dean enjoyed many trips to all parts of the world. They renovated many homes including in Los Angeles and Dallas and enjoyed regularly entertaining all their friends and family. His career included positions in Operations, Publishing and in Procurement. Stan’s other career was his deep affinity for restoration and spent time restoring and remodeling he and Dean’s homes in Dallas and Los Angeles. Stan was always interested in the architecture of old buildings, especially those in the Art Deco era. One of his favorite tours of LA included the beautiful and interesting older homes in Los Angeles. He also studied and received a master’s degree from the University of Phoenix in Linguistics.

 

After his father’s death in 2014, he sacrificed the life in Los Angeles, and moved back to Colorado to take care of his mother along with his furry best friend Maggie. During this time, he made friends with many of the neighbors in Fox Crossing. He and his mom enjoyed many visits with their friends from their patio. He also developed Facebook friends from all over the world.

 

Stan spent many hours researching his Mennonite heritage and through that he established friendships with his cousins in Kansas and those living in the area of Europe where his ancestors migrated from. Although not attending church on a regular basis, Stan stood with much of the Mennonite theology, especially regarding peace and being a conscientious objector, and listened regularly to hymns sung by Mennonite groups.

 

Stan is survived by his spouse, Dean Hale, his sister, Kris Kline and husband John, Errol Schroeder and wife Darlene, Gregg Schroeder and wife, Cindy, and many nieces and nephews. He is preceded in death by his grandparents, brother, Russ, Dad, Delmar and Mom, Barbara and his beloved dogs Ellie and Maggie.

 

Stan can truly be described as a Renaissance man.

 

Stan took away with him knowledge of his heritage, memories of his many travels, and the love he had for his family. Because Stan was secure in his salvation his passing was peaceful. We look forward to being reunited with him some day.

 

Stan’s celebration of Life will be held on April 27, 2024, at 2:00 pm at Journey Christian Church in Greeley, CO. 

 

Stan, we wish you godspeed.
