Lloyd Schuchmann, Urbandale, formerly of Strawberry Point

Lloyd Wayne Schuchmann was born on November 20, 1928, and passed away peacefully on December 29, 2013, at Deerfield Retirement Center in Urbandale, Iowa.  Lloyd grew up in Strawberry Point, Iowa where he met and married his wife of 65 years, Fonda Mae Snyder.

He began his working career with the City of Strawberry Point and then the City of Waverly, Iowa before beginning work with the Voice of America which took him and his family to Germany, the Philippines, Morocco, Greece, Maryland, and then eventually retiring in Strawberry Point.  Strawberry Point was always a place Lloyd held fondly in his heart.  He loved the beauty of Clayton County including the country side, the trout fishing, pheasant hunting, seeing deer run, the eagles fly, and of course playing golf.  Lloyd was active in his community serving his church, the Lions Club, and on the EMS just to name a few. He received the Lions Club Melvin Jones Fellow Award, was the volunteer of the year award recipient for Clayton County, and was also recognized by the state of Iowa.

He is survived by his wife Fonda of Urbandale; sons Gregory (Linda) of Omaha, NE, Steven (Christine) of West Des Moines, and Jeffrey  (LeDonna Durant) of Las Vegas;  six  grandchildren;  seven great-grandchildren; a brother, Harold (Mary Ann) of Humboldt; and a sister, Reva (Don) Bunting of Ames.
