Weyauwega, Wisconsin 54983
Marvin (Bud) E. Schoenick, age 93, of Weyauwega, went to heaven on Friday, September 6, 2019 surrounded by his family. He was born on May 3, 1926 in Elgin, Illinois, son of the late Doc and Ardice (Potratz) Schoenick. On April 7, 1945, he married Bernice Kuehl in Corpus Christi, Texas. They were married for 68 years before Bernice went to heaven in 2013. Marvin and Bernice farmed for 42 years in the Town of Lind and Marvin worked for the school district of Weyauwega-Fremont for over 25 years. Marvin proudly served his country in the U.S. Navy during WWII and then re-enlisted during the Korean War. Marvin was a member of the Legion Post 176 and the VFW Post 10407. Aside from his children, farming was his greatest sense of pride and accomplishment in his life. Marvin was also an avid blood donor and donated countless gallons over the years to give back to his community (and he also enjoyed the cookies and company).
Marvin loved visits from his family, time at the auction house, playing cards and cribbage, doing cross word puzzles, traveling with Bernice, and he shared many stories about his life. Marvin's stories will forever be held close in the hearts of those who shared his love. Marvin leaves a legacy of hard work, a strong sense of determinism, a witty sense of humor and sarcasm and a love that continued to grow over time.
He is survived by his children: Billy (Carol) Schoenick, Wayne Schoenick, Nancy (Mike) Kempf, Jayne (Brent) Dittmann and Tammy Schoenick (Scooter). He is also survived by many grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews.
Besides his parents and wife, Marvin was preceded in death by his sons Tracy and Bobby, and two grandchildren, Stacey and Marsha.
