Robert G. Schumacher, age 80, passed away surrounded by his family at his home on the morning of Sunday, 8 October 2023.

Bob was a Firefighter and one of the first 12 Paramedics (The Dirty Dozen) for the city of Oshkosh for 30 years. Bob was also a Hovercraft operator and trained other Firefighters. Over the years Bob was also a boat Captain for many vessels that ran the Fox River, Chief Oshkosh, Valley Queen, Belle of Fremont, and the Show Boat in Winneconne to name a few. Bob enjoyed his part-time business in his home, Schumacher’s Rod and Reel Repair. If you were lucky enough, you may be an owner of one of his custom-made rods.
