Robert (Bob) Schoettle, age 92, of Eau Claire, died peacefully on November 7, 2019, after a short battle with cancer. He was born August 29th, 1927, in Eau Claire, WI, to Anthony and Bertha (Meyer) Schoettle. After his service in the Navy, Bob married Marcy Beaver in 1950. He attended the University of Wisconsin at Eau Claire and worked as a mail carrier with the US Postal Service for 27 years. Bob was an avid sportsman with a passion for hunting and fishing. After retiring from the Post Office, Bob cherished his time camping on Yellow Lake with his wife, Marcy, and will be remembered for his fishing expertise on the lakes of Northern Wisconsin. Bob was proceeded in death by his wife of 67 years, Marcy Schoettle, his mother and father, sisters, Doris Adams and Jean Loesch, and his brothers, Wally, Bill, and James Schoettle.

Bob’s Catholic faith was very important to him and he was a member of St. James the Greater Church and Maryknoll for over 50 years. He will be remembered for his faith, strong work ethic, love of the outdoors, and love for his family.
