William J. Schuler

William J. Schuler of Willowbrook passed away Nov. 21, 2021, with his family by his side.

Bill was a devoted father, never giving up no matter how many phone calls he had to make or miles he had to travel. Generous in hard times, he always had a comforting hand and sympathetic ear, backed by a godly conviction to stand for what was right. He was the eldest of eight children and a brother to those who never had one. Bill was a longtime member of St. Isaac Jogues Church. He will be dearly missed while his memory fills the hearts of friends and family.

He is survived by his son, James; his siblings, Peggy (George) Summins, Jeannie Papacek and Cathie Brechtel; and many nieces and nephews.

Bill was preceded in death by his siblings, Barb (Pat) Murray, Rev. Robert Schuler, Betty (Paul) Micek and Mary Jo Schuler.

Visitation will be held from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 27, in the fireplace room at St. Isaac Jogues Catholic Church, 306 W. Fourth St., Hinsdale.

A funeral Mass will follow at 11:30 a.m. at the church.

Interment is at Assumption Catholic Cemetery in Wheaton.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Knights of Columbus, 25 N. Cass Ave., Westmont, IL 60559.
