Ronald Schumacher






























Ronald L. Schumacher, known as Opa by his beloved grandchildren and great-grandchildren and “Hoot” to a select few, passed away unexpectedly on November 3, 2014 in San Francisco, CA.

A celebration of life ceremony will be held at the Oakdale Country Club on Friday, November 21, 2014 at 11:00 a.m., with a reception following.

Born on a farm outside Sherwood, North Dakota to Harlan and Wilma, Ron learned the value of a strong work ethic as he grew up driving a team of horses and later a tractor through the plains of the Midwest. As the middle child in a family of seven, he also learned to depend on his older brother and sister, as well as care for his two younger sisters. Ron’s love for his brothers and sisters was always evident as their gatherings would usually include lighthearted singing and performing music together.

As a young adult, he moved to Monterey, California where he went to work as a gas station attendant. In 1960, he was hired by the California Department of Corrections, where he began his 32 year career in law enforcement. For eleven years he worked behind bars as a correctional officer, sergeant, and lieutenant were he risked his life while forging life-long friendships with his co-workers. During this time Ron also served his country in the US Army as a military policeman and became a member of the Elks Club.

Ron married Christa in 1968 and moved his family to the Central Valley in 1971. His career shifted to that of a parole agent, where he received many commendations for his service to the State of California. Ron was very fond of country life and animals. He enjoyed years working with horses, cattle, and the land. For a time he maintained a small business cutting and selling firewood to many loyal customers. As a man of high standards, he worked hard to instill that in his two sons.

Never one to back down from a confrontation, he had a very convincing presence with others,but was also tender and caring to the core. He knew everyone because he invested himself in others and was always willing to lend a hand, a tool, or an opinion.

He was fortunate to be able to retire early and enjoy 25 years after his career. Although retired, Ron was never idle. Whether helping a friend or rebuilding a broken down lawnmower, he was always very active.

Ron enjoyed traveling with Christa in their motor home and forged many friendships with other RV-ers throughout California. He spent winters in the desert and always enjoyed playing cards and socializing with others. He and his wife had daily afternoon breaks at 3:00 p.m. when they would play Cribbage. He is survived by the love of his life, his wife, Christa, of 46 years; his two sisters, Kay and Sally (Doug); his three sons, Jim, Rick (Denise), and Ron (Kelly); nine grandchildren; and three great-grandchildren.

Ron is preceded in death by his parents, Harlan and Wilma Schumacher; his sister, Sylvia Joseph; and his brother, Larry Schumacher.
