Funeral for Terry Schumann May 19 in Michigan

Terry Lee Schumann of Escanaba (Ford River) went to be with his Heavenly Father, God, and his earthly father, Duane, on Saturday, May 12, 2018 surrounded by loving family.
Terry was born to Duane and Dona (Watros) Schumann on May 7, 1955 in Austin. He graduated from LeRoy High School in LeRoy, and Dakota County Vocational School in Rosemont.
This is his "dash:"
First and foremost, Terry was a wonderful father. He passed on a great sense of humor, a strong work ethic, and dedication to family and his children.
He was a great partner. In 1986, he married Peggy O'Connell in Stewartville. They moved to Escanaba, Michigan in 1996. Although they lived apart for the last 10 of their 32 years of marriage, they remained close for the benefit of their children and business. She stepped in to care and advocate for him in the last nine months of his life as he battled cancer.
Terry was a talented graphic designer. For the past 20 years, Terry worked closely with the marketing department at the Island Resort and Casino, creating their dynamic image. He also designed billboards for national restaurants and retailers. His design work is still evident all over southern Minnesota and upper Michigan.
Terry was a giving person. He was a member of and served on the board at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Escanaba, including as board president. He was active with Hope at the Inn, designing the logo and publicity, and working tirelessly to further the ministry.
Terry is survived by his mother, Dona Schumann of Spring Valley; best friend and caregiver, Peggy O'Connell Schumann of Escanaba, and their children Molly (Matthew) Bauman of St. Paul, Tim Schumann of Escanaba, and Bridget Schumann of Minneapolis; his two older children, Gabe (Chrissy) Schumann and Kelly (Jered) Iverson, both of Grand Meadow; grandchildren, Dane, Halen, Holly, Hudson, Izzy, and Emmy all of Grand Meadow.
He was preceded in death by his father, Duane Schumann.
Terry's family would like to thank all those who helped Terry along the cancer journey, Peggy's employees of SignUP and Positively for allowing her to spend a great deal of time with Terry, and especially his dear friends, Vince and Jane Walsh. He spent his last nine months at Pinecrest Medical Care Facility in Powers, Michigan, with the assistance of OSF Hospice. The care he received from the staff was outstanding. Special thanks to Cathy (Mabel), Tracey, Art, Katie, and all the others too numerous to mention. He truly loved being there because of all of you.
Terry preferred a simple funeral which will be held on Saturday, May 19, 2018 at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Escanaba with Pastor Hans Tolpingrud of Salem Lutheran Church in Bark River officiating. A lunch will follow in the church hall.
The Schumann family is being assisted by Skradski Funeral Home in Escanaba.
