Stanley J. Schill
He was the beloved husband of the late Eileen R. (Guth) Schill, father of Gary F. Schill of Lucinda and Valerie L. Harkless (wife of James) of Sinking Spring, PA, and grandfather of Joshua Harkless, 16, and Shawn Harkless, 10.
Stan was born on May 3, 1925, and was the son of the late Edward and Adelaide (Fascenmyer) Schill of Lucinda. He was a member of St. Joseph Church in Lucinda and the American Legion in Clarion. Stan served our country as a PFC in WWII and worked briefly as a coal miner and carpenter before eventually becoming a skilled master painter. He was always hard at work but loved coming home to his family.
Over the years, Stan also enjoyed woodworking, hunting, square dancing, playing cards, and golfing. In 1990, he decided to retire to the “Honey Do Company,” and in 1993, after extensive remodeling, Stan & his family moved from Clarion to live in his homestead in Lucinda. At 78 years of age, he became an adoring grandfather, known as “Pop-Pop.’
In addition to his children and grandchildren, Stanley is survived by his sister, Elizabeth “Betty” Cyphert, and four godchildren, Jerry Schill, Dan Cyphert, Bob Becker and Cletus Schill, Jr. He was preceded in death by his parents, wife and five siblings, Augustine Schill, Cletus Schill Sr., Eulalia Schill, Jessica Becker, and Velma Dale.
