Larry D. Schuler
November 8, 2020

Larry Douglas “The Bear” Schuler, 66, of Phoenix, passed away on Sunday, November 8, 2020. He was born to Benjamin and Gertrude (Wolffe) Schuler on August 4, 1954 in Syracuse, NY. Larry graduated from C. W. Baker High School in Baldwinsville. After high school, he attended North Country Community College in Saranac Lake. He retired from Niagara Mohawk after working for many years in various sectors. Larry volunteered for the Greater Baldwinsville Ambulance Corp and was also employed by the Baldwinsville Police Department.

Larry loved all things outdoors. He loved hunting, fishing, boating and snowmobiling. One of his greatest loves was the Baldwinsville Police Department Canoe Trip where he spent 23 years giving kids the opportunity to experience the natural beauty of the Adirondacks alongside some of his closest friends.

He was a loyal friend who would give you the shirt off his back, would drop everything in an instant to help others and was the one constant in this crazy world. Larry was one in a million.

His greatest love of all was his 4 grandchildren who affectionately knew him as Papa Schuler. As a troublemaker himself, he loved to rile up all of the kids and then send them home for their parents to deal with. His greatest gift to them was all of the experiences he gave them. They had many sleepovers, camping and fishing trips and many eventful boat rides. The kids would constantly fight over who would be Papa’s co-pilot. His legacy will live on through them in all of their shenanigans for years to come.

He is reunited with his favorite traveling partner and the love of his life of 37 years, Linda L. (Weller) Schuler. They are finally getting the opportunity to continue their adventures together.

He is also predeceased by his siblings, Penny Lukasiewicz, Gary Schuler, Jerry Schuler; and his parents.

He is survived by his children, Kim (Josh) Osborne, Jeff (Megan) Schuler, Stacy Schuler and Kevin Schuler; brother, Kenny Granzow; in-laws, Donny and Diane Weller; grandchildren, Mason, Noah, Lindsay, and Cole; and several nieces, nephews, and cousins.

Calling Hours will be held Friday, November 13, 2020, from 4 - 7 PM, at Allanson-Glanville-Tappan Funeral Home, 431 Main St., Phoenix, NY. A Graveside Service will be held at Jacksonville Rural Cemetery, Saturday, November 14, at 11 AM. In light of the recent spike in Covid cases, a Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.

Jacksonville Faith Community, P.O. Box 254, Phoenix, NY 13135

Dear Kim, Jeff, Stacy, and Kevin,
I am so sorry to read of your dad's passing. Unfortunately, I didn't see the paper until this morning. Your dad (and mom) were good role models as evidenced by the good "kids" all of you are. Please know that I will be keeping all of you in my prayers as you try to get use to another new normal. Thank goodness, it sounds like, your kids will have wonderful memories of their Papa Schuler.

With my most sincere sympathies to all of you.
Mrs. (Dorie) Armstrong

Wendy and I as well as all of our daughters are so sad to hear of the passing of our Dear Friend Larry Schuler Larry was one of the most caring people that we have ever know. He drove our box truck with our auction tents and equipment for many years to the auctions, wanting no pay in return. We had to force him to take some small pay for all of his help. The boys Jeff and Kevin worked for us as well when they were young and Kim danced with our daughters in the Baldwinsville, NY Dance Corps when our daughters were in school with her back in the 1990's. The Parents were in charge of the floor covering and Larry's Beloved Linda was right there making sure everything was perfect for the Girls Dance Routine! Larry rode up with me this last spring, to his most Favorite Place in the World, The Adirondacks! We went up to the town of Jay and I contracted an auction to do this past summer. We had a great chat for 4 hours up and 4 hours back and reminisced about all the fun times we had at the auctions, over all those years! Wendy and I and all of our family would like to express our deepest sympathies to Kim and Josh, Jeff and Megan, Kevin and Stacey and all of their family and friends! May Larry's Soul and all the Souls of the Faithfully Departed, Through The Mercy of God, Rest In Peace! Amen!
