Bob was born on October 5, 1956, in Willmar, Minnesota, the son of Kurt and Martha (Fruhling) Schueler.  He grew up on a farm near Raymond, was baptized and confirmed at St. John's Lutheran Church, graduated from Raymond High School in 1974, and became engaged in farming with his family.  On August 26, 1978, Bob was united in marriage to Cathy Lynn Erickson.  They made their home on the family farmstead and were blessed with two children, Amanda and Ryan.   In the 1980's, Bob stopped farming and rented out the land.  He then worked at Hanson Silo Company for over 20 years and then at Arnold's in Willmar for over 14 years, before retiring on May 31, 2023.

Bob was an active member of Tripolis Lutheran Church, singing in the choir, serving on the church council and other committees.  He served for 9 years on the Kandiyohi County Fair Board.  He enjoyed farming, hunting, fishing, bowling and golfing.  Bob bowled in church league and golfed with the Kerkhoven men's group for several years.  He was also a MN Vikings fan...most of the time.  Bob loved his family, especially his two granddaughters and would do anything for them.

He is survived by his loving wife, Cathy; his two children, Amanda Schueler of Hutchinson and Ryan (and Amber) Schueler of Willmar; two grandchildren, Quinn and Evy Schueler and three brothers, Dean (and Sharon) Schueler of Sioux Falls, SD, Don (and Shirley) Schueler of Willmar and Ron (and Donna) Schueler of Willmar, besides other relatives and many friends.

He was preceded in death by his parents. 

MEMORIES  OF  BOB:

Bob spent many falls deer hunting with his cousins, brothers and Dad. Bob liked to tease Ryan about the year that Ryan went “up North” to get the big buck and Bob stayed home. Bob went out on the farm and got a nice buck in about 15 minutes. Ryan came home with nothing.

Bob whistled a lot, and he sounded pretty good. Especially if you liked hearing the same 2 lines of a song over and over.

Some of his happiest times were spending time with his family and friends. There was always a lot of laughing (if you’re a Schueler you know what I mean) and good times. His laugh was contagious and always made everyone else laugh along with him.

Bob loved farming and enjoyed doing anything outside. If he hadn’t been a farmer, he would have loved to have been a cowboy (maybe even riding alongside John Wayne).

Bob loved his granddaughters and would do anything for them. Once he even got a construction crew to stand in a circle with him and his granddaughter and hold hands and walk around the farm together because she thought that would be a fun thing to do.

One thing Bob was known for was moving my parents, our kids and a few friends. He bought an enclosed trailer so he could get the job done. We were allowed to bring things to the trailer, but he did the packing, and he was really good at it. It was guaranteed that everything would arrive in one piece with Bob doing the packing.

He loved the MN Vikings………most of the time.

Bob was younger than his brothers so he claimed that they would never play with him. So, he got his mom out in the sandbox to play tractors with him. This is where he learned to blink his eyes really fast so he could pretend it was lightning and he needed to get the tractors into the shed.
