Larry H. Schoenleber, 85, died Tuesday, May 31, 2022. He was born in Shenandoah, IA, to the late Lawrence and Marion Schoenleber. Larry was raised in Manhattan, Kansas and Racine, Wisconsin. He graduated Racine Horlick high school and the Layton School of Art, earning an associate degree.
As a traveling ad man for the Yellow Pages, Larry met the love of his life Dorothy “Dottie” Martin. On October 14, 1967, they were married at St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church in Green Bay, Wisconsin. Larry and Dottie moved to Green Bay to raise their family. He left the corporate art world and went into business for himself to pursue and perfect his own individual form. As a fine artist, Larry specialized in oils, but later dabbled in watercolors. He especially enjoyed painting civil war and cowboy scenes as well as Packers and local sports.
Larry was actively involved in gunsmithing, woodworking, muzzleloading, rendezvousing and SASS (Single Action Shooting Society). He was a devoted husband, loving father, and a constant friend. Larry simply loved his family with all his heart! He was always there for Dottie, escorting her for communion at church and supporting her career while taking care of their disabled son in the home. Larry was present in all the kids sporting and extracurricular endeavors. He coached baseball, basketball, and was a big fan of high school and (Gamblers) semi pro hockey.
Larry will be sadly missed by his children, Mark (Vonnie) Schoenleber, Matthew “Mick” Schoenleber, Anthony (Perla) Schoenleber, Vincent Schoenleber; his grandchildren, Alvaro, Marcos, Jade, Julius, Nicholas, Zoe, and Asher; his brother, Don “Donny” Schoenleber; brothers and sister-in-law, Joanne Martin, David (Louise) Martin, Douglas (Judy) Martin, Deborah (Kevin) Lyons and nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends. In addition to his parents, Larry was preceded in death by his beloved wife Dottie and brothers-in-law, Dennis Martin and Richard “Dick” Martin.
