SCHUMAKER, Larry “Wade”

January 19, 1965 – Calgary, Alberta
July 17, 2013 – Calgary, Alberta

Wade Schumaker, beloved husband of Linnet Schumaker, passed away suddenly on Wednesday, July 17, 2013 at the age of 48 years.

Wade is survived by his loving wife of twenty-two years, Linnet; his daughter Rebecca (Alex); son Matthew; father Larry; sister Kari Bulger (Colin), niece Keanna, nephew Patrick; sister Terrill Schumaker, niece Breanna, nephew Dustan; and their families. Wade is also survived by his father-in-law and mother-in-law Howard and Jeanette Homan; brother-in-law Howard (Tracy), their daughters, Megan and Madison and son Mason. Wade was predeceased by his loving mother Carol in 2004.

Wade was a son, father, wonderful husband, mentor and great friend to everyone who had the pleasure of knowing him. His smile, wit and complete honesty are just some of the attributes that drew so many people to him. Wade loved his animals, fishing, cooking and restoring his 1965 Volkswagen bug. Another of his many favorite past times was playing hockey, so it’s fitting that the moments leading up to his passing he was “playing the game” with his friends. Wade had the good fortune of being surrounded by many family members and friends, especially lifelong friends, Cam Richardson and his wife Kathy. Wade was employed with Trans Canada Turbines where he made many friends and was well respected by his co-workers.

Those wishing to pay their respects may do so at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY’S, Chapel of the Bells (2720 Centre Street North) on Sunday, July 21, 2013 from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m.

Funeral Services will be held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY’S, Chapel of the Bells (2720 Centre Street North) on Monday, July 22, 2013 at 2:00 p.m. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made in memory of Wade’s mother Carol Schumaker, as this would be his wish, to the Tom Baker Cancer Centre, www.albertacancer.ca. The family would like to express their gratitude to the caregivers at the Foothills Hospital, Fire Department and EMS. A special thank you to Alex Dandonneault for all of his care at the time of the emergency.

In living memory of Wade Schumaker, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Chapel of the Bells, 2720 CENTRE STREET NORTH, Telephone: 403-276-2296.

    Thinking of you all at this very difficult time. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. We saw our children develop friendships, go to school together and become “best of friends” through hard times and good times. The bond that was started with our families at the beginning will always be there, and will carry on forever. We can cherish and hold the memories we had with Wade. Whether it was sitting around the backyard with friends having a BBQ, sitting around a round table at the school discussing the well being of our children, or having him use his handy skills installing a hot water tank, and many more. He will be GREATLY missed by Linette, Matthew and Becky. Cherish your memories! Rest in Peace.

    Wade is a person who you could depend on, he would go that extra mile for you. He laughed, he joked, he lived free.

    Wade was outgoing, caring, compassionate, trustworthy, and everyone’s friend, including mine.

    My tears fall knowing I can’t have anymore good times with you and I can only carry the fun memories we all shared.

    You will never be forgotten, I am honoured to have known you and to call you my friend. Thank you for being you.

    Thoughts and Prayers to those who’s lives you touched. You will always be missed. God Bless.

  28. I joined Wade’s hockey team 5 years ago. I was a complete stranger to everyone and Wade welcomed me with open arms. 5 years later, we were working together registering our team for winter.

    We called ourselves the old guy line, often saying we were 150 years old combined… We rarely scored and we had a lot of fun harrassing each other.

    I can’t believe you’re gone my friend.
    Who am I going to pass to now???

    To Linnet, Matthew and Rebecca, thank you so much for sharing your husband/father. We were truly blessed to have known him. My heart goes out to you all.

    I worked at TCT with Wade and his wit and laughter was always there. He never got mad or sad and he was a true friend to me, always. When I retired from TCT he told me I would miss the place but I have to say that for the first time in your life you were wrong old buddy. I find it hard to believe you have left us so soon, way too soon. You are one of the nice guys and I hope you are looking down on us all and looking out for us. You are gone but not forgotten.

  33. My most heartfelt condolences to all at this time of tragedy. Wade and I were very good friends in our youth we shared many adventures mostly because everyday with Wade was an adventure. He never failed to put a smile on your face. Wade and I had the good fortune to grow up together in a great community and Wade was very much a part of that community, he was one of the people who made it special. He truly will be missed. I have spent much of the last few days remembering the times that Wade and I shared, he will always bring a smile to my face. I regret that I will not be there to say goodbye to my friend and in many ways my brother but just as lifes circumstances has kept apart the last several years it still does today. I miss you Wade and I will miss you every day.
