Warren William “Sonny” Schoville was born March 8, 1943.

He served his country honorably as a paratrooper in the 101st Airborne from 1965-1967.

Mr. Schoville will always be remembered as a man of his word. He worked for Ag-Bag until their closure as the maintenance supervisor, and held a similar position with Vickers Manufacturing in Omaha. He also had a business doing siding work, and installed siding on many homes in the Blair area.

He was an excellent golfer, avid fisherman and loved working with his hands doing woodwork, gardening and mechanical repair. His work ethic and outdoor activities kept him busy right up to his untimely death.

Always living life to the fullest, helping others and providing for his family are attributes that served him well.
