Al Schuele, 88, of Omaha, NE died Tuesday, March 31, 2020 at the Josie Harper Hospice house.

Al was born on December 2, 1931 to Alfred Sr. and Mary (Van DeWalle) Schuele in Cedar Rapids, NE, where he grew up and attended St. Anthony’s Catholic school and Cedar Rapids High School.  He joined the U.S. Army and served as an infantry scout during the Korean War.  After returning from Korea, he attended Creighton University in Omaha, NE, where he earned a BS in Business Administration.  While attending Creighton, he worked full time as a baggage handler for United Airlines at Eppley Airfield where he met his wife, Geraldine Petersen.  They were united in marriage on November 23, 1957, at Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church in North Omaha.

    Al is a good friend, He attended West Omaha Diamond Kiwanis meetings each and every week for as many years as I can remember. He enjoyed golf with the KI members, he looked forward
    to bringing Marylyn to our KI dinners, he told me he appreciated his recognition for his Korean
    War efforts. Just a great guy to be around. Thanks Al for the use of your truck for our garage sales. You will be missed. Tim
