Obituary for William C. Schley Sr.

William Clifford Schley Sr., age 72, passed away on Sunday December 2, 2018 after a short battle with bone marrow cancer. He died peacefully at home with his family at his bedside. Born in Cheboygan in 1946, Bill was one of 16 children born to Joseph and June (Anderson) Schley. He married Patricia Hansen on December 7, 1968 at St. Mary’s Catholic Church and they made their home in Cheboygan.

Bill graduated from Cheboygan Catholic High School in 1965 and served in the U.S. Army in Vietnam from 1966 until 1968. He received several medals for his service, including the Vietnam Service Medal with four Bronze Stars, Army Commendation Medal, Bronze Star Medal, Purple Heart Medal, Valorous Unit Award, and Good Conduct Medal as well as several other medals and badges.

A lifelong resident of Cheboygan, Bill worked for more than 25 years at H & H Tube Manufacturing and was a longtime member of St. Mary – St. Charles Catholic Church. An avid ball player, Bill played men’s fast pitch softball and enjoyed hunting, fishing, and the outdoors. He loved tinkering and could often be found in the garage working to fix or repair something. A caring and generous person, Bill always gave to those who needed help.

Surviving are his four children, Lori Kasubowski of Alanson, Dawn (Jeff) Beaubien, William Schley Jr., and Eric Schley, all of Cheboygan; grandchildren, Samantha (Jeremey) Raymus, Ashley and Jessica Beaubien, Anna LaCross, Nick, Jack, Ben, and Sophia Kasubowski, Brooke (Chris) Demeuse, and Isabel Schley; as well as many great grandchildren.
