William (Bill) Edward Schumack passed away on January 24th, 2021 at home surrounded by family in Medford, OR. William was born on February 8th, 1951 in Pearcy, CA, and grew up in the Eureka, CA area before living the majority of his life in Crescent City, CA. William had a reputation as a great fisherman and was known for his generosity and kind heart. Those that knew Bill, express the impact he had on them and the good man that he was. He will be sorely missed by friends and family.
Bill was preceded in death by his mother Ann Fitzgerald, father Orion Schumack, sister Patricia Yancey (Schumack), and wife Cathy Schumack (Brown/Lynch/Albro). As a loved father, Bill leaves behind sons William Schumack II, James Schumack, David Schumack, and daughter Kimberly Schumack. Grandpa Bill also leaves 14 grandchildren; Patience Schumack, Nicolas Schumack, Cassandra Schumack, Corbyn Schumack, Brianna Schumack, Dawson Schumack, David Schumack II, Jazmine Roberts, Jared Roberts, Ronald Evans II, Kyle Evans, Alexander Evans, Alyssa Evans and Brooke-Lynn Clary. Great Grandpa Bill leaves Ashlynn and Bryson Schumack. Bill also leaves step-children Nathan, Josh, Shane and Adam Brown and Aries Lynch.
A celebration of life will be held for Bill later this year near Big Flat and all interested will be welcome to attend.
