I had the honor of serving Rich, as a tutor, these past years at the Neurological Center. But I must admit that he taught me more than I could have taught him. He persevered with a determination that always amazed me. We would share our faith with each other and he would always get a light in his eye when we talked about the Lord. He especially liked to talk about the music he was playing each month for Mass.

After he had lost the ability to speak, he came in one day excited about a version of "Amazing Grace" that he had heard (it was put to the tune of "House of the Rising Sun"). I had to check it out on Youtube. It was beautiful, so the next time he came in I sang it for him. He just smiled that lovely grin of his. I will always remember that time with him.

May he rest in the Lord's loving embrace, and may you know His peace!

Rich was one of the most honest people I ever knew. I would take my car in and tell him whatever it needed and never had to worry about being over charged. He was always a pleasure to wait on in the bank. I am a better person because of knowing Rich Schus

We are so sad to hear of Rich's passing. He was a super nice man and worked on our cars for years. Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire family.
