The News-Times - - BUSINESS -

Gre­gory Sch­nuck, lov­ing hus­band, fa­ther, son, and brother passed away on May 14th, 2019 at the age of 64. He en­joyed many, many things. Among those things were spend­ing time with his fam­ily, honey bour­bon, bands such as Um­phrey’s McGee, Yes, and Pink Floyd, movies, sail­ing, gardening, cars, movie the­atre pop­corn, Fresca, choco­late with sea salt, the Detroit Tigers, tech gad­gets, chicken salad (one kind specif­i­cally), golf, zen­tan­gles, Hawai­ian shirts, sewing, a good deal/sale, and Her­shey’s kisses. Not nec­es­sar­ily in that or­der. He was a handy­man when­ever needed and was al­ways cre­ative with com­ing up with so­lu­tions to some of the tough­est ob­sta­cles and ques­tions. Greg was also great at grow­ing veg­eta­bles, tak­ing care of flow­ers, cook­ing, and mak­ing any­one’s day with his laugh and smile (it truly was in­fec­tious). He loved to tell sto­ries and en­joyed hear­ing oth­ers tell theirs, shar­ing new bands he re­cently dis­cov­ered, at­tend­ing con­certs, and highly en­joyed his Mini Cooper and pickup truck. He was an avid list builder, al­ways metic­u­lously pre­pared for what­ever the job, trip or event, mak­ing check­lists and get­ting the best gear. He was gen­er­ous to his friends and fam­ily and to the causes he sup­ported. Over the last thirty years, he worked for Boehringer In­gel­heim with a team that has be­come ex­tended fam­ily mem­bers and re­cently had been spend­ing time at the Ridge­field Play­house merg­ing his love for mu­sic and vol­un­teer­ing. Greg was born on Novem­ber 12, 1954 to Robert and the late Polly Sch­nuck, in Michi­gan. His im­me­di­ate fam­ily is his wife, Bar­bara, his daugh­ter, Katie and her hus­band Joshua, and two pets, a bas­set hound, Droopy, and a cat, Apollo. He has three brothers, Chris, Tim, and Perry, along­side their fam­i­lies, as well as loved by his en­tire fam­ily of nieces and neph­ews. Tremen­dous and heart­felt thanks go to the truly ex­cep­tional doc­tors, nurses, and team mem­bers at Danbury Hos­pi­tal’s Emer­gency Depart­ment, Danbury Hos­pi­tal’s In­ten­sive Care Unit, and Ridge­field Am­bu­lance, who pro­vided much more than just med­i­cal care for Greg, but also pro­vided a peace­ful and com­pas­sion­ate en­vi­ron­ment dur­ing his tran­si­tion from this life to the next. Greg’s legacy is more than enough for any great life and our ap­pre­ci­a­tion and love will never fade. There will be a cel­e­bra­tion of Greg’s life for his fam­ily, friends and col­leagues from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on June 4, 2019 at the Meet­ing House Pub in Bethel. Bring your sto­ries, your pho­tos, your love, and your best laughs.

In lieu of flow­ers, me­mo­rial check do­na­tions in Greg’s name can be made to Tar­ry­wile Park Au­thor­ity. Where he loved to hike, walk the dog, and en­joy na­ture.
