Robert R. “Bob” Schade, age 87 of Darlington, formally of Blanchardville WI passed away on Saturday, March 9, 2019 surrounded by his loved ones at Lafayette Manor in Darlington. He was born October 19, 1931 in Madison, WI. Bob was united in marriage to Shirley L. Johnson on August 23, 1959 at the Little Brown Church in the Vale in Nashua, IA. Bob lived and farmed in Platteville Township with his beloved wife before moving to rural Blanchardville where they farmed for 30 years with their family, retiring to rural Darlington in 1997.

Bob is survived by his children: Michael R. (Amanda Wilkinson) Schade of Platteville, WI, Kathy L. (Gary) Blosch also of Darlington, and Anita B. (Leo) Schoepp of Blanchardville; his grandchildren: Lucas (Chelci) Schade, and Tiffany ( Dan Nolden) Schade, Krista Blosch, Kari Blosch, Kelsi (Alex) Erickson, Kameron Blosch; Amanda (Dillon) Weckerly, and Kacey Schoepp; his great-grandchildren: Wesley and Maci Nolden, Jordan Schade, Owen Erickson, with Baby Weckerly and Baby Schade on the way; one brother-in-law; Richard (June) Johnson of Platteville, WI; four nieces and nephews: Allen Johnson of Platteville, WI, Jolene (Jim) Rech of Lancaster, WI.

Bob was a past member of Blanchardville United Methodist Church in Blanchardville, WI. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, rangering, playing cards, and traveling out west. Bob was a simple man who enjoyed the solitude of the outdoors. He enjoyed his time chatting with his friends while they drank coffee at the mini-mart. Bob’s most enjoyable moments were spending time with his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. They all loved him dearly and will miss him dearly.
