William Wayne

Schroeder was born Au-

gust 19, 1929, to Edward

and Reba (Hardacre)

Schroeder, on the family

farm, south of Parshall.

He attended country

school and graduated

from Parshall High School

in 1947. He then contin-

ued his education at

Minot State before return-ing to Parshall to farm.

Bill was united in mar-

riage to Myra Hovey, in

Parshall, on June 19,

1949. They made their

home on the family home-

stead where he and his fa-

ther farmed and ranched.

Bill also drove semi-truck

during the winter months.

Bill and Myra moved to

Minot in 1992 after retir-

ing and later moved to as-

sisted living at The View

in 2009. However, Bill

continued to help his son

with harvest. Myra passed

away in 2012. Bill was

then blessed with a

second marriage to

Delight Macias in 2014

who later passed in 2019.

Bill loved fishing and

enjoyed grouse hunting.

His favorite hobby was

woodworking from build-

ing furniture, crafting

items like pens, and whit-

tling. He whittled an en-

tire town of caricatures

with many resembling

family and friends. Bill

even convinced The View

to convert a room to be

used just for woodwork-

ing. He had many talents

which also included play-

ing piano.

Bill had a great sense of

humor and was truly a

gentle man. He enjoyed

visiting people and being

active. He serviced on the

Fertile Township board

for many years and was a

member of the United

Church of Christ in

Parshall. He had a strong

faith and would watch

weekly service when he

was unable to attend.

In 2019, Bill moved

back to the family home-

stead to live with his son,

John. With his license

renewed, he took almost

daily drives to view the

lake and to check their

land. He was able to enjoy

his final harvest in 2020.

Blessed be his memory

among us.
