Gary Schoenberger was born on July 30th, 1963, in Chicago, IL to George and Erica Houser. Moving to Oregon at a young age, where he spent the majority of his life. He met Helen Mills, and they had two wonderful children; Stephanie and Steven.
Gary was a passionate man, something his dog Joey can attest to. His passion came out in the form of music, as he learned to play classical pieces on the Piano by ear. He also had a passion for car’s, or anything that had an engine in it. Although, he would grumble when he saw rust on his car’s. Whatever Gary set his mind too, he followed it through to the end, a rare trait.
Gary is survived by his children, Stephanie Houser and Steven Houser, his father George Houser, step-mother Lenora K. Houser, brother Eric-Joseph Houser, his dog Joey, and multiple nieces and nephews.
Gary is preceded in death by his mother Erica Irmgard Schnell, grandfather Ray Artemus, grandmother Gertrude Mary-Lou Miller and adopted mother, Edna Schoenberger.
