EDWARD JOHN SCHADE
June 9, 1935
July 29, 2020
Long time Palmer Lake resident, Edward Schade, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by his loving family and loyal "heart beat" Beau, on 07/29/2020. Ed was born to George and Ora Hatton Schade on June 9, 1935. He is survived by 2 sisters, Mary Fields (Jack) and Ora Shay (Jim). He married Judith (Judy) Heskett on August 10th 1958. They had 4 children Ora (Kathy) Wilson (Teddy), Susan Gillin (Greg), Bill Schade (Nancy), and Amy Light (Brian). They have 10 Grandchildren and 21 Great Grandchildren.
Ed taught school in District 20 for 34 years, where he also drove the "out of bounds" kids to school, coached several sports, and mentored many students. He was an avid bowler, fisherman, dog lover, and card player, but his proudest accomplishment was his family. He loved to have his family with him for every occasion possible. He was a member of the Masons and the Al Kaly Shrine. He was preceded in death by his mother, father, daughter Susan, and 2 great grandchildren.
A memorial service will be announced at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to Shriners Hospital, www.lovetothersue.org.

Beloved Mr. Schade- yes, he taught more than math, he showed me the value of resilience, perseverance, and pride in my work and demeanor. I will always be thankful for his influence.

We are so sorry to hear about Ed's passing. I had so much fun working with him at the bowling alley. Much love to the Shade family.

Ed was an invaluable friend to my family and a personal hero of mine. He's one of the main reasons I became a teacher and even in his old district 20. When he would drop by to see my dad, he would also end up helping me understand very frustrating junior high and high school math. His presence in my life, and my families, was a blessing and will be deeply missed. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family.

I loved him. He was my math teacher at Air Academy Junior High 1984. He helped me not be so afraid of math and he made me feel social. I’m a teacher and I really think about him often !

So sorry for your loss. From the very first moment that Sheila, Katie and I, were so kindly 'adopted' by Ed and this family our first Christmas in Monument (20060, his welcoming heart stands out forever. I can't imagine the void in your hearts today, I bow my head and ask the God of Heaven to comfort all of you.

I will always cherish our last conversation. To hear you tell me you know that my Oma & Papa ( Jean and Richard DeBlois) would be proud means the world to me. Thank you for being my other “Gramps”. Love you forever.

Judy, so sorry for your loss. Ed was always so good to call my brother, John Hutte, to catch up. I guess they can talk all they want now.
