When our daughter married into the Schluterman family, Benny and Marie made us feel welcome. He was a blessing to all that knew him and a great teller of tales!
God bless all of the Schluterman family at this time for your loss. Absolutely loved and adored Grandpa Schluterman. He made me laugh at all his great stories, even if i heard the same one over and over. Grandma and Grandpa always made me feel loved and part of the family. I’m so sorry for your loss.
Mike, Kenny and sisters. Deb and I are so sorry for your loss. Benny was one of the most respected man that I ever knew. He was also a good man and he raised a great, god fearing family. I know his children greatly respected him too. When he set a curfew his children adhered to it, ain’t that right Kenny? I know he is up there watching his family right now.
