“His struggle was like knight against dragon.  He went on in courageous fashion, and seemed to have the upper hand on several occasions, however its power was too great in the end.  Despite his loss, it was sealed in its lair and all he cared for were protected.”

“The handsome knight went out to slay the dragon.  He fought so valiantly, the sword was drawn and it looked as if the knight might win, but the dragon was stronger.  It was then the knight put down his sword.”

Two riffs on a theme from his son and his wife.  Though our hearts are heavy, your memory will be with us always.

John Marshall Schreiner: a wonderful husband and father.  He was a professor, writer, guitarist, jokester and precious soul that passed from this life towards a new journey on July 20, 2020. He was a devoted teacher who cared deeply about his students and their learning.  He had myriad interests, many of which he shared with those closest to him, including his songs, stories, and projects.  He always tried to help those around him when he was able.  He is survived by his wife, son, and daughter.  But his family and friends went well beyond that, and all will miss him.  We will eat our dessert first in your honor.  Until we meet again, our love to you.

    The warmth, the humor, the unmatchable twinkle in those eyes — we’re gonna miss you, John, but we bless our luck to have had you in our lives.

  • Melanie Amano says:

    Uncle John, I hope you know how much I loved and admired you. I admire the hunger for knowledge and trying new things that you had, as well as, your desire to use that knowledge to help others. Thank you for always bringing so much love, joy, humor and positivity into any space you entered. I already miss your infectious laugh and your giant hugs, but I will remember them forever, and carry them in my heart next to all the words of encouragement you have imparted over the years.

    Rest easy, Uncle John. We keep you in spirit and love.
