Obituary

John Henry Schaeper, 95, of Robinson, Texas passed away Tuesday, March 10, 2020. Funeral services will be 2:00 p.m. Saturday, March 14th at Pecan Grove Funeral Home, 3124 Robinson Dr., Waco, with Rev. Larry Krueger officiating. Interment will immediately follow at Robinson Cemetery. The family will receive friends one hour prior to services at 1:00 p.m. at the funeral home.

Mr. Schaeper was born on December 1, 1924 in China Springs, Texas to the late Adolf and Clara (Hempel) Schaeper. He served in the US Army 475th Infantry during WWII in China/Burma/India, receiving a Bronze Star and the Chiang Kia-Shek Victory Medal. John married Gladys Zoch on November 26, 1949 and they lived in Houston for 50 years before moving to Robinson. John loved working with his hands and was always tinkering with something. He was a cabinet builder for unscaled homes by trade, but his passion was restoring antique Ford cars. He served as a board member for the Model A Club in Houston and participated in parades around Texas driving one of his collection of cars. He was a member of St. Paul Lutheran Church of Waco, Texas, where he served as a volunteer. He and Gladys loved traveling, especially in their RV, and saw many sites all over the US and Europe.

Other than his parents, he was preceded in death by his son, Robert Dale Schaeper, two sisters Mildred Koester and Doris Shows, and his brother, Ed Schaeper.

Survivors include his wife of 70 years, Gladys; daughter, Kay (Don) Craft of Columbus, GA; granddaughters, Kerri Testement of Jefferson, GA, Kelli Wynn of Columbus, GA; step-grandson, Danny Craft (Jaime) of Smiths Station, AL; five great-grandchildren: Katie and Ryan Testement, Christopher (CJ) Wynn, Tori and Ashton Craft; as well as a sister, Lou Cude; along with numerous nieces and nephews.

John Henry was my cousin. My strongest memory of him was when he came to Grandmother Schaeper’s house on leave in the Army. He was headed overseas in the War, and even though I was only a boy, I wanted so badly to go with him. I really admired his spirit. My deepest sympathies for his family.

I was so sorry to hear of John Henry's passing. He was a bright spirit to all. He loved to share his experiences, especially about the War and his word working. John Henry was a cousin to my father, Walt. My deepest sympathy to Gladys and his entire family.
