William "Bill" Michael Schumann

Feb. 1960 – Jan. 2019_x000D_
William Michael Schumann, also known as Bill Schumann to many, sadly passed away at age 58, on January 15th, 2019.  Bill was born in Burlingame, California in February of 1960 and moved to Turlock, California at age 12 with his mother (Betty), Father (Robert) and his only older brother (Robert).

Bill graduated from Turlock High School in 1978 and married the love of his life, Kim Schumann, after 10 years of dating. They had two beautiful daughters (Kayla Schumann – 25 years old and Karly Schumann-22 years old). Bill’s whole world was his 3 “Special K’s”, whom he leaves behind. Bill was the most selfless man and many can attest to this.

Bill was self-employed and managed commercial property, but his favorite job of all was making his wife, Kim, and daughters, Kayla and Karly extremely happy. There was not a thing in the world he wouldn’t do for them. He started each of their cars every single morning (no matter how early it was), made his wife coffee each morning, and did anything in his power to make his daughters’ dreams and aspirations come true. He created a business for his oldest daughter, Kayla, (BODYBEST.FIT, a beautiful gym custom-designed by him, located in Turlock). He was also planning on designing a salon for his youngest daughter, Karly, when she was ready to take on a business.

Bill was very passionate about sports, especially basketball, and would follow local athletes and would be so proud to see them succeed. He volunteered to help anyone with anything they needed, at any time, day or middle of the night. Although his death was sudden and very shocking, he was doing what he loved; pulling an all-nighter (the usual) at his daughter Kayla’s gym trying to make it as perfect as possible.

Bill leaves behind his wife, Kim, two daughters, Kayla and Karly and his older brother, Robert Schumann.

Bill’s Celebration of Life will take place at 10 a.m. Saturday, January 26, 2019 at Calvary Baptist Church (Monte Vista Ave, Turlock). Please help us celebrate his life and show him the love and honor he deserves. He was truly an amazing man, father, and husband.  Please share your memories at www.AllenMortuary.com.

    I only met you both a few times. I was Bill’s brother’s Roberts friend in San Francisco. I thought you both had it all, such a sweet couple. I am so sorry for your loss. I always like you both. I moved back east in 1993 and my life has gone on. I wish I had been able to stay in touch. I was the Flight Attendant friend of Robert, Again I am so sorry for your loss. May God help your hearts heal. Sincerely, David Fournier

    Mr. Shumann was such a gentle, humble & kind soul who did all he could to those he knew & loved. His pride & forever joy were his Princesses Kayla & Karly and his Queen Kim. We were so fortunate to bond a wonderful friendship with the Shumann’s when our Alexandria played basketball with Miss Kayla. Whether it was at practice, tournaments or day off extra drills he was so constant with his calming encouraging of coaching from the sidelines.
    Our Allie learned so much from his knowledge. He always treated Kayla’s team mates like his own daughters. “Call me Bill”… he would tell us.
    Last time we passed one another around town….he stopped to share how much he loved our daughter and was so glad they reconnected after being both away at college.
    He said… “It’s makes Kim & I so happy that Allie, Kayla & Karly could just pick up right where they left off!” He was so happy Allie chose his talented Karly to work her magic and create a special “updo” for one of Allies bridal showers.
    We are all so fortunate to have had the opportunity to know & love him. Your smile will forever sparkle upon us!
    His beautiful memories will forever fill your hearts Kim Kayla & Karly & Family. ❤️
