William "Bill" Robert Schuering

William "Bill" Robert Schuering, age 64, died on Thursday, January 6, 2022, at Blessing Hospital after a courageous battle with cancer. Bill was born on October 28, 1957, at St. Mary's Hospital to his parents, Dorothy (Gill) and Paul J. "Tony" Schuering. He was a lifelong resident of Quincy, attending St. Francis Solanus and St. John the Baptist grade schools and Catholic Boys High School, later receiving an Associate's Degree from John Wood Community College in Information Technology.

He married Amanda Nagel, who survives him on April 28, 1990, at Trinity United Church of Christ. Bill and Amanda were the proud parents of two sons, Timothy J. "TJ" and Nicholas Schuering, both of Quincy. He was preceded in death by his parents. In addition, he is survived by his brother, Daniel Schuering (Sarah Fox) of Springfield, Illinois, a niece, Emma (Dr. Brent) Massey, Kansas City, Missouri, and two nephews, Anthony D. & Samuel K. Schuering, both of Springfield, Illinois, and a great-nephew, George Daniel Massey.

Bill was an avid golfer, enjoying the frustrations of the game and the company of good friends, most every Wednesday evening at Westview Golf Course. He also enjoyed deer, turkey, and, goose hunting. However, his greatest joy came from spending time with Amanda and his sons.

Bill started his career in manufacturing as a Machinist's Apprentice at Gardner-Denver. He later worked at Midwest Patterns in computerized machining. He then followed in his father's footsteps working at Hollister-Whitney Elevator Corporation for 28 years, as its IT Manager, overseeing information technology for manufacturing and the business of the company.

Funeral services will be held on Friday, January 14, 2022, at 9:30 a.m. in the Duker & Haugh Funeral Home and a Mass of Christian Burial at 10:00 a.m. in St. Francis Solanus Catholic Church. Interment will follow at Calvary Cemetery. His family will greet family and friends for visitation and the telling of funny golf, hunting and life stories at Duker & Haugh Funeral Home, on Thursday, January 13, 2022, from 4:00 until 7:00 PM. Memorials may be made to the Mayo Clinic, the American Cancer Society or QMG Foundation.

Bill and I worked together on many projects and he's a role model for me. He helped us unstuck many times and was always very willing and ready to help. He's tenacious, incredibly strong and audacious. He gave me a lot of strength and pulled me up in many different occasions. He's a real fighter, and he will always be remembered. Thank you Bill and I'm really really sorry for your loss.

Bill was not only a business associate, but also a great friend. As a talented and dedicated IT professional, he certainly left his mark on Hollister-Whitney. If you had a problem to solve...give it to Bill! You've left me with some great memories and a close bond formed during our travels together while working on various IT projects. You'll be sorely missed my friend!
My most sincere condolences to Amanda, TJ and Nick. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
