William Schuck Obituary

On Saturday, February 17, Guillermo Schuck III y Dawn—universally better known as “William “ or usually just “Bill” at his own insistence—passed away peacefully in Celebration, Florida, following a years-long battle with dementia.

Born in New York City in 1928, he lived his first decade in Ponce, Puerto Rico, where his fire chief uncle used to give him and his cousin Ray rides on the town fire engine to go get ice cream along the beach. Bill moved to Miami for his teen years, staying in Coral Gables to attend “the U,” where he graduated with both his BA and JD in only six years. Drafted immediately after, he did a short stint at Fort Bragg—according to him, mostly writing wills for GIs shipping off to Korea—then returned to Miami and fell in love with a cute nurse named Nancy. He followed her north to the then tiny hamlet of North Branford, Connecticut, where they were married. He would go on to live there for over three decades, raising three children, before returning to Florida to retire in Deland for another 30 years.

Bill was a proud Hurricane, Army JAG lawyer, Scout Master, church deacon, 33° Mason, three-time Worshipful Master of Trumbull Lodge #22, Eminent Commander of New Haven Commandery #2, Shriner, and crossword enthusiast, but I have no doubt he was proudest to be a beloved husband, uncle, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather. He spent the last few years constantly searching for his late wife. Although he will be missed, he has no doubt finally found her again.

Bill was preceded in death by his wife, Nancy, and daughter, Gail, and is survived by his sons, William Paul and Jason, his granddaughter Meghan, grandson Nicholas, and great-grandson Max.
