Carl W.  “Junior” Schademan

Heaven gained another angel as Carl W. “Junior”  Schademan passed away peacefully on November 12th, 2017 with his loving family by his side.  Carl was born March 24th, 1929 in Pender, Nebraska to parents Charles and Anna (Kratke) Schademann.
 
The large Schademann family settled in Toppenish WA, after travelling from Nebraska during the Great Depression.  On October 22nd, 1950, he married the love of his life, Kathryn Lee Gibson at the Kittitas Community Church.  Carl and Kathryn first lived in Toppenish where he was employed at U&I Sugar Company.  In 1951, Carl and his brothers started Schademan Brothers Construction Company in the lower Yakima Valley.  Carl and Kathryn moved to the Kittitas Valley in 1959 where he began Schademan Construction.  Carl worked hard all of his life and was a very talented builder. He took pride in mentoring and shepherding young men in the building trade and improving his community one project at a time. His completed projects stand all across the Kittitas Valley as a tribute to his passion for community development.
 
Carl was a member of the Moose Lodge and the American Legion. He also served the cities of Toppenish and Kittitas as a volunteer fireman.  He was extremely dedicated to the success of the Ellensburg Rodeo where he spent countless hours behind the scenes putting in work to make sure the show goes on.  In 2012, Carl received the Driver Award as recognition of his contribution to the rodeo and his community.
 
Carl was a devoted family man and attended nearly every sporting event or 4-H activity his grandkids were involved in. He enjoyed spending time with his family and loved caring for and tending to all animals, especially his loyal dog Sadie.  Carl also enjoyed going to Legends Casino with his sisters.
