Lawrence Francis "Larry" Scheuler, 74, of Lake Ozark, died Wednesday, May 26, 2010, at Lake Ozark Regional Hospital.
He was born on January 29, 1936, in Jefferson City, the son of the late Leo George and Matilda Kroll Scheuler. He was united in marriage on August 29, 1959, in Jefferson City, to Linda Hoyer who resides at the home. They celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary with a trip to the Northwest in August 2009. He was a 1954 graduate of St. Peter High School, Jefferson City, and received a Bachelor of Science in Education degree from Lincoln University. Larry was a high school teacher for over 31 years teaching science and chemistry at the School of the Osage at Lake Ozark. He also was a coach for football and golf while teaching, and was affectionately known as “Coach Shu.” He enjoyed a distinguished high school and college football career. In 1953, he received the City's Most Valuable Player award in Jefferson City from the Radio Station KWOS. He received a grant from the National Science Foundation for continuing science studies and, for two summers in a row, packed up the entire family for the thrill of living in college dorm rooms at Northern Illinois University in DeKalb, Illinois. His construction skills enabled him to build their beloved home on Lake of the Ozarks where he and Linda raised their three daughters. He was a member of Our Lady of the Lake Catholic Church. He was an avid fan of MU Football and St. Louis Cardinals. Larry enjoyed camping, hiking, and the outdoors.
