I adored Pastor Schowalter. I first met him & Marj) officially when I sang with the Hales Corners singers. My parents, Don and Marion Seeger were friends of his for many years through their work with their churches. We asked him to officiate at their funerals and he gave us such comfort, since he knew them both well. His beautiful smile and kind demeanor meant the world to me. My sympathies to Marj and all of his family. Carla Seeger

My heart goes out to the Schowalter family. I loved Rev. Schowalter and was inspired by his walk with God during his time in Kewaskum. He was a wonderful pastor and role model. My mind is flooded with memories of choir practice, catechism classes on Saturday mornings, youth get togethers, Christmas caroling, nursing home ministry, and so much more. He was a fountain of youth and so exuberant! You are all in my thoughts and prayers.

Roger and I met Dan and Marj in the lobby of Wisconsin Lutheran College prior to an evening concert. We had such a pleasant time visiting with them that we looked for them each time we attended a musical performance there. We shared many thoughts and ideas with them about many topics, not just music. We enjoyed their company and conversations over several seasons. May Dan rest in peace.

My sympathy to the family. I was an Associate Pastor with Dan at Zion, Milwaukee in the late 1970's. He shared with me his excellent example of pastoral care. He was a devoted, caring pastor. Again, my sympathy. William L. Kesting, Jr.

I am so sorry to hear of Dan's passing. He was a genuine gentleman. Our association began in the early 1980's at Zion UCC when Dan offered to take on our Boy Scout troop.In 1991, Dan assisted at the funeral of our son-truly a sad time for all of us. Still later, we crossed paths as Dan performed with the Brookfield singers and appeared at our retiree's meetings. I will always respect and remember his steady demeanor and hope some of that rubs off on me and others. Rest in Peace, Craig V. Hasting Deputy Inspector of Police (ret) Milwaukee Police Department

I praise God for Dan's faithful service and for what a blessing his whole family has been on the Wisconsin Conference of the United Church of Christ through the years. Grace, joy, energy, intelligence, and faith - all of these gifts are his family's legacy to us all.
