Harry J. Schaack, Jr.

7/4/1954 — 11/11/2017

Harry Schaack Jr. was born July 4, 1954, in Wenatchee. He passed away at age 63 from complications related to Parkinson's disease on Saturday, Nov. 11, 2017, at Guardian Angel Cottage House in Lewiston.

Harry lived in Orofino most of his life and graduated from Orofino High School in 1973. After graduation, he worked at the IGA in Orofino before moving to Lewiston in 1986.

He married Donna Schmidt on April 16, 1988. Together, they had two beautiful children: a daughter Sara, and son Matthew. They were the light of his life.

He worked many places in Lewiston, but the job he loved so much was at his own business, SMS Financial, and later working at the Lewiston Elks.

Harry was a true gentleman, whether it be teaching his son to always open the door for others, or picking flowers to give to people just to brighten their day. He loved to smile and joke with others and always brought a laugh out of you.

He was happiest when he was outside, whether it was in the woods, in the backyard or taking a walk. He could always be found chopping and counting wood for the winter. He taught his children to be passionate about the outdoors.

Harry is survived by his wife, Donna; children Sara (Devin) Byers, and Matt (Lauren) Schaack. He is also survived by his mother, Janet Schaack, and his three sisters. Preceding him in death were his father, Harry Schaack Sr., and his nephew, Joshua Burton.

At his request, there will be no service, but the family is hosting a small gathering from noon to 2 p.m. Friday at the Barn at Guardian Angel Homes, 2221 Vineyard Ave., Lewiston.

We would like to thank the staff at the Cottage House for taking such good care of Harry. He loved you all so very much.

In lieu of flowers, the family would like any donations to go to the Parkinson's Foundation, 7525 S.E. 24th St., Suite 300, Mercer Island, WA 98040.
