Al Schofer-large in life

   The big guy, the one that always had an opinion or jumped on either side of a disagreement passed away.
   Davisburg resident and decorated retired Navy Master Chief Allen P. Schofer passed away following a illness.
   Adults will know and remember him for his presence at just about all community events in he Hamlet of Davisburg.
   The Davisburg Rotary, the place he ate his supper every Wednesday night-provided it was something this picky eater would eat-will remember him for all of his volunteering for anything that stood for Rotary or would be of help to someone.
   A Rotarian and Paul Harris Fellow, Schofer also received a high honor for his efforts on behalf of Boy Scouts throughout the country.
   Always a proponent of the local Davisburg Troop, 192, Schofer stuffed many a hotdog into buns along the way to helping fundraise for the Scouts.
   What happened when the weekly Rotary meal was something Schofer didn't care for? The cook always made sure to have peanut butter and jelly on hand to appease his appetite.
   Al Shofer will be missed not only by the kids-now young men-that he helped guide through their younger years, but the adults that counted on him to be there for the bake sale, garage sale, auction, or anything else that would help others.
   The community will have an opportunity to honor Schofer October 27 at the 4-H Fairgrounds Youth Activity Building in Davisburg, late afternoon/evening of that day.
   A church memorial service will be held October 13 at the First Presbyterian Church in Flint at 10a.m. Burial will follow Monday, October 15 at the Great Lakes Veterans Cemetery. The exact time in not known.
