The Schiller and Thomas families invite you to celebrate the life of Howie Schiller (Jan. 14, 1926-Jan. 9, 2021), aka “The Picture Man,” from 2 to 4 p.m. Sunday at the Bird, Tree & Garden Club Arboretum. Howie left this world a better place on Jan. 9, 2021. He is survived by his wife of 74 years, Barbara (Bobby) Schiller; children, Richard (Judy) Schiller of Cleveland and Laurie (Mark) Thomas of Cleveland; grandchildren, Leah (Drew) Molinari, Jordan Thomas, Amy Schiller and Sam Schiller (Rebecca Stevens); and great-grandchild, Theo Schiller.
Howie’s lovingkindness, generosity, playfulness, joke telling and bright affirming spirit was felt by all who knew him. Howie was adored by many, having built a life of enduring, abiding relationships and community. We look forward to celebrating him in his beloved Chautauqua.
