Obituary for Burt Schoneman
Burt Allen Schoneman, 60 of Platteville, completed his life’s journey and went to be with the Lord on Friday April 7, 2017 at home with loved ones by his side.

Burt served as a volunteer for the Platteville Fire Department which he enjoyed very much. He was a member of the United Methodist Church of Platteville where he served on the board of trustees until his death. Burt loved to bowl and enjoyed fishing trips in the wilderness. He had a special knack for making small engines run so he was always busy with someone’s problem. In 2008 he reunited with Gayla Norgren who was his best friend and care giver until his passing.
