In September of 2012, Dave Schroeder went missing.
With this tragedy came the realization that without a body, there is no death certificate. Without a death certificate or body, Dave is considered alive in the eyes of the state and in all business matters. This fact has put the Schroeders in an interesting dilemma….wait the standard 7 years until the state declares he is dead or approach the courts with proof that he is not alive, but a body cannot be recovered. The family has decided to approach the court. Unfortunately, it also means the family will have to pay lawyer fees for a declaration of death.
There will be a benefit for the family on Saturday, September 21st from 1-5pm at the Holmen American Legion.
There will be food, a silent auction, and fun for the kids.
Donations can be sent to Journey Lutheran Church:
2703 Sand Lake Rd.
Onalaska, WI 54650
Or the Schroeder Emergency Fund at Park Bank:
P.O. Box 100
