December 11, 1923 - March 10, 2017
San Antonio, Texas | Age 93
Bryan Schiller was born on December 11, 1923 in Corpus Christi and died Friday, March 10, 2017 in San Antonio, Texas.
Bryan and his parents, William Bryan and Evelyn Carver Schiller, moved to San Antonio when he was one year old and he was a lifelong resident of this city.
A 1941 Jefferson High School graduate, he attended Texas A&M and then Tulane for Midshipman School. He served honorably in the U.S. Navy during WWII as a Lt. (j.g.) Commander, and saw action in the Pacific Theater, the invasion of Okinawa. When he returned after World War II, he continued his studies at the University of Texas where he earned a B.B.A. and at St. Mary's School of Law for his J.D. Bryan practiced law in San Antonio for over 40 years.
He was a man of strong faith and demonstrated a deep love of his God, his country and his family throughout his life. He was married to the former Norrie Brett for over 65 years. A modest man with a strong sense of integrity, a kind and gentle spirit, and a subtle "twinkling" sense of fun, he enjoyed all sports (whether as a participant or spectator) and was good at all to which he put his hand. He loved "The Horns", the Spurs, the Cowboys, and was an avid golfer and a long-time member of Oak Hills Country Club.
Bryan was preceded in death by his wife, "Norrie"; his parents and his grandparents.
He is survived by his son, William B. Schiller II; and his daughter, Susan Brett Schiller; his grandson, Bryan Scott Schiller (Amanda); and granddaughter, Sarah Laurin Schiller; and their mother, Laurin Schiller.
Visitation will be held on Wednesday, March 15th from 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM at Porter Loring on McCullough.
