Obituary for Melvin Albert Schoening

December 7, 1921 - January 28, 2018
San Antonio, Texas | Age 96


Melvin Albert Schoening passed away on January 28th, 2018 at the age of 96. He was born on December 7, 1921 in Mission, Texas.

Melvin enlisted with the Army Air Corps in 1942. Honorably discharged after an accident in the Philippines in 1945, he returned to Texas to marry Kathryn Grey Bennett on January 24, 1946. They recently celebrated their 71st anniversary and Kathryn was certainly the love of his life.

His career in the civil service lasted over three decades at Kelley Air Force Base in San Antonio. Melvin's passion was woodworking. Whether whittling, building furniture, or constructing, you could always count on him being industrious and building something.

Kindness and patience were his abundant traits.

He is survived by his wife Kathryn, son Glen Schoening, grandson Cris Gibson and his wife Rhonda Padon Gibson, and great granddaughter Addi Gibson. He is preceded in death by his daughter Karen Gibson.

Funeral services will be at Crossroads Baptist Church 11am to 1pm, Saturday February 3, 2018.
