Laddie Lee Schuh

Laddie Lee Schuh, age 74, passed away Sunday, August 22, 2021 at his home in Tyndall. His Celebration of Life will be 6:00 PM, Wednesday, September 15th, at the Goglin Funeral Chapel in Tyndall. Inurnment will be in Tyndall Cemetery after his celebration.

Laddie Lee Schuh was born March 21, 1947 at Avon, South Dakota to Albert E. and Viola (Berndt) Schuh. Laddie was raised on the family farm and graduated, one of the top in his class, from Tyndall High School in 1965. He continued his education at the University of South Dakota in Vermillion where he received a chemistry degree. As a senior, he was named to the USD Honors Institute.

Laddie returned home to operate the family farm, following the death of his father in 1976. When Laddie retired and moved to Tyndall, he continued to work as a farmhand, a Legend Seeds dealer and operated a state snow plow for some time. Laddie was a great fan of the St. Louis Cardinals although his loyal support was with the University of South Dakota Coyotes. He was a season ticket holder at the Dakota Dome, and rarely passed up an opportunity to attend every sporting event possible.

Laddie enjoyed playing slow pitch softball. He was an ardent TV viewer. He especially enjoyed westerns, old movies and sporting events. He knew the name of every actor in the movies he loved.

Laddie is survived by an aunt and many cousins.

He was preceded in death by his father, Albert; his mother, Viola and sister, Betty in infancy.

Service Program


Always valued & enjoyed our conversations with shared values over the 5 plus decades since our shared SSC Chemistry classes. These meetings ranged from a Saturday job picking up salvage corn ears on your farm to USD sporting events & plus political causes. You were always a good sincere thoughtful caring person. Do so wish we could've had more time for resolving national problems - or just sharing a personal understanding.
