Obituary for Lee Schumacher

Lee Schumacher
Lee K Schumacher passed away May 16th, 2017. He was 90.

Lee was born August 7, 1926 in Rock Island, Ilinios. His family moved to Brained, MN in the early 1930s where they owned and operated Sandy Point Resort on Gull Lake. He talked about delivering newspapers around the lake as a kid, he also trapped, hunted and fished. Lee was a carpenter, but literally a jack of all trades. There was nothing he couldn’t fix. Lee joined the Army in Jan 1945 and was honorably discharged Dec 1, 1946. He married the love of his life, Juanita Van Sickle Sept 11, 1947. They lived and worked at Sandy Point Resort and raised 2 boys.

In 1974 they moved north and bought Crooked Lake Resort where they had spent their honeymoon 27 years prior. Lee milled his own lumber to remodel and built new cabins. He continued to fish, hunt and took up gardening as a hobby. He helped build and groom a snowmobile trail between the North Shore State Trail and Isabella that became known as the Tomahawk Trail and continued on to Ely. One of his biggest achievements was building a northwoods restaurant in the Superior National Forest out of an abandoned railroad bridge - The Trestle Inn. He and Nita operated the Trestle Inn for 15 years before retiring at the lake.

Lee is preceded in death by his parents, Herbert and Lillie, his loving wife Nita of 69 years and his son Kurt. Lee is survived by his sister Nancy (Bill) Rice, sister in law Patricia (Bob) Lane, a son Daniel, several nieces, nephews, grandchildren, great grandchildren and great great grandchildren.

A private memorial service will be held at a later date.
