Harley D. Schoenrock

Harley  D. Schoenrock Harley Davis Schoenrock, age 42, of Formoso, Kansas passed away September 27th, 2018 at his farm home in Formoso, Kansas. Two days prior to his death, Harley had suffered internal injuries due to a fall but decided to heal at home rather than seek medical attention; an example of the personal toughness with which he approached life’s challenges.

His parents, David Clair and Nancy Ann Schoenrock gave birth to Harley on July 23rd, 1976 at St Mary’s Hospital in Manhattan. Harley then grew up and flourished in the freedom and openness found at the family’s rural home near Wamego, Kansas. He learned to ride a motorcycle at age seven, later developing a passion for restoring old motorcycles. He could fix anything, and refused to be left out of any family endeavor even as a toddler. He displayed an independence and confidence when tackling work that startled the family.

Harley graduated from Rock Creek High School in May 1995. He joined Laborers Local Union #1290, working construction from 1999 until 2003 finally being offered a job supervising a work crew. He wanted to be his own boss, however, declining that job and began working independently for himself. Happily doing this for some time he eventually settled into raising and selling pigs near Formoso, Kansas. His skills and abilities allowed him to transform a small drab farm into an operation he was very proud of.

Harley was outgoing and had many friends. Perhaps his loyalty to his father and his friends was his most outstanding trait.

Harley is survived by his parents David C. Schoenrock of Formoso, and Nancy A. (Curtis) Leiker of Wamego, sisters Ida (Reid) Dreitz of Wichita, and Caitlin (Robert) Lawson of Wamego, grandfather Clyde Ebert of Wamego, and nieces Ava and Cera Dreitz of Wichita. He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Emil and Genevieve (Cuthbert) Schoenrock, and grandmother, Geraldine (Dekat) Ebert.
