Obituary for Steven J. Schuetz

Steven J. Schuetz, a resident of Milford, died suddenly on May 31, 2008. He was 55 years old. Born on December 30, 1952 in Detroit, to Elmer and Ann Schuetz, he grew up there with his sisters, Leann and Gerri. Following graduation from Redford High School, he worked for several collision shops up until the time he purchased his own shop in Farmington Hills, naming it 8 Mile Collision and Glass. He was a hard worker, was respected in his field, and his co-workers, Ellen, Jim, and Tom will miss his friendship and the camaraderie around the shop.
Steve met Margaret Pathe at Big Boy Restaurant, where she was working as a waitress at the time, and where he got to know her better over his visits to the restaurant. They fell in love and were married in November of 1985. They made their home on Commerce Lake and later moved to Milford, where they have lived for the past seventeen years and raised their daughters, Sarah and Erica.
Steve �knew his cars��and he was a fan of cars--particularly classic cars and his own Hudson, Buick, and Vega. He took great pride and care in the repairing and restoring of all kinds of cars and was known for the specialized detailing that he worked so hard on at his shop. In his spare time he enjoyed riding his Harley, watching Nascar and Pistons basketball, and golfing with his dad whom he had missed dearly since his death a year-and-a-half ago.
Steve will be most remembered as a man with big hands and an even bigger heart. He was generous with his time and was always there to help his family and friends who will never forget this good and loving man.
A Funeral Liturgy will be held at St. Mary Catholic Church, Milford, on Monday, June 9, at 10 AM, with Father Ron Anderson officiating. Friends may visit Lynch & Sons Funeral Home, 404 E. Liberty St., Milford, Saturday, 4-9 PM and Sunday 1- 9 PM with a Rosary at 7 PM. Memorials may be made to the Am. Heart Association or to the Schuetz family. For further information please phone 248-684-6645.
