Robert K. Schuster

Robert K. Schuster, 1932 to 2022.

Bob died on Saturday, March 5, in Rumson, NJ. Born in Cleveland, Ohio, he attended the University of Wisconsin and served in the Air Force. At all three venues he was a renown pitcher who threw many no hitters. His curve balls are probably the reason for his slice and dice tennis shots later in life.

He had an extraordinary bond with his four children who treasured his even temper, lack of drama and acceptance of others. He guided them with a gentle hand. Bob was non-judgmental and lived his life without guile or pretense.

A perfect day for him was playing singles tennis with his best friend Stephen or Patrick, followed by an iced tea and then a few laps at the pool. Darn good for 89 years!

He is survived by his wife of 37 years Nancy Haaren Schuster; children Ken (Rosie), Stu (Meme), Lyanne and Ritt; eight grandchildren and two great-grandchildren; sister Ruth Raskin and a niece and nephew.

In keeping with his low-key nature, arrangements will be private. Donations in his memory to a charity of your choice would be appreciated. Thompson Memorial Home, Red Bank, has been entrusted with the arrangements.
