In Memory…

by Paul on December 19, 2014

Schumacher Homes is a family-oriented company; my parents, siblings, and extended family are all part of our corporate team. We pride ourselves in being involved not only with the company, but also with the lives of our employees, and are proud to say that we employ multiple members of several families – some are husbands and wives, some are parents and children, some are in-laws, and some are siblings. VERY family-oriented.

That being said, it is with a very heavy heart that I acknowledge the passing of one of our long-time employees, David Scot Murdock, Warranty Representative of our Ravenna division, who lost his valiant battle with cancer on December 17th at the age of 60. His father, Dave, is a retired Schumacher employee, and his brother, Broc, worked with Scot as a mason contractor in previous years. The entire Schumacher staff has been dealt a very crushing blow at a time of year which is centered around family. I ask for your thoughts and prayers for the Murdock and Schumacher families as we deal with this loss of one of our own.

Rest in peace, Scot…we’ll miss you.



Winter Solstice…

by Paul on December 19, 2014

There is nothing quite as silent as a peaceful, nighttime snowfall in the outdoors. A hush steals over the landscape as the snowflakes softly drift down from the sky. Many people view snow as a nuisance, a hazard, and an unwelcome winter visitor, but some people thoroughly enjoy its presence, and eagerly await the first snowfall.

The winter solstice falls on Sunday, December 21st; at this time, the Sun is directly over the Tropic of Capricorn, giving those of us in the northern hemisphere our fewest hours of daylight, as well as the first day of winter. Psychologically, winter-haters might breathe a sigh of relief - (“Now, the days will start getting longer!”) – although there are plenty of cold, snowy days to come.

For those who view winter as a time to hibernate and wait for spring, grab a blankie and a cup of hot cocoa, light a fire in the great room fireplace, and snuggle in for a movie or good book; there’s just something about a warm, crackling fire that cheers the heart as it wards off the chill. Or, if you’re one of those who loves a nice, long winter walk, bundle up and enjoy the snow – on the outside! Happy Winter!
