Stuart C. Schillig

Stuart C. Schillig, 71, of North Canton, OH, passed away on Tuesday, December 26, 2023, at Summa Health Systems, in Akron, OH.

He was born on March 28, 1952, in Norwalk, OH, to the late Martha Jean (Hickle) and Dr. Robert Stuart Schillig.

After a lifetime of working in the Business Forms Industry, he enjoyed retirement life and traveling with his family. Stuart enjoyed golfing, swimming, and watching sporting events. Most of all, he loved the time spent with his wife, kids, and granddaughters. His positive outlook on life helped pave the way for his children's dreams and endeavors, and his constant reminder to, "Just have fun with it," will never be forgotten.

Stuart is survived by his wife, Colleen (Smith) Schillig who he married August 4, 1984; 3 children, Brittany (Matthew) Hayes of Uniontown, OH, Brandon (Angela Klebe) Schillig of North Canton, OH and Breeann (Austin) Phillips of Massillon, OH; grandchildren, Tatum and Myla Hayes; siblings, Stephan (Sandra) Schillig of Powell, OH, Stephanie Hildebrand of Norwalk, OH, Sharon (James) Schoenegge of Milan, OH, and Scott (Polly) Schillig of Dublin, OH. He was preceded in death by his parents and brother in-law, Ken Hildebrand.
