Sergeant Joshua Richard Schoof
Sergeant Joshua Richard Schoof passed away suddenly on Sunday, April 5, 2020 at the young age of 22 years old in Fountain, Colorado. Joshua was born in Sopron, Hungary on November 16, 1997. He died an American Hero.
Joshua is lovingly remembered by his parents, Gina Schoof (Glen) and Mark Schoof (Dawn), his sister Jessica, his uncle Harry (Renea), his dear cousins River and Kennedy and his uncle Robert, as well as his maternal grandparents Don and Sharon.
Joshua joined the Army in June 2016 and went to boot camp in Fort Benning, GA. From there he spent 3 years based in Fairbanks, Alaska. He was recently transferred to Fort Carson, Colorado, 2nd Infantry Division, 2nd Battalion, 12th Infantry Regiment, Headquarters and Headquarters Company and was looking forward to this next chapter of his career. He spent time training in Australia, the Philippines, Japan and California. To say he loved the army and all his brothers is an understatement. And even though he was a true warrior, he had the biggest heart you’ll ever know.
He was very ambitious and full of life. Joshua was an extremely gifted musician. He was an awesome guitarist, singer, trombone and keyboard player. His enthusiasm and energy were always evident, and it was a joy for all to listen to him play.
We know that he is happy in heaven learning German with his Oma and hiking with his Opa.
If friends so desire donations may be made to the Wounded Warrior Project which was very close to Joshua’s heart.
No formal services are planned at this time. Josh will be cremated, and his ashes will be spread in all the places he loved as well as the places he dreamed of going to. There will be a Celebration of Life announced at a future date.
Mullins Memorial Funeral Home & Cremation Service, Cape Coral, is entrusted with final care.
