  • Manfred Gustav Schroeder, age 71, of Steuben Hill Road, passed away peacefully on Monday afternoon, March 25, 2013, in Faxton-Saint Luke's Medical Center, New Hartford. He had the comfort of his loving family by his side.
    He was born on September 14, 1941, in Danzing, Germany, son of the late Gustav F. and Ida Koschnik Schroeder. Manfred came to the United States with his family, was raised in Herkimer and graduated from Herkimer High School. He furthered his education, attending Mohawk Valley Community College. For three years, he worked as a radio technician for the General Electric Company in Utica.
    On April 26, 1962, he entered the US Navy. He proudly served until July 9th, 1965, when he was honorably discharged, attaining the rank of E-4.
    On July 20, 1974, he was united in marriage with the former Maria Teresa Balcarcel in Herkimer.  Mr. Schroeder had a strong belief in God and was a member of Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church, Herkimer.
    In his leisure time, he enjoyed tinkering with electronics, especially Ham Radios. To all who knew him, he will always be remembered as a sincere, simple caring man who faced life with a positive outlook. He will be greatly missed by his friends and family.
    Surviving him are his devoted wife of thirty-nine years, Maria; one son, David Schroeder; a sister, Edeltraut Salewski, of Herkimer; a grandchild, Mason Britow, of Rome; and many nieces, nephews, great-and great-great nieces and nephews.
    Funeral service for Mr. Schroeder will be on Monday, April 1st, at 11:00 a.m. in Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church, Herkimer, with the Rev. Ann Zimmerman, Pastor, officiating.
