Leslie Arthur Schuer, son of George and Dena (Cassen) Schuer was born March 15, 1923 on a farm near Emery, SD. Leslie attended school in Emery and graduated from Emery High School. He worked on the farm following graduation.
Leslie was united in marriage with Evelyn Haak on June 5, 1949 in Howard, SD. The couple moved to their current farm near Harrisburg, SD in 1954. Leslie farmed until the age of 72. They continued to live on the family farm until about 5 years ago, when Leslie and Evelyn moved to Sioux Falls, SD. He enjoyed farming and didn’t consider it work. He would always say, “I play in the dirt”. The couple also enjoyed traveling and have visited all 50 states and 16 countries.
Grateful for having shared his life is his wife of 67 years, Evelyn; his children, Paulette (Tom Bulfer) Bell and her children (Brad, Robin and Travis), Richard (Julie) Schuer and their children (Craig and Lorelie), RoSchell (David) Vinzant and their children (Rachael, Renae, and Ryan), ten great grandchildren, and his sister Velma (LeVern) Jacobson.
Leslie was preceded in death by his parents, George and Dena Schuer, his brother, Wilbur (Lucille) Schuer and grandson-in-law Kier Murphy.
