Russell James Schrowang


Russell James Schrowang went to be with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on August 18th, 2021 in Dallas, Texas following surgery. He was sixty-seven.

Russ was born in Spring Valley, Illinois on November 5th, 1953 to Elmer Henry and Mary Elizabeth Schrowang (nee Freebern). He graduated from Tonica High School and continued his job at J & L Steel. Russ married Sue Johnson on May 19th, 1979. They moved to Texas shortly thereafter.

Russ, Sue and their family lived in Cedar Park, Liberty Hill, Georgetown, and Sulphur Springs. Russ worked for Pedernales Electric and trucking and logistics companies including Lykes Cartage and most recently Team Worldwide. He had been actively involved in church, the home-school community, and the Republican Party.

Russ is survived by his wife of 42 years, Sue; children, Eric Shirey (Elizabeth), Jeremy (Rebecca), Heidi, Jesse (Brooke), Jonah (Joyce), and Levi; grandchildren Everett, Ephraim, Eliana, Justin, Caitlyn, Russell, Kolin, Izabelle, Malachi, Micah, Amelia, Emmaline, and Matthias; great-grandson, Bentley; brother Michael; sisters Ginny Taylor and Cindy Wagner. He is preceded in death by his parents, sister Christine Znaniecki, and parents-in-law Everett Cornelius and Gladys May Johnson (nee Morris).

Russ was a devoted Christian who loved his family deeply, told great jokes with an infectious laugh, and barbecued the best brisket!

Family gathered for a graveside service at Liberty Hill Cemetery on August 26th, 2021 officiated by Pastor Larry Loden, Grace Community Fellowship, Georgetown, Texas.
