Bryan G. Schilling, 61, of Rib Mountain, passed away on Monday, March 13, 2023 at Aspirus Hospice House, Wausau.
Bryan was born May 14, 1961 in Oshkosh, son of Phyllis (Bauman) Schilling, Rib Mountain, and the late Glen Schilling. On June 21, 1986 he married the love of his life, Elizabeth “Beth” Luebke at St. Andrew’s Lutheran Church, Oshkosh. She survives.
For more than 32 years Bryan was a teacher at Stratford High School, Marathon High School, and D.C. Everest Middle School and Junior High School where he taught business education. He was also a WIAA official from 1979 – 2022. One of his favorite highlights while officiating over the years was to have his son reffing with him.
Bryan had a big heart, which he used unconditionally to love his wife and children. Bryan supported his children in every activity they were involved with. He simply was there for everything for the kids!! Bryan was a lifelong Packers, Brewers, Bucks, and Badgers fan and never shied away from any other spectator sports on TV or the radio. He fulfilled his lifelong dreams of attending a Super Bowl game in Minneapolis with his son and watching the sunset over the Pacific Ocean with his daughter.
The last part of Bryan’s legacy is the devotion to his wife Beth. She was his biggest supporter since day one. Together they raised their family to love and support one another. A bond that will never be broken.
Survivors include his loving wife, Elizabeth “Beth” Schilling, Rib Mountain, his daughter, Sara Schilling, Portland, son, Eric Schilling, Weston, daughter-in-law, Kirsten Rock, Weston, loving mother, Phyllis Schilling, Rib Mountain, and his mother-in-law, Barbara Luebke, Oshkosh.
Bryan was preceded in death by his father, Glen, brother, Todd, and his father-in-law, Rev. Merton Luebke.
