On the early morning of Sunday, July 26, 2020 at the age of 87, Richard Carl (Dick) Schottlaender passed quietly in his sleep to go to heaven due to complications of a recent stroke and COPD.
Rich was born November 29, 1932, in South Milwaukee, WI. After high school, he enlisted in the army and served in the Korean War for two years in Japan. After an honorable discharge, he attended Carroll College in Waukesha, WI and obtained a degree in Biology. It is here that he met and fell in love with Peggy Starin, and they were married July 14, 1956. He worked in heavy construction for Allis Chalmers, which later became Fiat-Allis as a service rep and moved into sales for the same company, traveling all over the country. Near the end of his career, he worked for Motor Works as a remanufactured engine sales representative, serving Montana after then he worked for Northern Line Layers.
His interests in life included hunting, fishing, gun collecting and antique cars. He was in the process of restoring a 1922 Model T Ford (if anyone is interested in resuming this project, let us know). He loved to help and lend a hand to anyone with a need, especially the elderly. He and Peg have been active members of Faith Builders at Faith E for many years.
He is survived by his wife of 64 years, Peg and three daughters: Denise (Pat) Lemke, Aileen (Jon) Rogers, Michelle (Wade) Pickering and five grandchildren Kelli (Mitch) Wardell, Gage and Austin Pickering, Kim Lemke, and Codi Rogers.
Memorials may be sent in his honor to the Special K Ranch, Blue Creek fire department, IDEA or a charity of choice.
Services will be held at Faith E 3145 Sweetwater Dr. Billings, MT on Wednesday August 5 at 11:00 A.M. Condolences may be shared online at

So very sorry for your loss, Peg. This is a big loss for us too, but I’m sure Richie found my dad, Pete, in heaven & they are telling stories from their days back in So. Milwaukee & laughing together right now. I sure enjoyed every time you came back “home” and my trips to Montana to see you.. You both have been treasured family friends since I was a young child. My dad passed away 11 months ago & now Richie has joined him. Their “gang” will get back together in heaven. My thoughts and prayers are with you, your children & grandchildren. With deepest sympathy, Jan Sahagian-Crandall

I always enjoyed hanging out and talking to Uncle Rich! I talked to him last year and he had just been down to Wyoming to see UP's big steam locomotive making its trip across the country. Sounds like he was living his life to the fullest as long as he could. I will sure miss him!!!
