Peter Allen Schommer, of Ellsworth, WI, passed away peacefully at his home on January 4, 2021, at the age of 69. Peter was born to Jim and Delores (Kinneman) Schommer on April 1, 1951 in River Falls, Wisconsin.  After graduating from High School, Peter joined the United States Navy and served 2 years on the USS Long Beach as a marine mechanic.

Peter was a jack-of-all-trades. He could fix and build just about anything. He always had may projects to work on, and many times they didn’t get finished for a while. Peter enjoyed the peacefulness of the outdoors, being in the woods hunting and on the water fishing.  Family time was what Peter cherished the most, with many weekends spent at the family cabin in Bone Lake.

Peter will remain in the hearts of his loving children, Peter Schommer, Brittany Schommer and Philip (Mercedes) Schommer; his grandchildren: Samantha, Hailey, Emery and Marlene; siblings: Mike (Cheryl) Schommer, Karen (Rick) Keys, Linda (Cal) Pechacek, Barb (Roman) Hendrickson, Diane (Dan) Richmond, Doreen (Doug) Eichman, Jim (Roxy) Schommer; along with many nieces and nephews.

Peter was preceded in death by his parents, Jim and Delores Schommer.

A Gathering of Family and Friends will take place 2:00 – 5:00 PM Friday, January 8, 2021 at Ridgetop, W10516 US Hwy 10, Prescott. Internment will take place at a later date at Northern Wisconsin Veterans Memorial Cemetery.

Memorials may be directed to the family or to: The Family of Peter Schommer, O’Connell-Benedict Funeral Home, 130 North Grant St, Ellsworth, WI  54011.

Funeral services are entrusted to the O’Connell-Benedict Family Funeral Home of Ellsworth (715) 273-4421.

  • Rest in peace my friend and shipmate. Did not know him personally but served with him on the USS Long Beach during the 1970 time in the gulf off Vietnam. Fair winds and calm seas my shipmate.

  • As far as I`m concerned you left us too soon but I guess the good lord had other plans for you. Fly high and rest easy. You`re already missed so much. Have the cards ready for when I see you on the other side. RIP.
