Theodore T. (Terry) Schall, Jr., 91, of Glen Mills, PA (formerly of West Deptford, NJ) died peacefully, surrounded by his family, on April 11, 2022.
Born in Toledo, OH, to Theodore T. (Ted) and Helen S. Schall, Terry was raised in Wilmington, Delaware and spent many happy summers visiting family, fishing, reading, and working at Dolle’s in Rehoboth Beach, DE. He graduated from P. S. DuPont High School (’48) and served in the U.S. Air Force as a Staff Sargent in Japan during the Korean War (1950-1954). He then earned a bachelor’s degree from the University of Delaware (’58), where he met his future bride and made lifelong friendships as a member of the Phi Kappa Tau fraternity.
Following several years in sales with Armstrong Cork Co. in Salt Lake City, UT, Terry spent 34 years at Drexel University in Philadelphia, where he traveled the Mid-Atlantic region as an ambassador of the Cooperative Education program and placed Civil Engineering students in their co-op assignments. He treasured getting to know the students and having the opportunity to help launch their careers. During that time, he also earned a Drexel MBA (’66) and worked as an administrator in the Evening College.
Terry was happiest when playing a game of bridge (Life Master), golf, tennis, table tennis, pool, or bocce ball. He loved relaxing with a fishing rod, road trips, long walks, and good books. Since 2010, he delighted in all of these activities while making new friends at Maris Grove Senior Living.
Predeceased by his parents, brothers Thomas and Bruce, and his wife of 46 years, Roberta Lee Hannold Schall, Terry is survived by daughters Stacy Schall and Laurie (David) Milone, grandchildren Julie (Andrew) Arrington, Cameron Planchard, Alexander Milone, and Nicholas Milone, sister-in-law Mary Ruth Talley, nephew Gregg Talley (Paul Waga), and nieces Marilee Talley (Paul LaRocca) and Eileen Ball.
