Daniel Schall, II, Passed Away at His Home on Wednesday
On Wednesday evening in Evansville, Daniel Charles Schall II, 53 years old and longtime resident, passed away peacefully surrounded by his loved ones and many of his dear friends and neighbors.
He dedicated much of his time and attention to supporting his children’s athletic endeavors, never missing a game or practice.
Early Life and Education
Daniel Schall struggled as a child with severe speech impediments, including stuttering. It caused him to question God, believing He had abandoned him – only later did he discover He blessed him with music as an outlet to share his faith through song.
Schall has produced 14 CDs and one DVD, specializing in blending old hymns with bluegrass and country gospel music to produce warm and inspirational compositions. He and his wife Linda reside in Zelienople, Pa. but regularly travel around East Coast performing as artists.
Caleb has performed at Holiday Springs RV Resort and First Baptist Church Weeki Wachee Acres before. Trinity United Methodist Church will once again host him for this free event; though we invite people to make a love offering as this event is free. Caleb follows in his father and grandfather’s footsteps when it comes to volleyball – having started his playing career himself at age 4.
Dan was an active and thoughtful member of his community, working for local politicians and the parks department. He greatly valued his friendships made within city government – particularly current mayor Mike Madriaga – as well as spending time at parks with loved ones.
Coach Schall was named 2022 NFHS Pennsylvania Boys Volleyball Coach of the Year and led his team to 16 WPIAL championships and 5 state titles during his time coaching them. Although having his son Caleb on the team could pose potential conflicts of interest issues, Coach Schall manages them effectively.
His practice specializes in patent litigation, such as post-grant proceedings before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board as well as district court and International Trade Commission trials. He also prosecutes patent applications covering various mechanical and electrical technologies.
Achievement and Honors
Schall was both a highly esteemed student and dedicated wrestling coach at Penn State Hazleton, coaching Kelso High School and Lower Columbia Junior College wrestling teams as well as winning National Wrestling Masters Championship titles. Additionally, he served on the Washington State Freestyle Wrestling Association board.
His esteemed equilibrium and considered wisdom were central to his renowned political philosophizing and understanding of the relationship between philosophy, politics, metaphysics and revealed truth. He appreciated how revelation confirmed both their boundaries yet validated their mutually supportive roles within reality.
Dan is survived by his wife Deborah Ann (Talbert) Schall; stepfather Ed Franconia; nieces and nephews including Sam Talbert, Will Talbert, Claire Talbert and Paige Talbert as well as an extended family. Unfortunately he was predeceased by his mother, father, brother and stepmother.
Dan is very involved with his family. He never misses attending their sporting events or volunteering as coach for their t-ball, baseball, soccer and youth football teams.
His son Caleb plays volleyball for North Allegheny Boys’ Volleyball Team and currently they’re working toward becoming state champions for 2021 season. Their teammates provide tremendous support amongst themselves.
Schall delights his audiences while sharing his faith through performance, giving over 200 concerts annually, traveling up and down the East Coast and sharing his story through song. His concerts aim to both entertain and uphold those in attendance.
Schall founded and ran an executive search firm during his career, but since retiring from that endeavor in 2002 he has focused on investing in commercial real estate both for himself and family members.
Schall currently serves on the Board of Essex Property Trust, Inc and boasts an estimated net worth of $5 Million. Additionally, he serves on Pebblebrook Hotel Trust and National Multifamily Housing Council boards and membership.
According to SEC Form 4 filings, Mr. Dumas has made at least one trade in ARDC stock since 2010. On 10 July 2018 alone he purchased 2,500 units at over $40,000. Furthermore, over the last five years he sold more than 84,000 shares.
