Sending love and heartfelt condolences to Mr. Schani’s family. I haven’t seen him in many years but was fortunate to have his as my teacher and gymnastics coach. He thought me one of the most valuable lessons during this time regarding mindset and I have used it (and always think of an appreciate him for it). At a time when I was scared of trying something new and pushing myself on an event, I said and exasperated “I can’t”. He took me aside and calmly said, instead of thinking/saying “I can’t, (if you really want to do something) I want you to go forward from this moment on thinking/saying “How can I?” I will be forever grateful for his advice, it has been monumental in my life. Love and prayers, Alicia Chovan

This really is sad. Janet and family my heart goes out to you. I just saw him shopping this summer at Marshall’s with Janet. He was such a cool teacher for me in health. I won’t be able to come because it’s too hard I just lost my husband in September. But know that I really thought a lot about him cause he let you know he really cared about his students. Much love Rosie

I knew David through his father that married my aunt Louise. He was always a kind and gentle person. I am leaving this because I will not be able to attend his service. Wishing his wife and family my heartfelt condolences.

Sending deepest condolences to the whole Shani family. I knew Dave and Janet for many years because I had their children in school. Such a wonderful family and Dave was always so very friendly. I would run into them out and about and many times at Andrea's and we would always have a wonderful conversation. I am so very sorry to read this and wish the family many wonderful memories to carry them through this difficult time. I am out of State and will not be able to be physically at the service for Dave but will be keeping all of his family in my thoughts and prayers.

We both worked with Dave at Lincoln JHS. He was a dedicated educator and cared for his students and colleagues. He had interesting and funny stories he would share about his journey as an educator and coach . He was well respected by his colleagues. Prayers of comfort and peace for his entire family.

If you were a student at Lincoln Middle School/Tremper High School/Kenosha Unified within the last 34 years you knew Mr. Schani as a substitute or Physical Education teacher. As a student you hoped that when your teacher was gone that Mr. Schani would be your sub. I had both Mr. Schani as my gym teacher, substitute teacher, and through taking continuing education classes at Carthage College. You will forever be in my memories Mr. Schani, and missed by thousands of students.

I am once again just ugly crying as I type this. I have loved this family for 40 years. Is an adult it was so hard to call Dave, "Dave" because he was always Mr. Schani to me. I only saw you guys for the summer and I always knew how hard he worked to support the family. How he always made us laugh, how sometimes his silly would drive Janet to roll her eyes at his antics and say "Oh Dave." He was always working so hard, on the house, in the yard, on cars, at all sorts of jobs for the summer. He truly loved Janet and was so very proud of his four children and his grandkids. I am blessed to have been to so many birthday parties in the summer and to have recently reconnected with you all. I can make it up to Kenosha next week due to work, but know I am there in Spirit. Dave was one of the good guys and I have no doubt that he will be watching from above, so keep making him proud. Look for the little signs that he is walking with you. I love you all with all my being!! Hope

I first met Dave when he was my health teacher at Tremper many years ago. He was always smiling. We later reconnected through the Werwie/Oster families. It was very evident that family was important to him. I’ll always remember his kindness and seeing him shopping at the grocery store when I cashiered there for a short time. God bless you Dave and all your family and friends who will miss you. Kathy
