Arthur was born on July 13, 1944, in Marshfield, to Wesley and Lorraine (Eckes) Schar, and was a 1963 graduate of Marshfield High School.

Giese on April 8, 1972, at Holy Rosary Catholic Church, Sigel, Wisconsin.

Art had been employed as an auto body mechanic at V & H Automotive in Marshfield for 32 years until his retirement.

Art was a true outdoorsman and loved hunting and fishing. He was a faithful member of the Sportsman’s Club. More than anything though, he loved his family and grandchildren. He spent his days enjoying picking up the grandkids from school, taking them for ice cream and any outdoor activity, including wagon rides and any games that one could think of. His grandchildren were his world.

He is survived by his wife, Sharon, and their three sons, Brian (Tawnya) Schar and Chad (Rebecca) Schar, all of Marshfield, and Wesley (Wanda) Schar of LaCrosse. He is also survived by eight grandchildren, Michaela, Brandon, Madison, Raddley, Reign, Trystan, Ivory and Evan. He is further survived by his sisters and brothers, Shirley (Mike) Dupee of Arpin, Thomas (Sue) Schar of Marshfield, Cheryl Ann (Tom) Casper of Wisconsin Rapids, Terry (Sally) Schar of Tony, Michael (Peggy) Schar of Arpin, Wayne (Debbie) Schar of Marshfield, Cynthia (Rick) Rennhack of Marshfield and a sister-in-law Deb (Berg) Schar.

He was preceded in death by his parents, a brother Patrick Schar and a nephew Ben Schar.
