James Henry Schauster, 75, of Carbondale, Colorado, passed away April 1, 2014. James was born Nov. 25, 1938, in Glenwood Springs, Colorado, to Henry and Jewell Schauster.
Jim was a beloved husband, father, grandfather and friend. He never knew a stranger, if you were around him five minutes you felt like an old friend. Jim’s favorite thing was to spend time with his family at the cabin in the great outdoors. He was an avid outdoorsman and loved to share those activities with those he cared about the most. Jim was always up for an adventure, enjoyed life and embraced whatever came his way.
Jim is survived by his beloved wife of 51 years Jean Schauster; his mother Jewell; sons Mike, Alan (Stacy), and Tom (Vickie) Schauster; and grandchildren Randy, Natalie, Jenna and Lauren Schauster.
