Butch Schrier Passed Away 8/17/08

#1 Post by AFriend » Tue Aug 19, 2008 11:05 pm

Just wanted to post here and let the nitrous community know that Butch Schrier passed away suddenly on Sunday.

He had been sick with a cough, and had trouble breathing to the point where 911 was called. It is very hard to believe he is gone. (Also note that his mother had just passed away on Friday, and he had travelled back to So. California from North Carolina.) Here is more information from his ex-wife:


Thank you all for your heartfelt wishes for our loss. I have included below the obituary which will be published on Thursday in the Press Telegraph (local paper in Norwalk CA area).

Albert John Schrier, Jr.
June 3, 1956 - August 17, 2008
Anaheim, CA

Albert, known to his friends and family as Butch, was born in Southern California in June of 1956 to Frances and Albert J. Schrier, Sr. Butch grew up in Norwalk and attended Santa Fe High School in Santa Fe Springs. He started his career in the automotive industry at an early age as one of the youngest drag race crew chiefs. His love for all things automotive continued throughout his life including hot rods, riding dirt bikes, drag racing, building engines and developing new automotive technologies.

He was survived by his daughter Tammy, sons A.J. and Robert, and granddaughter Kamryn. Butch was a Brother, Uncle, Father, Grandfather to some, but most of all, he was a friend to all.

Viewing will be held on Thursday August 21 at 5pm at Chapel of Memories. Services for Butch will be held on Friday August 22 at 11am at Bethany Church in Long Beach, CA. He will be laid to rest at Little Lake Cemetery in Norwalk.

Butch was a member here on this board. He didn't post very often but did stop in from time to time. I talked to him numerous times on the phone in years past, he was thinking about putting on a Nitrous seminar in the Tulsa or Springfield area at some time but it didn't pan out. I never got the chance to meet him in person, but he seemed like a great fella and was a very knowledgeable nitrous guru that went out of his way to help people out with their tune ups and info when he could.

RIP Butch and Godspeed..
