Share your Memorial with Family & Friends

On Tuesday, a beautiful soul left this world to join his family above. Michael E. Schutt, Jr., has fought the good fight, has finished the course, and has kept the faith. He is now standing watch above to give protection and guidance to those he loves.

Born June 5, 1987, son of Michael E., Sr., and Marianne Berkosky Schutt, of Exeter, Michael graced this world with his presence. A 2005 graduate of Wyoming Area, where he was a member of the wrestling team, Michael joined the Army National Guard and proudly served his country with honor and courage in Afghanistan. For the past 13 years, he was employed by Chase Prison, SCI Dallas.

Michael was a private man who enjoyed spending time with his family and friends. He had a love for all animals, especially his dog, Howitzer, and cat, “Abra”. Michael enjoyed shooting darts in the league with his dad, gaming, “pushing the button”, and had a passion for Jeeps and “mudding” in the woods. Extremely talented, he won several awards at the Keystone Games for Karate and took first place in Battle for Boston. His impact on the lives he touched will never be forgotten, and his selflessness in his service to his country was once again exemplified by his donation to Gift of Life.

Along with his parents, surviving are many aunts, uncles, and cousins.

Paternal grandparents, James David Schutt and Rosemary DeAngelo, and maternal grandparents, Adam and Eleanor Berkosky, preceded him in death.

Mass of Christian Burial will be held on Monday at 10 AM in St. Barbara Parish, 28 Memorial Street, Exeter, to be celebrated by Msgr. Joseph G.Quinn. Entombment with Military Honors to follow in Cathedral Cemetery.
