Mark H. Schroeder, 64 of Loganville, GA passed away unexpectedly on January 4, 2021.

Mark was born in Indianapolis, Indiana to Homer & Irene Schroeder on August 9, 1956, the youngest of four children. Mark is survived by his loving wife of 26, years, Diana, two children, Erin & Austin; a brother, Scott (Kim) Schroeder and two sisters, Linda (Lee) Kopulos and Ruth (Larry) Patrick; and several nieces and nephews. Mark was very dedicated to his family. He was very involved with his son and daughter's travel softball/baseball careers and was often found keeping the book and pitch count at every game. He took great pride in keeping a well-manicured lawn. Several times a week, Mark would be tending to his grass. So much so that his neighbor would laugh and say, "Let me go check mine"! Mark was also a sports enthusiast. He was an avid bowler and even managed to roll a few Perfect 300 games over the years. He was a passionate Braves fan who never gave up on his team. Mark played softball off and on through the years, and most recently started playing in a Senior Softball League. He retired from AT&T in 2019 after 35 years of service. Mark thoroughly enjoyed his retirement often saying, "Every day is a Saturday!" as he smiled and chuckled. He was a loving husband, father, brother and friend who will be deeply missed by all who had the privilege of knowing him. A viewing will take place at Phoenix Funeral Services, Inc., on Monday, January 11th from 5pm ~ 7pm. All are welcome. A funeral Mass will be held on Tuesday, January 12th, at 11am at St. Pius X Catholic Church in Conyers, GA. The Mass will also be live-streamed on St.Pius' Facebook and YouTube page for those unable to attend. Due current pandemic guidelines, face masks will be required at both the funeral home and church, as well as the practice of social distancing. A private burial service will take place for immediate family only following the funeral Mass. Interment will be at The Honey Creek Woodlands.

I just read this a couple of days ago in a "Chicken Soup for the Soul" book and thought of Mark. When someone you love becomes a memory, the memory becomes a treasure. Thank you Mark for treasures of all the memories. Love, Sharon

Diana, Erin, and Austin, we want to express our heart-felt condolences to your family. Mark was an incredible husband, father, friend, teammate, uncle, and brother-in-law. One of his many endearing qualities was that he was always there to support his, family, friends, and even those he did not know. May our Lord, bring you peace and comfort knowing he is with our Lord smiling down upon you saying, "I love you." God bless you always, Uncle Mike, Aunt Wendy, Taylor, Casey & Kolbi Gonzales

Mark had a big heart and was a compassionate individual. Mark was a devoted husband to my sister, Diana, and a remarkable father to my niece, Erin and my nephew Austin. I know it is a tremendous and heartbreaking loss for you but holding on to all the memories you have of him will comfort you during this most difficult time. I am extremely heartbroken that Mark is no longer with us but his spirit will always linger with me. I had countless interactions with Mark that I will always remember and reminisce. Rest in peace Gentle Giant! It was truly a blessing to have you come into our lives!! I love you sister, Erin and Austin.

Diana, Erin, and Austin always remember Mark was a good man, he loved you. As long as we have memories of him, he will never be forgotten. Mark and I did not talk to each other much the last few years but, I DUO him on December 11 and had a nice conversation. Afterwards, I thought I'm going to start DUOing him. I did not know that was the last time I would ever talk to Him. Thank Diana for sending the daily hospital updates. They were hard to read, but helpful. I know that Mark is now within the circle of God's loving arms.

I worked with Mark the last 16 years of my career. He was truly a joy to work with, to joke and laugh with, to simply be around. We traded stories of our children, marveled at their accomplishments, and admitted to one another the joy of being involved with our children and guiding them.
He enjoyed his work and performed it with precision and pleasure. Always happy to assist, he was one who could be completely trusted to accomplish the task at hand. He made the work enjoyable.
I know he will be missed by all who knew him, particularly his family, because Mark was first and foremost a family man who loved his family.
My sincere condolences.

That was the last time we talked . I know in my heart that Mark in standing within God's loving embrace. I will miss you Markie forever.
