Jim Schumm of Beacon, NY, formerly of Westbrookville entered into eternal rest on Saturday, April 11, 2020.

Jim was born on October 13, 1944 to Frank and Ethel Schumm in Brooklyn, NY. Jim loved travelling on trains, planes and automobiles. He graduated from Brooklyn Tech High School, and attended the Academy of Aeronautics in Flushing, Queens obtaining his airplane mechanics license. He went on to serve two-years in the United States Navy as an aviation mechanic.

He started his career repairing cash registers at National Cash Register, followed by a long career with Unisys Corporation, as a mainframe field engineer.

On weekends you'd always see Jim in the driveway fixing or washing one of his 32 cars he wore through over the years. Jim was a member of Holy Name Church in Otisville, for many years. He was also a member of the Deer Park Lions Club, and an archivist with the O&W Railway Historical Society. Jim was also a dedicated volunteer for many years at Bon Secours Hospital in Port Jervis.

Jim is survived by his devoted wife Camilla ‘Marge’ Schumm, and his loving children Lisa & Jim. He is further survived by his brother Steven of Bloomingburg and his sister Jane Heinsman of Plattekill, NY.

We will miss him dearly…

The management and members of the Neversink Valley Museum of History and Technology wish to offer their condolences to the Schumm family in their time of grief. Jim was a member of our museum and could frequently be found sitting in the audience at one of our history talks. Jim had a wonderful sense of humor and would help at our museum on occasion when Marge was employed as a museum assistant. We will all miss Jim. Steve Skye, Chair of the Board of Directors.

I remember working with Jim as he made the eggs at the Neversink Valley Area Museum breakfasts. The eggs were always served with a side of jokes and puns. He was one of the good guys.
