Bryan Keith Schoonover, 42, of Topeka, passed away Friday, November 22, 2019.
He was born April 6, 1977, in Topeka, Kansas, the son of Albert Wayne and Beverly Alita (Reese) Schoonover. He attended Highland Park High School.
Bryan owned and operated Schoonover’s Auto Repair and was later employed by LKQ in Topeka.
Bryan married Amanda Dawn Cunningham on May 1, 2010 in Topeka. She survives. Other survivors include three sons, Joseph, Kason and Blake Schoonover; his mother, Beverly Schoonover; two sisters; two brothers; and many friends who were like family.
Bryan enjoyed spending time with his family, hunting, fishing and helping family and friends. He was an avid K.C. Chiefs, Royals and KU Jayhawks fan. His true passion was working on cars or anything with nuts, bolts and moving parts. He relished the challenge of figuring out how things worked and what it took to fix them when they broke.
Bryan would always make himself available to friends and family in need on a whim. Going the extra mile and helping people was a part of Bryan’s personality. He was a fixer and it made him feel good to help others in need. He was the type that would expect those he helped to return the favor when it came time for him to need some help. Bryan was a loving husband, father, friend, son, and brother. His earthly presence will be truly missed by all who were lucky enough to cross his path.
