Royce Dan Schilling

Dan Schilling, 50, of Roswell, NM, passed away on March 16, 2015. Funeral services were held at Country Club Road Church of Christ, Friday, March 20, 2015. Ministers Doug Austin and Josh Watkins officiated. Interment was in Friona, TX.

Royce Dan Schilling was born Oct. 14, 1964 to Lawrence (LH) and Erma Schilling in Friona, TX.

He married Cathryn Custer on June 11, 1994. They have two girls, Brianna and Kaitlyn.

Dan was a wonderful gardener, enjoyed his plants and could grow anything. He would test his soil, begin his seedlings early and baby them along. As a young child, Dan was fascinated with how things worked and was always taking things apart, especially John Deere tractors. Dan was an avid Oklahoma University fan, who proudly wore his OU cap. He carried on his families’ notoriously famous secret tradition of a homemade BBQ sauce, he took great pride in that, without releasing any secret ingredients, and his homegrown tomatoes were his pride and contribution to the sauce. Dan was a generous and loving man.

While living in Oklahoma, Dan was baptized into the Church of Christ. When he and Cathryn moved to Roswell, NM they attended the Country Club Road Church of Christ. He loved his family very much and will be sorely missed.

Dan was preceded in death by a brother, Perry, and his father, Lawrence (LH) Schilling.

Survivors include his wife, Cathy and his two daughters, Brianna and Kaitlyn. He is also survived by his mother, Erma Schilling (Friona, TX), Roy and Linda Custer (Portales, NM) and his 11 siblings: Linda and Wayne Brower (Brookhaven, Pa), Jim Schilling (Amarillo), Larry Schilling(Amarillo), Sandy and Clarence Hughes (Castle Rock, Co), Vincent and Kathy Schilling (Lovington, NM), Angela and Michael Goodnough (Wilson, TX), Clyde and Debbie Schilling (Lubbock), Kevin and Linda Schilling (Canyon), Mary and Donnie Gustin (Temple, TX), Tom and Nancy Schilling (Lubbock), Brenda and Dub Whitmore (Gatesville, TX); and a brother in law, Chad Custer (Albuquerque, NM)
