In Memoriam

Ed Schoenthaler

Sadly sharing the news that Ed Schoenthaler passed away this morning following a 7-month battle with leukemia.  Ed was an Icon in the old car hobby and in the automobile industry and we will miss him dearly.   

Ed parlayed great success as a car salesperson into greater success as a car dealer in the western suburbs of Chicago.  Ed loved toys of all kinds – especially cars.   His passion was Classic cars and he pursued his passion with impeccable taste – establishing one of the finest collections of spectacular automobiles in the area.

I’ve heard Ed comment many times that the greatest satisfaction he had derived from his involvement in the old car hobby was the accumulation of a huge number of great friends – in fact, he was overwhelmed by the sheer quantity of these friends who reached out to Ed when Judy, his wife of 51 years, passed away in 2014. 

Ed was blessed to include Kim Roberts in his life the past two years and they were able to attend many car shows and events together including Pebble Beach in August of 2016. 

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Kim and to Ed’s daughters and family.
