It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of James Schoenhofen Jr. (March 8, 1953 – January 7, 2024) of Las Vegas, Nevada, a man of distinguished resilience, authenticity, and generosity. “The world breaks everyone, and afterward, some are strong at the broken places,” Ernest Hemingway once wrote, and this sentiment could not have been truer for James. His life was a testament to the strength that comes from embracing one’s passions, overcoming obstacles, and serving one’s community with pride and honor. James was a dedicated and proud carpenter who found joy and peace in his craft. His hands, always busy but never idle, shaped, built, and mended countless structures throughout his career in construction. His work was not just a job, but a reflection of himself—sturdy, reliable, and crafted with meticulous care. He was a man who believed in the power of hard work and the artistry inherent in his craft. He served proudly in the Coast Guard, a testament to his courage and his unwavering commitment to protecting his country and community. The love and respect he had for his work, both as a carpenter and a serviceman, was a defining aspect of his character and will be remembered by all who knew him. James leaves behind a loving family who will forever cherish his memory. He is survived by his siblings, Randy Leavitt-Bradley, Susan Strohl, Tim Schoenhofen, Judy Campbell, and Colleen Stanton. He is predeceased by his parents, James and Joan Schoenhofen. As we think of James, let us remember the words of Ralph Waldo Emerson, “It is not length of life, but depth of life.” James’ life, though cut short, was one filled with depth, service, hard work, and love. His legacy will continue to inspire and guide us. We invite you to share your memories of James, and upload any photos you may have of him, on his memorial page. In these shared stories and images, we can find comfort and celebrate the life of a man who touched so many lives.
