Former car dealer passes away

Irvin “Irv” Schroeder, former owner of Irv Schroeder County Motors, died Tuesday at Parkside Home in Hillsboro.

Lyle Ediger, now general sales manager at Midway Motors, began working with Schroeder in 1978 and worked with him until his retirement more than a decade ago.

“He was just a great guy,” Ediger said.

“He was a tremendous supporter of the community and athletics. He never missed a game.”

Ediger said Schroeder was level-headed but also fun, caring, and able to motivate people.

“Hillsboro lost a great guy,” he said.

Visitation with Schroeder’s family will be from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday at Jost Funeral Home. A service will be at 2 p.m. Sunday at First Mennonite Church in Hillsboro.
