Richard (Dick) Charles Schoeneck, 78 of Stuart, Florida (formerly Syracuse, NY) passed away March 10, 2017. Dick, a former New York Central Railway employee, Syracuse Fireman and Onondaga County Deputy Sheriff was an avid train and fire engine lover. A co-founder of Rail City Fire Department in Sandy Pond, NY he owned and operated numerous antique fire engines including 1928 and 1941 Seagrave Hook and Ladders and an 1887 hand pumper. Always the first one to arrive and the last one to leave, he will be remembered for his love of a good party, spinning an engaging tale and his infectious snickering laugh.
