BLOOMINGTON: Robert "Rob" K. Schoon, of Bloomington, Indiana, aged 33, formerly of Munster, passed away Tuesday, January 29, 2019, from the effects of an unexpected medical event. Robert (Uncle Bob to his nieces) was a 2004 graduate of Munster High School. He earned a B.S. in philosophy and religious studies from Indiana University Bloomington in 2009 and an M.S. in journalism from New York University in 2013.
Robert was a communications project manager for the Vice President of Instructional Technology at Indiana University Bloomington. Known by many for his outstanding musical abilities, and by others for his bowling skills, he was also a regular volunteer at public radio station WFHB in Bloomington.
Robert is survived by his parents, Ken and Peg Schoon, his brother and sister-in-law Jake and Heather, nieces Sophia and Emily, loving girlfriend Calin Neely, and special friends Robert Larson, and Clark Wick.
Even in his passing, Robert continues to be a blessing in the lives of many people, as he was able to be a multiple-organ donor.
