Leo’s funeral service will be live streamed at www.stevensonfuneralhome.com, with the link being available just prior to service time.

Public Visitation for Leo will take place from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Wednesday, October 14th at Stevenson Funeral Home, Dickinson.

Leo passed away Thursday, October 8, 2020 at St. Benedict's Health in Dickinson.

Leo was born in Stark County on February 10, 1936, the son of Emmanuel and Pauline (Heipel) Schatz. As a young boy, he grew up on the family farm near Antelope where he attended country school. After his father died at a young age, Leo took over the family farm. He later helped his mother run the Pool Hall and Rec Center in Elgin, ND. It was during this time that he met Angela Schmitt. Leo married Angela on April 4, 1964 at St. Vincent’s Catholic Church in Mott. Their marriage was blessed with five children, Sheila, Wayne, Shea, Scott and Lynelle. Leo worked many seasonal heavy equipment jobs over the years which took his family to Regent, Richardton and Beulah before they settled in Dickinson. In recent years, he worked at Dickinson State University and the Dickinson Press. Leo loved hunting (especially pheasants), playing pinochle, bingo and drinking Old Milwaukee. He also enjoyed gardening, flowers, watching rodeos and western movies. Leo will surely be missed by his faithful dog, Buddy. He will be remembered for his hard-working traits and even though he was a quiet man, his words stood out when he shared his stories.

Leo is survived by his wife of 56 years, Angela; his children: Sheila (Dennis) Francis of Norwich, ND, Wayne (Robin) Schatz, Shea (Michelle) Schatz, Scott (Glenda) Schatz, Lynelle (Bruce) Hecker all of Dickinson; grandchildren, Dustin, Desiree, Cody, Jason, Danielle, Andrea, Whitney, Ashton, Caden, Hunter, Remington and Dylan; and 13 great-grandchildren; sisters, Viola Hummel of Mott, Shirley Hoffmeyer of Valley City, Jane Mayer of Richardton.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Emmanuel and Pauline Schatz; brothers, Marvin and Harvey Schatz; sister, Betty Steckler.
