Nico Schroeder 1934-2015 — R.I.P.

In late afternoon of 22 January Nico Schroeder passed away after a cerebral hemorrhage and a massive heart attack. He had been in intensive care in Luxembourg City’s main hospital since he broke his neck when he suffered a stroke and a bad fall on some steps near his home late on 7 January.

    Very sorry to hear of Nico’s passing. My uncle is buried in Luxembourg and I always looked forward to seeing the Memorial Day photos Nico posted. He will be missed by many and my condolences go out to his family and friends.

    I met Nico about a year ago when my friend & I (American students) were visiting Luxembourg. I remember how cheerful & welcoming he was towards us. That memory sent me looking for his website today…I’m sad to hear that he is gone. May he rest in peace with the Lord!

    It is with great sadness that I heard of Nico’s accident and resulting untimely death. My wife Jane and I were fortunate to spend two memorable days as guests of Nico and his friends Constant and Daniel of the U. S. Veterans Friends, Luxembourg on our way to Normandy in May 2014. On behalf of the U.S. Army 249th Engineer Battalion Association, some of whose living members fought under Gen. George S. Patton in the Battle of the Bulge, I offer my sincerest sympathy to Nico’s family and friends.

    I accompanied many veterans back to Luxembourg over the years and Nico was always there with his wonderful smile to welcome us and record our visit with his camera. The last and what was very sadly to be the final time was with the Veterans of the Battle of the Bulge Association on December 16 2014 at Luxembourg American Cemetery for the 70th Anniversary commemoration. Nico, we shall greatly miss you, but at least we have your superb photos to remember you by.

    Col Duerr’s comments say it all. I got to know Nico, when I met him at the US Cemetery many years ago. I would often see him there (I am an LCTO guide),(time and group permitting) we would always have a chat. He certainly had a passion for his photography and his wonderful web site was a big help to me as a guide. He will be greatly missed. A true gentleman!
    My sincere condolences to his family.

    I only met Nico once, when he gave me a private tour of the cemetery. His knowledge and demeanor left a lasting impression on me. I am thankful for the work he did and the passion he showed for it. I will cherish his memory always.
