Rudyard, Mich., farrier Erik Schuberg passed away Jan. 30, 2023, after a 2 ½-year battle with cancer. He was 42.

A 1999 graduate of Evart High School, Schuberg successfully operated Schu’s Farrier Service, shoeing horses in northern Michigan and on Mackinac Island for Mackinac Island Carriage Tours. He also enjoyed golfing, fishing and bow hunting. He was an excellent chef and he loved to grill a good steak.

The family will not be holding a public memorial service. In the spirit of Schuberg, they hope you will remember his hard work, sharp wit, and big heart whenever you enjoy a good fishing day on the lake, a great steak off the grill, or an entertaining monologue from Tucker Carlson.
