Arlin Joseph Schreck

April 6, 1961 ~ July 24, 2023 (age 62) 62 Years Old


Arlin Joseph Schreck, 62, of Keokuk, passed away on Monday, July 24, 2023, at his home in Keokuk, Iowa.

Arlin was born on April 6, 1961, in Keokuk, Iowa, the son of Paul Schreck and Shirley (Decker) Schreck Kerr. He graduated from Keokuk High School in 1980, was employed roofing and construction and worked for Family Discount Shoes for many years. Arlin was a jack-of-all-trades, refinishing antiques and fixing everything that was brought to him. He loved his cats, feeding the local birds and growing tomatoes in his garden. Arlin never met a stranger, and never had a complaint. Although he didn’t have much, he would share it with you. He will always be remembered for his big heart, kind smile, and his wave from the porch of his house.

Arlin is survived by two children: Devin Williams and Amanda Williams; his mother Shirley Kerr of Carthage; four siblings: Steve Schreck, Lynn (Steve) Price, and Lorraine Worrell, all of Keokuk, IA, and Lisa Lorton, of Fort Madison, IA; three step-siblings: David (Vicki) Whalen of Oregon, Sherry Whalen of Riverside, CA, Clark Lee (Shelley) Kerr of Mediapolis, IA.

Arlin is preceded in death by his father Paul Schreck, his brothers Douglas and Dennis Schreck, and his step-father C. Leon Kerr.

Funeral Services will be held at 6 pm on Friday, July 28, 2023, at DeJong-Greaves-Printy Funeral Home in Keokuk. Visitation will be held at the funeral home on Friday from 4 to 6 pm directly before the service.
