Brian David Schuler November 17, 1959 - May 29, 2020

On the Morning of May 29th, 2020 Dr. Brian Schuler unexpectedly went to be with his Heavenly Father.

Brian was born November 17, 1959 to parents Dennis Schuler and Janice Eckhart. He was the second oldest of 4 children. As a child Brian was very active and enjoyed playing many sports including basketball and baseball. This passion would later be passed down to his daughters and son. His free time was spent exploring the outdoors, he was an avid hunter. Brian was known as a prankster and class clown who loved to make people laugh.

In 1990 he would graduate from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa where he excelled at his studies and graduated with honors. After graduating, he opened his own practice in Boise, ID in which he would practice for almost 30 years. He was adored by his patients who lovingly referred to him as “Doc”. He constantly strived to better the lives of his patients and seeing them heal and watching their health improve was one of his greatest accomplishments.

As well as an accomplished doctor, Brian was first and foremost a husband and father. In 1995 he married his wife Elonda and together they would have 9 children. He is survived by his wife Elonda of 25 years and 8 children Madelyn, Makayla, Makenna, Maegan, Gracie, Gwendelyn, EllieAuna, and Gunnar. As well as his mother Janice Eckhart, sister Lisa Schuler, brother Bradley Schuler and brother Randi Eckhart. He is predeceased by his son Cooper who is welcoming him with open arms.

Brian’s pride and joy were his children. His face would light up talking about them and their accomplishments. He loved to share his passion for the outdoors with his kids and was always found on the weekends at either the golf course or fishing. Brian was always known to crack a dorky dad joke and loved to make people laugh. He was known for his generous heart and willingness to always lend a hand to those that needed it.

To honor Brian’s legacy, the family will be holding a private memorial service Thursday June 4, 2020 at 12pm. The memorial service will be live streamed and all are invited to watch. A public viewing will be held Wednesday June 3, 2020 from 6-8pm at Bowman Funeral Parlor 10254 W Carlton Bay Drive Garden City, Idaho 83714.

    Dr Schuler, you are sooo very missed. Our family feels lost without you. We can’t even imagine what your own precious family is going through. May you and Cooper have a wonderful reunion and prepare a way for when your entire family can be together again eternally. Thank you for the years of help and generous giving, to us and our friends who you have carefully tended to! I’m still relishing the back brace you gave me so I could do things I wouldn’t otherwise be able to do! We love and appreciate you and are keeping your loved ones in our prayers…..

    I worked for Brian as an assistant back when he was a new Chiropractor. He was a kind & caring man. Always so helpful & good to his patients & staff! He came to my wedding back in 1994. I have fond memories of Brian. I wish his family peace & prayers at this difficult time. ❤️

    “Jesus said to her, “I am the one who brings people back to life, and I am life itself. Those who believe in me will live even if they die.” (john 11:25) –may the words and promise of Jesus bring comfort to you and your family at the passing of Brian. I was sorry to receive the news as we had not seen each other for a few years. “Everyone who lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe that?” Jesus asks. (John 11:26)

    Late to the communication trail but here goes – Brian was my friend during the most forming years of my life and my heart is warm with the impact he made on his family, friends and professional practice. He was a hoot to be part of in our early life and sports together and I wish him best in the next adventures and pass-along impact he has made to me and my family.
