Chief SchaubVery sad news: Chief Master Sergeant Bill Schaub, the superintendent of the 341st Medical Group at Malmstrom Air Force Base, passed away on Thursday night. Chief was a friend of mine, and a mentor, and it hurts like hell. He loved Great Falls – the people, the outdoors, the community. He was stationed here before, in the early 90s, and actually worked up in Conrad when the Air Force maintained a small medical station there. I’m sure that he touched many people outside of the base, with his endless community service, love of trapping, and enjoyment of everything around him. He was respected and loved by the entire Medical Group family – always ready with a great story, a caring word, sage advice, and always in good cheer. The one theme that echoed throughout the clinic today was that no one ever saw him angry or raise his voice – never. He was a truly special man, and will be missed greatly. I’ve never lost someone this close to me, so I don’t know what to do – so I did the only thing that I know how to do, which is create a website for Chief Schaub where his family and friends can leave thoughts and share their memories.

  1. Chief Schaub was the first true mentor I had in my Air Force career and an inspiration throughout the last 17 years. My family and I will pray for Chief and Debbie, and I hope the friendships they developed while at Malmstrom AFB will be a comfort to Debbie.

    The man was extraordinary, truly a caring and gentle soul and took the time to teach and encourage those that wanted to carry on his tradition in the Air Force Medical Service. God bless the Schaub family.
