About the Book

William Schumacher was a big man, robust and handsome, square jawed, with blue eyes and wavy, blond hair. His smile was boundless, his laughter infectious. He was kind, compassionate, and ethical. Most of all, he was a role model to his family, friends, colleagues, students, and anyone else who crossed his path.
In a fascinating biography, his daughter Janet Flaugher posthumously chronicles his life through his own stories left to her in a folder after his death. The child of immigrants, William grew up in Denver, Colorado, during the Great Depression. He never owned a bike or a ball, and rarely had a penny to his name. As Janet continues his story through the years, she reveals a glimpse into a life well lived as Bill transformed into a United States Air Force bombardier during the Second World War and became a celebrated Denver public schools administrator, a devoted husband to his wife of sixty-three years, a dedicated father to two children who adored him, and a loving grandfather to five.
My Father’s Voice is the biography of a war veteran and public school administrator who led by example that kindness is never out of style, that integrity is paramount, and that every life has value.
