He was born Dec. 19, 1920, in Wilmington, the first child of the late Christian J. and Gertrude A. Davis Schranck. He grew up in Wilmington and in nearby Newport. In places like Church- man's Marsh, he first learned to hunt and fish, and both activities became lifelong passions. Mr. Schranck graduated from Wilmington High School in 1939, and took business courses at Goldey College before landing a job as a mail clerk at DuPont. He enlisted in the U.S. Navy shortly after Pearl Harbor. Mr. Schranck proudly served in the Atlantic theater on the Splinter Fleet sub-chaser SC 678, and later in the Pacific on LSM 312, with landings at Lingayen Gulf and Okinawa among his ma- jor battles. A yeoman and petty officer, he had a short stint in Japan immediately after the war, remaining in the service to "help muster out the other servicemen. Returning to civilian life, he resumed working at DuPont, and began dating Margaret Hen- nis, a secretary there that he'd met before the war. They fell in love and married in October 1947. Together they raised five children, as he continued his DuPont career. For many years Mr. Schranck was the recreation director for DuPont's Engineering Depart- ment Employees' Activities Association (EDEAA). He man- aged a wide assortment of sports " leagues, baseball and football outings, company vacations and cruises, and the famous EDEAA familY picnics at Louviers. A devoted conservationist, he joined Ducks Unlimited in New Castle County in the early 1970s. Mr. Schranck brought his net- working and fundralsing abilities to that organization, eventu- ally becoming county chairman, Delaware state chairman and a national trustee. Mr. Schranck retired from DuPont in 1982, and he and Mar- garet moved tO Rehoboth Beach. They enjoyed a long and happy retirement, with active mem- bership in the Rehoboth Beach Country Club a central part of their senior years.
