Every day for the past four years, Brian Schuetz started his day before 4:30 a.m. and ended it after 11 p.m.

By 5:15 a.m., he'd be picking up supplies for the Loveland coffee shop he owned. Then he'd head to Loco Artisan Coffee House, make sure everything was set up for its 6 a.m. opening and head to his other job at a bakery in Johnstown.

He'd work at the bakery until 2:30 p.m. and be right back to Loco until well after the 9 p.m. closing, cleaning up and getting ready for the next day.

Schuetz did that every day until his shop at 544 Cleveland Ave. in Loveland closed its doors earlier this month.

The work was always about more than just making a living and getting through each day. It wasn't just that Schuetz was always smiling or having conversations with his customers.
