Robert Schneider

1927 – 2021

On January 18, 1927, Robert “Bob” Schneider was born to Claude and Florence (Nyberg) Schneider in Wadena, MN.

Bob attended U of M Crookston after high school, and from there he was drafted into the Army. He proudly served in Germany during WWII and was honorably discharged in 1946.

Throughout his life, Bob made many friends, and had many hobbies. He enjoyed spending time in his shop, fixing or creating things. Many hours were spent playing cards, reading books and newspapers. He especially loved watching movies. His movie collection was impressive!

Bob had many ways of earning a living throughout his life. The two he was most proud of were his time at the Mare Island Naval Shipyard in Vallejo, CA, and his many years as an over the road truck driver. He was proud that he had been to every state excluding Alaska and Hawaii.

Bob’s greatest joys, his grandchildren, came late in his life. He loved them dearly, and in his special way let each of them know that.

On September 23, 2021, Bob Passed away, leaving his daughters, Valerie Schneider of Wadena, MN, and Carla (Diggy) Lorentz of Wadena, MN. He also leaves behind his grandchildren, Kaylee, Drew, Arynn, and Danielle.

As requested by Bob, no services will be held.

Arrangements are with the Schuller Family Funeral Homes & Cremation Services, Johnson-Schuller Chapel, Wadena, MN. Online condolences may be left at
