Classmates, friends, and family,
As your class scribe, it is with a heavy heart that I report the passing of our classmate and brother, Don Schneider (18th Company). In recent years, Don had been bravely battling a number of ills. Sadly, on Monday, Nov 14th, at 9:12 a.m., Don finally succumbed to his medical complications. He was surrounded by his family and the prayers of all who knew and loved him. His daughter, Ruby, wrote that he died “peacefully and pain free.”
The funeral and viewing for Don will be held on Monday, November 21st, at Uriah Grace church in Gardners, PA. The address is 925 Goodyear Rd, Gardners, PA 17324. The viewing will be from 11 a.m. to 1p.m. with the service to follow.
The celebration of life in remembrance will be in the church’s fellowship hall following the service.
Don will be laid to rest with traditional military honors at 12:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov 22nd, in Fort Indiantown Gap National Cemetery, 60 Indiantown Gap Rd, Annville, PA 17003. Guests are advised to be there early- preferably by noon but no later than 12:15 p.m.
Don’s daughter wrote, “Dad was a beacon of light, and valued the relationships he formed with everyone on his journey through life. We understand if you are unable to attend, but would like to enforce that all are welcome to celebrate and to remember the beautiful life that He had…”
I know we all will continue to keep Lynne, their children, Ruby and Chris, and their grandchildren in our prayers; and reflect of on our own moments with Don.
Eternal Father Strong To Save…
