Allen F. Schneider
"Al"

Company L-1

27 Sep 1935 - 14 Jan 2009

Place of Death: Fayetteville, AR

Interment: Holiday Island Presbyterian Church Columbarium, Fayetteville, AR

It is with great regret and sorrow that we forward the message concerning the death of our former classmate, Al Schneider, on Wednesday, January 14, 2009, in Fayetteville, Arkansas.  They were to replace his badly worn aortic valve and do a single bypass around the aortic stenosis.  Complications and a second run on the heart-lung machine were just too much for his heart to take.

Al would have been so touched by the memorial service in a packed church of relatives and friends, complete with the military recognition service led by one of his golfing buddies who happens to be Chaplain of the local American Legion post.  His cremains have been divided, half to the church columbarium (with Army insignia) and half into the Kings River later in the spring....perhaps during the white bass run. 

He is survived by his wife, Carol Ann; a son, Allen Jr. of Kansas City, MO; daughters, Margaret Anne Schneider of Belton, MO and Katie Stinnett of Branson, MO; three grandchildren, Laura Schneider of Kansas City, MO, and Trevor and Caitlin Knoblauch of Branson, MO; three brothers, David L. Schneider of Hemet, CA, Michael Edwards of Independence, MO, Marc Edwards of Largo, FL; a sister, Margaret Steward of LaMonte, MO; and his mother-in-law, Elizabeth Huston of Holiday Island, AR.

A Celebration of Life service was held 11:00 A.M. Saturday, January 17, 2009 at Holiday Island Presbyterian Church.  Condolences may be sent to Carol Ann at 121 Stateline Drive, Eureka Springs, AR  72631.  The family requests that memorial contributions be made to the Holiday Island Presbyterian Church Building Fund, 111 Valley Drive, Holiday Island, AR  72631.

Well done, Al.  Be thou at peace.
