05/10/2016: "Reunion 2017"
It is with deep sympathy for the family and friends that I am posting the following death notices:
Arthur J. Schneider, 212th 67-68. This was posted in the Columbia Daily Tribune, Columbia, MO.
Arthur Joseph Schneider, 71, son of the late Arthur C. and Dorothy Schneider, passed away Saturday, May 30, 2015. He married Vicki Kay Calloway in 1974, and they had two children.
Per Mr. Schneider’s request, no funeral is planned; rather, his family and friends will celebrate his life at a date to be determined.
Mr. Schneider held three bachelor’s degrees — in education, journalism and criminal justice — a master’s degree in criminal justice and an education specialist degree.
Mr. Schneider was a sentry dog handler for the military police. He served in Vietnam and was honorably discharged.
Earlier in his career, he worked as an assistant news editor for the Helena Independent Record in Montana. He began work as a reporter for the Columbia Daily Tribune in 1972, then in 1975 worked as a public information specialist for the University of Missouri.
He later was hired as an extension specialist for the University of Missouri and was headquartered in Boonville. He continued this work until he retired.
He served 6˝ years on the Central Missouri Food Bank Board, including one as chairman. He also served as chairman for the Harvest House Board in Boonville. He played a major role in the Boonville Outdoor Arts Committee, including in the procurement of the Hannah Cole statue and statues of other Boonville notables.
Mr. Schneider is survived by his wife of 40 years; his children, Arthur C. Schneider and his wife Mindy of Lee’s Summit, and Sarah Schneider-Toro and her husband Carlos of Medellin, Colombia; and four grandchildren, Isabella Schneider, Joseph Schneider, Marcos Antonio Toro Schneider and Miguel Arturo Toro Schneider; and his brother, Chuck Schneider of Vandalia, Ohio, and his wife Mary and their children.
Though not necessary, for those who feel compelled to send flowers, the family asks that you instead make a donation to the American Heart Association or the Humane Society of Central Missouri.
