Richard Edward Schneider

SCHNEIDER, Richard Edward 

August 18, 1950 – April 4, 2021 

Passed away in the comfort of his home, surrounded by his family, on Sunday, April 4, 2021, at the age of 70. Reunited with his soul mate Christine (nee Roughton, 2014). Adored and cherished father of Tawnya (Anthony) Delmonte and Lisa (Dan) Mitchell. Proud Papa of Bryanna Townsend, Barry White and Kai and Owen Mitchell. Son of the late Edward and Edna Schneider (nee Dumochelle). Dearest brother of Lawrence, late Keith (Marilyn), Kenneth (Terry), late Michael, and Louise. Brother-in-law of Linda (Roger) Proulx, late Joanne Van Zandt, Nancy Squires, Debbie Logan (Jim Komarnicki), Kim Bouliane (Brad Warner), and late Kenneth Roughton Jr. He will be missed by many nieces, nephews, and friends, especially Kenny and Vince.  

Richard retired from Chrysler Canada after 34 years. He was a dedicated member of Local 444 Union since the early 1970’s and served as the Vice President, prior to his retirement. He treasured the relationships he made with his Union “brothers and sisters” and will be deeply missed by all of them.  

Richard enjoyed bowling, playing baseball, golfing, betting at horse races, and going on camping trips with Christine and their daughters. He spent his retirement watching his grandchildren’s extracurricular activities. He was always in the crowd cheering and was their biggest fan. In his last few years, you could always find him and his brother Kenny outside, hunting or fishing all year round. 

He never missed a Friday morning breakfast date with Tawnya and Anthony, and loved to garden with Lisa and Dan. The fur babies will miss all the treats he used to feed them. 

Arrangements entrusted to WINDSOR CHAPEL (Banwell Chapel) 11677 Tecumseh Rd. E., 519-253-7234. In keeping with Richards wishes, a private family viewing will take place with cremation to follow. He will be laid to rest next to Christine at Victoria Memorial Gardens. Online condolences and cherished memories are encouraged by the family at www.windsorchapel.com
