SCHNEIDER, William (Bill) Gerald
William (Bill) Gerald Schneider passed away peaceful with family by his side on November 28th, 2019 at the age of 66. He fought a very courageous and lengthy battle with cancer. Bill is survived by his loving wife Carol of 44 years, his daughter Lori (Jason) grandchildren Matt and Ava and his son Justin (Sandyl). He is also survived by his eight siblings: Dolores (Harvey), Rose Marie (Mel), Joyce (Gordon), Betty, Helen (Lyle), Raymond (Diane), Noreen, Darl (Danny); two sister in-laws Darlene (Jack), Debbie (Marty) as well as twenty eight nieces and nephews. He is predeceased by his parents Joe and Jean Schneider, his mother and father in-law Andy and Donna Hartman and his nephew Travis.
Bill was born March 28th, 1953 in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. At a young age, he moved just outside of Scott, Saskatchewan where his family farmed. In 1969 Bill and his family moved to Kelowna. He spent his early years logging with the majority of his working career in the concrete business, then into the marine/boating industry. Bill chose to spend every spare second of his time fishing, hunting and camping with his friends and family. He had a special way of connecting with people and could always make you smile and laugh. His sense of humour and laughter was contagious to everyone around him.
Bill’s celebration of life will be held on Wednesday, December 11th at 1:00 pm at Springfield Funeral Home, 2020 Springfield Road, Kelowna, BC.
