FREDERICK SCHNEIDER (1933-2017)

Frederick George Schneider passed away peacefully with his family by his side on Friday, Sept. 1, 2017, at Columbia Forest LTC in Waterloo, where Fred resided for the past two years.

Lovingly remembered by his son Barry Thompson of Waterloo.

Proud grandpa to Brock, Trent and Paige Thompson, all of Waterloo.

Cherished brother to sister Hope Gingrich of Waterloo. Fondly remembered as Uncle Freddie by his nephews Brooke (Angie) and Laird (Mirka) Schneider, Grant (Jennifer) and Wayne (Darlene) Gingrich and Dale (Kris) Leuzinger and by nieces Christine (Dan) Karges and Heather (Jeremy) Higgins. Always remembered fondly by his great-nieces and great-nephew: William, Amy, Zoe and Megan Gingrich.

Devoted husband to the late Audrey (Jarvis) Schneider (2011) and known as Fred to her children Ted (Julie Sherwood) and Marcia (Dennis) Patterson and her sons Jake and Kyle.

Predeceased by parents Clayton (1989) and Ruby (1978) Schneider, sister Lola (2003) (Robert, 2010) Leuzinger, brother Donald (2006) (Aileen) Schneider and brother-in-law Lloyd Gingrich (1996).

Fred lived a full life in his 84 years. Born in Waterloo County, he lived in Waterloo until his retirement in 1996 from Wm. Knell & Co. where he had worked for 43 years. He then moved permanently to his cottage in Point Clark on Lake Huron.

He loved the outdoors and fishing, and was always feeding the wildlife around his property. He took pleasure in his beautiful flower gardens and the glorious sunsets, and made many new and lasting friendships from Goderich to Kincardine as he was always willing to help family, friends and neighbours in any way he could. Fred had a special love for cars and tools, enjoyed shopping and entertaining and was an excellent cook, specializing in his famous Caesar Salad. He always had a good story and joke for anyone visiting. He was a man of many talents and will be missed by all who knew him.

The family thanks the staff at Columbia Forest for the care and compassion given to Fred during his stay. Special thanks to Joe Brito with Aurora Home Care for his many outdoor excursions and companionship and also to Christian Fleisig, Fred’s cribbage volunteer. All your kindness was very much appreciated by the family.

Visitation was held at the Erb & Good Family Funeral Home, 171 King St. S., Waterloo, from 10-11 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 9, 2017. A memorial service was held at 11 a.m. in the funeral home chapel followed by a reception.

To honour Fred’s wishes, cremation has taken place.
