Condolences to all of the Schneider family. Uncle Don is in our thoughts and prayers, knowing he is now in heaven resting peacefully. While he is no longer with us, we will continue to cherish the memories of his presence over the years we spent together as family. All the good times at family reunions in Deephaven, Rochester, and Wabasha. Boating on the Mississippi River. Family/Cousin weddings. Getting together for Thanksgiving and Easter. These are the best memories ever of Uncle Don.
Hugs to all of you.
Dean & Julie Plank

Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you.
We will miss Uncle Don with his sense of humor. Enjoyed the years in PCB with Don and Alyce playing Sequence and visiting with them at their home. Don is reunited with my Aunt Shirley now and is blessed to have had two extraordinary women in his life.
May he Rest In Peace.....
