It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Glenn William Schneider on July 24, 2020 at the Yorkton Regional Health Centre after a courageous battle with cancer. Glenn was born November 27, 1949 to William and Margaret (Mohr) Schneider. Glenn was raised on the family farm near Melville with his older brother Dennis and two younger sisters Lynn and Connie. As a young boy he worked hard on the farm developing a work ethic that was evident throughout his life. Without fully completing school, Glenn moved to Yorkton and entered the workforce in the optical business at a very young age. On July 4, 1970, Glenn and Gloria (Heppler) were united in marriage in Melville. After a short period living in Vancouver, they returned to Saskatchewan and made their home in Yorkton. Here they were blessed to raise their son Corey and daughter Cindy. Glenn worked as an ophthalmic dispenser for 45 years before "retiring" in 2010. He never did fully retire as he continued working on construction projects and enjoyed farming with his good friend Larry. Glenn was an extremely talented "self-taught" handy man who always enjoyed a challenge. Carpentry and mechanic skills came naturally to Glenn. He was always patient and proud to pass this knowledge on to his children and grandchildren. Glenn loved old vehicles. He purchased his 1st pride and joy, a 1965 Ford Mustang in 1968. This is when his life-long appreciation for classic cars began. Whether he was re-building a motor or re-upholstering seats, he always seen the value in his time spent as the finished product was always something to be proud of. Glenn enjoyed hunting and fishing trips (especially "up north") with friends and family. He also supported the local Yorkton Terrier Hockey Team, taking the grandchildren to games whenever possible. Glenn loved his family and his greatest joy was spending time with his grandchildren. One of Glenn's favorite places was the cabin at the lake where many happy memories were made with both family and friends. Glenn was a fantastic husband, father, grandfather (papa), brother, uncle and dear friend to many, he will be sadly missed.

Glenn was predeceased by his parents William and Margaret Schneider. He leaves to cherish his memory, his loving wife Gloria, his children Corey Schneider and Cindy Fenske (Darren), his grandchildren, Jake Fenske, Abbey Fenske, Logan Schneider, Keira Schneider, his brother Dennis (Susan) Schneider, his sisters Lynn Hoffman (Dave), Connie Bierwagen (Roger), his many nieces, nephews, cousins as well as many, many friends. The funeral service was held on Friday, July 31, 2020 from the Yorkton Memorial Gardens Family Centre with Crystal Bailey officiating. Corey Schneider gave the eulogy. Music played was 'Angels Among Us', 'Go Rest High', and 'Memories'. The interment took place in the Garden of St. Mark with Larry Koroll, Ken Rathgeber, Lance Light and Dale Lazurko serving as the casketbearers. Memorials to the SK Wildlife Federation may be made as gifts of remembrance. Condolences can be left at
