Rocky Schneider

Lynn Martin Schneider, known by family and friends as Rocky, traveled on to eternal life January 21, 2021. He will be greatly missed, and continue on in the memories of all those who loved him dearly, life partner, Jan Pockrandt; brother, John Schneider; sister-in-law, Bonnie Schneider; son, Dan (Carrie) LeTourneau; daughter, Shawnn (Steve) Williams; Jan's children,  Tammy Putman, Laura (Vern) Gorney; nieces, Kim Schneider, Billie Jo (James) Traxler, Leann (Jon) Peterson, grandsons, Curtis LeTourneau, Chad (Jessica) LeTourneau, Cody LeTourneau, Jimmy Kosciolek; great niece, Kara Wildie-Schneider; great grandchildren, many cousins and friends. Rocky joins his family that went on before him parents, Glenn and Violet Schneider; sister, Glenda Chandler; brother, Gary Schneider and nephew, Timothy Chandler.
Rocky was born in Tawas, Michigan on May 30, 1942, graduated from T.L. Handy in 1960 and was a Veteran who proudly served in the U.S. Army from 1964 to 1966 stationed in Germany. He followed in his father's footsteps and had a successful career working on the railroad. He loved trains, riding his Harley, spending time with family, playing the stock market, and traveling the world with his life partner, Jan. They visited Hawaii, Machu Picchu, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Scotland, Europe, South America, Australia and many other destinations bringing home fabulous stories and souvenirs. He enjoyed many adventures with his brother John, which included trips to Pleasant View Farm where they had great times with their many cousins. Rocky was a member of Old Town Gym where he worked out with a lot of good friends. He also belonged to the American Legion & Moose Club.
Rocky's life was full and well lived. He will be remembered as a kind, loving, friendly, and outgoing man that passionately embraced many opportunities, and made a positive impression on everyone he knew and met.
The family would like to thank all of Rocky's caregivers on the Covenant Hospital Covid floor, especially Nurse Ashley who was by his side and held his hand as he peacefully went on to his next life. And, express appreciation to the Veteran's and Chaplin Ruth for the Code Honor Ceremony performed to commemorate Rocky. Also convey a heartfelt thanks to Nurse Don of Care Team for his compassion and consultation, along with much gratitude to the very loving Karen and staff at Bay Valley House.
There will be a small, private burial at Oak Ridge Cemetery with Pastor Gail Dobert presiding from Unity Church in Bay City, where Rocky and Jan were members and had spiritual friendships with many parishioners-including John Peterson who was a close family friend.
The family will host a memorial Celebration of Rocky's wonderful life at a future date, to honor a special man who departed at a special time -the 21st day, of the 21st year, of the 21st Century.
Those planning an expression of sympathy may wish to consider donations to Unity Church of Bay City, 3736 State St. Rd., Bay City, MI 48706 or Alzheimer's Association 2245 N. Michigan Ave. Floor 17, Chicago, IL 60601. For online condolences please visit our website at www. gephartfuneralhome.com.
