Missoula – Larry R. Schneider, our beloved father, grandfather, great-grandfather, uncle, son-in-law and brother passed away peacefully Sunday, May 12, 2019 in the presence of loved ones at the age of 79.

Larry was born in 1940, the oldest of two children to Robert and Marie Schneider. He was raised in Boulder, Colorado and Clearfield, Utah. Larry spent his younger years enjoying time with family and extended family in the outdoors playing baseball, hunting, fishing and ice skating along with many family picnics. He attended Davis High School where he participated in wrestling, track, and art and was named the school artist his senior year. Larry attended Weber State University studying art and continued his love for art throughout his life creating many beautiful paintings of wildlife.

Larry joined the Army in 1958. He served in North Dakota and Germany. Following his service in the Army, he married the love of his life, Linda on October 6,1961. He began his career at Hill Air Force Base, where he worked as a missile mechanic for Boeing for many years. He was also employed by St. Patrick’s Hospital prior to his retirement.

Larry enjoyed spending time with his wife, children and grandchildren outdoors camping, fishing, hunting, sledding, roller-skating and playing sports. Glacier National Park, Yellowstone and Seeley Lake were some of his favorite destinations to spend time with family. Some of his other interests included golfing, dancing, jazz music, and watching the Chicago Bears.

Larry was a man of honesty and integrity. He was always willing to serve his family and others when there was a need. Family was his most important value and he is now happily reunited with Linda, his wife of fifty years whom he dearly loved.

To all of the family,
I am so sorry to hear of the loss of Larry. I have thought about him through out the years. I worked with Linda for many, many years and became acquainted with Larry through her. He was a kind, quiet man. I remember him coming to pick Linda up every day after work. He'd wait patiently for her every day. Please take great care and know that you are in the thoughts of many.
