SHARE Obituary: Ron Schneider

Ron Schneider Will Be Missed Our dear husband, father, and friend graduated from this mortal realm Wednesday, August 3rd, 2005. He left behind a legacy of faith, fortitude, integrity and strength. Ron has been happily married to Barbara Miller for 34 years, as their union will continue through temple ordinances for time and all eternity. Ron is the proud father of five grown and responsible sons, with two delightful daughters-in-law, and four wonderful grandsons, Matthew and Emily-Luke, and Zachary; Jared; Jonathan and Jill-Finn and Jonah; Adam; and Benjamin. He is now in the loving arms of our Savior, and his earthly mom and dad, Leone and John Schneider. We will treasure his strong testimony of our Savior, Jesus Christ, throughout our lives. Thank you, my dear Ronnie, Dad and Papa, for this legacy. Learning and leading have always been a big part of his life. Ron led the Granite High Farmers as Student Body President. He graduated from the University of Utah with a B.A. in French and then later with a Juris Doctorate from the Collage of Law with Magna Cum Laude, Phi Kappa Phi, and Phi Beta Kappa distinctions. He was also a member of the Sigma Chi fraternity. As an attorney, he practiced law for many years. He later became an entrepreneur, owning several successful businesses. Through these businesses he was able to positively and directly affect the lives of may hundreds of people, who will now, in turn, affect the lives of my thousands. His charismatic leadership and love of people was evident to all, as he labored tirelessly throughout his life to serve others. Ron enjoyed playing sports with his family-tennis, basketball, and racquetball. He cultivated his love of learning throughout his life by exemplifying the words-'You'll be the same person you are today, five years from now, EXCEPT for the people you meet and the books you read!' Ron has been active as youth leader in his church, served in bishoprics, as a scoutmaster, and sang for the Mormon Tabernacle Choir for 16 years. He served an LDS mission to Paris, France for 21/2 years, and then later in life he served in the LDS Substance Abuse Recovery Mission with his wife for 21/2 years. He was a devout Christian and strived to follow the teachings of Jesus- to apply them in everyday life. He was a perfect example of unconditional acceptance with his forgiving heart and Christ-like love for others. A celebratory service, honoring his life, will be held at the Top of the World Drive Chapel (8100 S. 3675 E.) in Salt Lake City at high noon, Monday, August 8th. There will be a time for friends and family to visit at the same location on Sunday evening, August 7th from 6 to 8 p.m. then again directly before the celebration service on Monday, from 10:30 to 11:45 a.m. Get ready for the freedom balloon lift off immediately following the service!
