Harold J. Schneider

Harold J “Harry” Schneider, age 73, of Chilton, died on October 4, 2017 at the Villa Loretto in Mount Calvary.  He was born on August 15, 1944 in Chilton, son of Jacob and Veronica (Schmidt) Schneider.  

Harry proudly served his country in the US Army and was active duty during the Vietnam War.  During that time he was awarded the Purple Heart, National Defense Service Metal and Vietnam Service Medal.  After he was discharged from the military, he came back to Chilton and worked at Chilton Plating Company as a forklift driver until retirement.  

Harry had a passion and love for hunting and being outdoors.  He spent many weekends and weeks up North hunting deer and other big game.  Even after his stroke 11 years ago he had many good years of getting out and being up North doing the things he enjoyed most, hunting.  

Harry was an easy going and kind-hearted man.  He gave an ear to listen and wanted to keep up with how everyone was doing.  He was also an avid Sheepshead player, always up for good game, and often found a game going on that he could join at the Villa Loretta.   

Harry will be missed by his brothers: Clarence (Eileen) Schneider of Chilton, William Schneider of Fond du Lac, Frederick (Chris) Schneider of Athelstane, Gordon (Sharon) Schneider of Collins; brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law: Melvin Lisowe of Chilton, Ronald Preissner of Chilton, Kayleen Schneider of Chilton; and many nieces, nephews, other relatives, and friends.  

He was preceded in death by his parents; 5 brothers: Leo (Alice) Schneider, Ervin Schneider, Gerald Schneider, Eugene Schneider, Alvin Schneider; and 4 sisters: Lorraine Lisowe, Elsie (George) Rahmer, Arlene Preissner, and Katherine Schneider;  and sister-in-law, Phyllis Schneider. 

Funeral services will be at 2:30 PM on Friday, October 6, 2017, at the Villa Loretto in Mount Calvary with the Rev. Gary Wegner officiating.  Burial will be in the St. Mary Catholic Church Cemetery in Stockbridge.  Friends may call at the Villa Loretto from 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM on Friday, October 6, 2017.  

The family of Harry would like to thank the nurses, doctors, and staff at the Villa Loretto for all their care and kindness towards Harry.
