John E. “Jack” Schneider

January 14, 1920 – January 5, 2012

Loving father and grandfather, Jack passed away a week shy of
his 92nd birthday in Redmond, WA.

Dubbed a “character” by all who knew him because of his
sharp wit, quick retorts, & infectious laugh, he will be dearly
missed by son & daughter-in-law Steve & Marlene Schneider,
grandchildren Kim & Eric Schneider, & daughter Jan Parsons.
He was born in Seattle & raised in Issaquah, was a member
of Kappa Sigma fraternity at UW, & a championship skier with
the U of W Ski Club. He stayed active with the Ancient Skiers
for many years. In the Air Force in WW II, he taught flying at
Luke Field, AFB, AZ and Instructor Pilots at Randolph AFB,
TX.

While in AZ he married Florence McCartney, who preceded
him in death in 1993 after 50 wonderful years of marriage.
Their second son, Scott, died in Viet Nam. Jack & Flo lived in
Renton & he worked at Boeing in Industrial Engineering &
with the AOG group, where he traveled the world. He stayed
active in the Air Force Reserves & received the rank of Colonel
before retiring from both in 1990. He was a longtime member
of the Renton Lyons & was active with the club in Crawley,
England when living there.

He married Olive Overbye in 1994 & the two spent many
happy years golfing and enjoying friends until her death in 2010.
He is also survived by step-sons Gordon and Dennis Overbye,
daughter-in-law Nancy Wartik & granddaughter Mira.
