Obituary of Bob Schneider

Robert “Bob” Stevens Schneider, 85, of Milliken passed away on Monday, July 3, 2023  at Pathways Hospice after multiple surgeries and a battle with mouth cancer.  He was a valiant fighter up to the very end. 

He was born April 9, 1938 in Windsor to Phillip and Hilda (Weimer) Schneider, Jr. where he spent his early years.  In 1944, the family moved to Greeley and Bob graduated from Greeley High School in 1956.

Bob enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corp, completing basic training, before an honorable discharge and returning to the family farm to take over for his father. 

On April 5, 1964, Bob married Marilyn Joann Bernhardt at the First Congregational Church in Greeley, celebrating 59 years together.

Bob was a farmer, bull rider and steer wrestler in many rodeos, worked part-time for Kreps & Wiedeman Auctioneer, branded and ran their own cow/calf operation and was also an avid collector.  He loved Southern Gospel quartet music, traveling to Branson, collecting die cast model cars and tractors. 

A gold card member of the PRCA, Bob was also an active member of the Milliken Presbyterian Church where he sang in the choir as well as a member of St. John United Church of Christ.
