I have thought of Mr. Schneider often in the past years. He was my Trigonometry teacher in 1986 and his class was the only math class in high school that I got an “A”. I fondly remember the many times he caught me with gum and had to put it on my nose or I swallowed it. Rest In Peace.

I have fond memories of Mr. Schneider. He was my math teacher back in high school. His teaching impacted my life, as with a solid math understanding, I was equipped to have a successful career. I'm very sorry for your loss.

Coach, I’ve countless fond memories of Track at NBHS and most all those memories include you! Your old green step side pickup following us around the 4-mile block making sure no one fell behind, (was shocked that thing stayed together aside from it actually running all 4 years!) How you kept us all organized at the big meets, keeping our times and telling us we could be the best if we ran hard. You’re smile and head shake when I’d ask if there were medals involved. Your dedication and hard work as our coach was always apricated. God Bless; Jeff Weingartz 77

Mr. Schneider,
We will always have "found" memories of you telling us to "pick up the pace" doing 800's around the baseball back stops. In the spring doing 200's-400's you were amazed at some of the splits we'd run...that because we'd cut the corners of our "dandelion" track ;)

In Trig class you had patience of a Saint teaching me the unit circle and all those other awful formulas !

You would always told us before races to "be tuff" and run "smart" . This advance carried over into life as well.

Doug Ogden & rest of the members of the XC/Track Team's '77-'81
