GASTONIA - Raymond L. Schneider passed away, peacefully, at his home in Gastonia on March 26, 2013.
Raymond was a veteran of the Vietnam War
and retired from the United States Navy
as a Senior Chief after serving, honorably, for 26 years. Though his military career was a great source of pride and accomplishment, Raymond's true joy was found with his family.
He was preceded in death by his loving wife, Margaret Fisher Schneider, just shy of their 26th wedding anniversary.
Raymond is survived by his son, Mark David Schneider and his daughter, Tracy Karena Schneider.
Raymond overcame, seemingly, insurmountable odds to serve his country and provide for his family. He did so with honor, respect and the love and admiration of his wife and children. Raymond Schneider will be greatly missed and never forgotten.
Services will be private.

The family is being cared for by Withers and Whisenant Funeral Home and Cremation Service, 2916 Union Road, Gastonia, 704-864-5144.
