SCHNEIDER--Stephen. Steve's curiosity and propensity for going where others were afraid to go evolved into an illustrious career passionately educating us on the consequences of climate change. He loved debating lecturing thinking making us think traveling "punning" wine and strumming his 12 string. He loved his wife Terry, who sustained him through his professional and medical challenges. His son Adam, daughter Becca, son-in-law Mike and grandson Nikolai made him so proud. He will be missed by his Aunt Rae, remembered forever by his sister Liz and Michael Sharon Rachel and Sara, and his brother Peter and Sue Josh and Alix. You are our irreplaceable hero Stephen. Let the midnight special shine its ever-lovin' light on you.
