Green Bay - John P. Schneider, 72, passed away on Wednesday, November 18, 2020. He was born on May 28, 1948 in Sheboygan to the late Phillip and Alma (Vogt) Schneider. He was a 1966 graduate of Howards Grove High School. He then attended UW-Oshkosh and graduated in 1970 with a degree in business. On June 19, 1971 he married Margaret Molik at St. Alexander Catholic Church in Milwaukee. John started his career at Combined Insurance before venturing out on his own and starting his own insurance agency. His entrepreneurial spirit led him to become a franchise owner of H&R Block for 30 years. John loved all sports, especially the Packers, Badgers, which he and Marge were season ticket holders for many years, and anything that involved his grandchildren. He enjoyed golfing, bowling, going to the casino and traveling. His travels led him to visit 37 states. Above all, family meant everything to him.

He is survived by his wife, Marge, Green Bay; children, David (Janis) Schneider, Oregon, WI; Cathy (Aaron) Willems, Green Bay; and Diane (Michael) Shea, Green Bay; six grandchildren, Kayla, Austin, Alex and Emily Willems, and Alicia and Logan Shea; brother, Maynard (Sally) Schneider; sister, Jeanette (Eugene) Lutze; brother-in-law, Michael (Sandra) Molik; and many other nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.
