He is preceded in death by his wife of 42 years, Erna (n‚e Strobl) Schneider. In 1956 Günter and Erna came to the United States with their daughter, Monika. They settled in Hacienda Heights, CA where Günter worked tirelessly to provide the best life possible for his family. He was an electrician by trade, but he could fix practically anything. Günter built Erna her dream home in Big Bear, CA where they retired in 1983. After Erna passed, Günter moved to Banning, CA. In 2001 Günter met his loving companion, Sunshine Bach. Over the last 13 years they have kept each other dancing and have been the life of every party they attended. Günter is survived by siblings Frieda (n‚e Schneider) Huard and Helmut Schneider; daughter Monika (n‚e Schneider) Leiterman, and grandsons Tony Leiterman, Ryan Leiterman, and Brandon Leiterman, and three great-grandchildren. Günter fervently believed that anything could be accomplished with a good attitude and hard work. His love of life is unforgettable and will continue to inspire all who knew him.
