Kevin William-John Schneider
1981 - 2021
Kevin William-John Schneider

Milwaukee - Kevin William-John Schneider, age 39 years young, had his precious life taken from him on Tuesday, March 16, 2021. Kevin was born in Milwaukee on July 6, 1981 to Gary Schneider and Cindee (nee: Gracyalny) Schneider. He was a 1999 graduate of Racine Lutheran High School. While at Racine Lutheran, Kevin met his high school sweetheart & the love of his life, Katie-Lynne Kucharski. They were united in marriage on October 23, 2010 at Grace Lutheran Church in Milwaukee by Rev. Stephen Jennings.

With a profound work ethic, Kevin has been employed with Roundy's Supermarkets Distribution Warehouse for over 20 years. Among his interests, Kevin was a true sportsman who enjoyed fishing, kayaking, deer hunting, car racing, was a certified range officer who was active in recreational & competitive shooting, Milwaukee Brewers fan, and was a Penn State football fanatic who never missed a yearly trip, with Katie-Lynne, to see the Nittany Lions play in a Big 10 game. Kevin was also quite talented in woodworking. With a great appreciation for animals, Kevin & Katie-Lynne were proud supporters of MADACC (Milwaukee Area Domestic Animal Control Commission). Above all, he was a genuinely kindhearted soul & overwhelmingly generous gentle giant who always made sure those around him were happy, content and well-cared for.

Surviving are his loving wife, Katie-Lynne Schneider; their canine son, Moose; father, Gary Schneider; mother, Cindee Schneider; sister, Samantha (Scott) Arft; mother-in-law, Sandi Kucharski; brother-in-law, Jeremy (Sharon) Kucharski; nieces & nephews, Jack, Mackenzie & Cole Arft; Colson, Marley & Aiden Kucharski; Katie-Lynn's grandparents, James & Nancy Kucharski and Jerry Warner; other beloved relatives, co-workers & friends - too numerous to mention all by name. Kevin was greeted in Heaven by grandparents, Allie & Betty Jane Gracyalny and Edward & Lucille Schneider; father-in-law, Richard Kucharski; and niece, Addison Arft.

PUBLIC visitation will be held in Draeger-Langendorf Funeral Home on Saturday, March 27, 2021 from 10:00 am- 1:00 pm. PRIVATE family services will follow at 2:00 pm with Rev. Stephen Jennings officiating. In honor of Kevin's love for animals, memorials to "MADACC" animal control commission have been suggested. Also, in memory of the way Kevin lived his life, offer a kind deed to someone in need.

Kevin (also known as Schnitzer to me for a brief time in high school) was a friend I always looked up to as a leader. He possessed the rare quality of always maintaining his position as the calm, level-headed and focused one of the group and never showed any signs of weakness. Kevin will be sorely missed as one of the kindest, strongest, yet funniest people I've ever known. My sincerest condolences to you Katie-Lynne, mom, dad and to the rest of the family. Let us cherish and keep all our memories of Kevin close to us forever.

I never knew Kevin, but as a retired employee of 29 years with Roundys, I wanted to express my deepest sympathy. While not a warehouse employee, I still feel connected with the company as one big family. Again, my deepest condolences. You're in my thoughts and prayers.

My sincere condolences to the family. Kevin was a true friend and wonderful human being. I have nothing but the best memories of our friendship through high-school. I could always count on Kevin to be there if needed. Although we didn't keep in touch over the years, I will always remember all the fun we had together. May God give strength and healing to all who knew and loved you Kevin.

With deepest sympathy to the entire family. Kevin was a friend of my nephew attending Lutheran High. Kevin went to car show in Columbus, Ohio with us during a summer break. Kevin was one of the most polite, courteous high schoolers I ever met. I thought I would be very proud to have a son like that. Kevin grew up to become an outstanding young man. This world lost one of its most outstanding human beings. May God bless his soul and watch over his entire family. In Gods name we pray.
