Michael Lee Schneider passed away peacefully on October 1, 2021, at his rural home in Collyer, KS, at the age of 67. He was born on February 11, 1954, to Bernhardt and Viola Edna (Wilhelm) Schneider in WaKeeney, KS. Michael married Kathleen Ann "Kathy" Wright on August 11, 1973, in Atwood, KS. They were blessed with six children: Adam, Tate, Kahl, Chauncy, Becky, and Mary.
Mike grew up on the family farm in Trego County and attended Trego County schools until his senior year. In his 40's he got his GED. He worked for Ideal Ind. as a welder. After getting married he worked for WaKeeney Redi Mix. Then the family moved to Bird City, KS where he worked for a large farmer. In 1979 they moved back to the family farm where he built the family home. He was a dedicated farmer raising hogs, cattle, and crops. He was a skilled carpenter, mechanic, welder, and a talented storyteller. He loved riding the motorcycle and once each year he and Kathy would take off for parts unknown. He called this their marriage counseling. He enjoyed fishing, snow skiing, boating, and playing cards with the neighbors. Grandkids brought out a whole new side of him; they were his world.
Mike was a rural member of the Trego County Volunteer Fire Department and the WaKeeney Church of God.
