Richard Walter Schneider

June 22, 1935 - January 2, 2021

Richard Walter Schneider (Dick) went home on January 2, 2021. He is survived by his wife of 62 years, Shirley (Bird) Schneider and their children Barbara (Scott) Carter, Lynda Butler, and Steven (Chris) Schneider. Richard was extremely proud of his seven grandchildren, Sarah (Brent) Harris, Samuel Butler, Elisabeth Carter, Anna Schneider, Thomas Butler, Daniel Carter, and Rachel Butler. He was blessed with two great-grandchildren, Harvey and Jace Harris, before his passing. He is preceeded in death by his beloved parents, Martha and Walter Schneider. A Western Hills High School graduate, Richard was proud of his service in the US Navy. After receiving his degree from the University of Cincinnati, where he was a member of Phi Delta Theta, he worked in Personnel and Human Resources. Richard worked at a number of organizations, including Chemed and Formica. Richard eventually started his own consulting business, which continued until just a few years before his passing. Richard was an extrovert and always the life of the party. Friends will recall Richard as a leader and strong supporter of his Western Hill's High School class of 1953, having led reunion efforts for decades. He also served on the committee to refurbish Westwood Elementary School, where he met many of his lifelong friends. Richard's favorite past time was spending time in his large garden on South Road in Western Hills, and later, spending time with his grandchildren. Richard was born and raised in Western Hills and proud of it! A celebration of Richard's life will take place at a later date due to Covid-19 restrictions. Spring Grove is assisting with arrangements. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that contributions be made to Richard's chosen charities: St. Joseph Orphanage in Cincinnati (, and/or Boys Town (
