Raymond P. Schneider was a wonderful soul. He worked for the wonderful Hollaender Mfg Co, who treated Ray like family long after he retired from the company. He became a 4th Degree in Knights of Columbus, just like his Grandpa, and volunteered at the Cincinnati Zoo and local hospitals for a number of years. We miss him already... We miss his giggle, and his laugh when ya really got him going. How will we know what the weather is going to be next week. What if we forget the 241-1010 number. Who will remind is to take an umbrella when we need it? Who will remind us when our favorite teams are playing? He was so sweet, so kind, so generous, and we've actually had to stop him once from giving away the shirt off his back. There's no one else like him. It's not possible for anyone to love the Cincinnati Zoo more than he did. He loved his family, and was so proud of all of us. He bragged constantly, to anyone who would listen about each of our accomplishments and life events. He loved to give compliments and make you feel like a million bucks. He's leaving such an impossibly big hole in our lives. He was an artist, and a lover of all beings. He loved to call just to share what was going on on Andy Griffith or Gunsmoke, or to tell us what channel our favorite movie was on, no matter how many times we told him we didn't have cable. He found the good in everyone and tried to help as many people as he could with whatever he had. He was a shameless flirt, and tried his best to put a smile on every stranger's face... especially the pretty ones... We miss him so much. Even when he was angry he couldn't help but tell you to have a good night and to take care, right in the middle of his frustrated rant. He always made ya laugh. We really miss Ol' Twinkle Toes", "Ray Ray", "Ray Dog", "Zoo Dog" Schneider. He was a kind soul, and an inspiration, and we were so blessed and grateful to have him in our lives I hope we can all learn to love, fight, flirt, inform, inspire, and give, as much as he did. Ray is survived by his sister Tecla (Schneider) Steinfort and her husband Ken, and sister Pamela (Schneider) Osley and her husband Mike, brother Timothy Schneider and his wife Janice (Asbrock) , nieces Lisa Sierra-Foster and her husband Danny, Isha Emley-Strasser and her husband Dan, niece Danielle Brown, niece Kelsey Goodridge and her husband Jon, and nephew Keegan Swain along with a number of great nieces and nephews and good friends and neighbors.

Ray was a real gentleman--loyal, caring, giving, thoughtful, and compassionate. He managed the Titan Boys' Basketball team for my husband Jerry during his high school years and took incredible pride in his work. He and Jerry remained close until Jerry's untimely death nine years ago. Jerry was incredibly proud of all that Ray accomplished. Since Jerry's passing,, Ray has called me on every holiday and reminded me to spring forward or fall back twice a year. He warned me about falling temperatures and reminded me to keep my faucets running. Loyal to his coach to the very end, Ray wanted to make sure I was okay in Jerry's absence. I will miss those phone calls--and Ray. Linda Radtke

Ray was indeed so very proud... "Assistant Basketball Coach of the Year" when Titans played in the championships in Dayton!! He loved you and the Coach very much. Talked about his times with the team all the time. My condolences to you too, Tim

Ray showed us through his actions how to be humble, caring, loving, kind, and compassionate. Oh how I will miss our phone calls and visits. When I was having what I thought was a bad day the phone would ring I would answer and hear
”Hello Rob Hollaender this is your friend and old old co-worker Raymond Schneider”. Within a minute I realized my problems were pretty small and I should be thankful in all things. He would remind me to reset my clocks and call the next day to make sure I had. When I asked how he was doing more often than not I got a deep enthusiastic GREAT! (sounded just like his dad). He would share a story about working with his dad, Bob, recounting how heavy that darn tool was and I would laugh because I knew exactly what he was talking about. He dearly loved his family.
As our conversation would be coming to an end he’d remind me that our loved ones up in Heaven are looking down on us and if we mess up they will give us a loving kick in the backside to get us back on track. Then tell me that as I was falling asleep to think of my beautiful daughter, my grandmother, my dad , little Robbie and I will have happy happy dreams.

Ray you were the best. I will miss you my friend, but I know you are living those happy happy dreams in Heaven. I love you.

My condolences to the Schneider family and all his friends, he will be deeply missed. Take comfort in knowing he has left his mark on all of us and this world is a better place because of him.

Blessings from the Hollaender family

The Hollaenders, the family working in the company, You and Ron, took Ray in and were his 1st 2nd Family:) You empowered Ray as no one else had ever done, or could do. He was so proud of his 27 year career with Hollaender Mfg! Talked about those experiences all the time. You were one of his very special guardian angels, Rob. "Thanks" can never convey our deep gratitude. Tim

My prayers and condolences to Ray's family and close friends. He will be remembered as a man with a good soul and how proud he was of his Knight of Columbus. God Bless you Ray.

Dear Ray,
You brought such joy and love to Uncle Kenny & I.
We had such good times together playing cards and dominoes, listening to oldies and chair dancing. You and Uncle Kenny would make us all laugh until we just about peed our pants.

The good news is that you and your sweet, loving heart will be reunited with Uncle Kenny, your Mom & Dad and all the people you loved who left earth before you.
The bad news is this world and my life will be a little less sunny and enjoyable without you.

I will never forget you, Ray Dog Night.

Aunt LYNN/ Your sister...born on the very same day...7 hours apart❤️

I'm sorry Ray "took so much of your and Ken's money" at the card table Lynn:) He loved you two so much!
