Jon Schneider

Jonathan Paul Schneider, 71, of Laurel, passed away on March 29, 2019 at his winter home in Alamo, Texas. Jon was born to Herman and Eileen Schneider on September 16, 1947 in Billings. He graduated from Laurel High School in 1967, and enlisted in the United States Coast Guard in October of that year. He married his high school sweetheart Carolyn (Tootie) Vogel on August 31, 1968. Jon and Tootie lived on Guam and the bay area of California, settling in Stockton, California where they raised their three children. They moved back to Laurel in 1999, happy to return to their roots. Jon loved riding his motorcycle, swimming, fishing, and was an avid reader. He was a lifeguard at the Laurel pool in the 60s. He graduated from college in 1977 and enjoyed a career as a Registered Respiratory Therapist, working at St. Joseph's Hospital in Stockton for 22 years, then retiring from St. Vincent's Hospital in Billings in 2006. He loved working with children with respiratory diseases, and enjoyed being a preceptor to many Respiratory students. He also loved being with his kids, grandkids, and great granddaughters.

In 2008, Jon and Tootie started spending their winters in the Rio Grande Valley in Texas, where they met some wonderful new friends. One of their favorite places to go was South Padre Island, walking the beach and dining on shrimp from the Gulf of Mexico.

Jon and Tootie celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary last August with their family and many friends. 

Jon was preceded in death by his parents, sister Joni, and brother-in-law Paul Vogel.

Jon is survived by his wife, Tootie, daughter Julie (Ross) Bloebaum, son Jon Jr. (Sarah), son Todd, 10 grandchildren, and 7 great-granddaughters. Jon is also survived by his brother Tony (Sandie), and their family.

A memorial service was held in Alamo, Texas. A Celebration of Life service will be held at a later date, with burial in the Yellowstone National Veterans Cemetery in Laurel. This kind, gentle soul will always be in our hearts.
