Visitation is from 5-7 p.m. on Monday, March 15, 2021 at Beth Haven Baptist Church, 1158 W. Carson City Road (M-57), Sheridan, where funeral services will be held at 12 Noon on Tuesday, March 16, 2021.  The Rev. Kevin Crowell, pastor of Beth Haven Baptist Church, will officiate and burial will follow at Sheridan Cemetery.

  54. Matt on March 14, 2021 at 8:54 am

    Ed, still Eddie to me, you have gone home now, guided by faith and by the light of those you loved and lost. Your loved ones are here aching as we grieve your passing with the memories of your life. I’m not sure if you knew this or not, but you were an inspiration to many, myself included. I remember spending many of my childhood weekends sitting beneath the stadium lights watching You, Tom, and Rich live out your dreams. One probably shouldn’t have favorite cousins, but let’s be honest, the Schneider brothers were somebody I always looked up to. You will be missed and my heart breaks for your family, but all the fond memories will help us to be okay. Rest easy, Eddie.



  55. Anna (Ruwersma) Tanner on March 15, 2021 at 1:00 am

    Leah , my heart broke for you when I heard the news of your husband. I have been non stop thinking and praying for you the last few days all through out the day. And I won’t stop. I’m praying for Gods strength and grace in your life for the days ahead. And for wisdom to answer the many questions asked by your little ones. Hugs to you.

    Dear Leah and children,
    I was so grieved to read if your husband’s death. It must be such a shock. I am praying right now that the Lord comforts you and you find your peace in Him. He is going to take care of you and your precious babies.
    I knew you when you were a baby and your parents and grandparents are dear people. We moved from Butternut when you were about 3, so you wouldn’t remember us. My heart grieves with you, Leah. God bless and keep you.
