A mountain area resident for more than 40 years, his generosity extended throughout the community and has left a lasting impact.
After being an employee of PG&E for over 20 years, Roger left the company and began his real estate career. In 1991, Yosemite Brokerage was created to help families achieve their dream of home ownership, a goal that it continues to reach today. Along his real estate career, he also developed many properties in the area and was one of the founding members of Bank of Madera County, which was later purchased by Central Valley Community Bank.
Roger, who learned how to drive a boat before a car, grew up spending his summers at Bass Lake both working and playing. He greatly enjoyed boating, golfing and spending time with family and friends.
Mr. Schneider was preceded in death by his parents, and his brother Michael.
He is survived by his wife of nearly 40 years, Nancy, of Coarsegold; children Nicholas and wife Ericka, also of Coarsegold; and Brooke of Oceanside; two grandchildren; and siblings Susan Graham of Oakhurst, and Timothy of Fresno.
A memorial service will be held 2 p.m., on Friday, June 9, at Oakhill Cemetery in Oakhurst. Reception will follow from 3 – 6 p.m., in The Pines Resort Lakeview Room.
