George Schneider. 74, passed away this past Saturday at his Norwood home where he had been under the care of Hospice of Cincinnati for multiple health issues since Thanksgiving. Despite his failing eyesight, Mr. Schneider never let being blind stop him from leading a very active life. He helped his children deliver the Cincinnati Post and Times-Star in their neighborhood, led Cub Scout Pack 12 as a Webelos leader and helped two sons achieve the rank of Eagle Scout. In addition to his wife of 50 years, Lois, Mr. Schneider is survived by 6 children, 3 of whom reside in Norwood: Councilperson Victor Schneider, Norwood firefighter George Schneider, and Timothy Schneider. Visitation is 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. Wednesday at Naegele, Kleb & Ihlendorf Funeral Home, 3900 Montgomery Road, Norwood. Mass of Christian burial is 11:00 a.m. Thursday at Holy Trinity Church, 2420 Drex Ave. in Norwood, with visitation at the church from 10:00 a.m. Thursday until services begin.
