September 14, 1941 retired Widowed 2
I attended college for one year after high school and did not like it. Then I went to work for three years and was then drafted into the Army. I spent 18 months in Germany in the Signal Corp and went on many field problems.

After the service, the GI Bill paid for my college education at the Milwaukee School of Engineering. I then went to work for the 3M Company and worked in three different states.

I was married to my wife Linda while going to college and she was a teacher in the West Allis school system. We had two boys and they are both married. Our youngest son played football for the University of Iowa in the late 90's.

My 15 minutes of fame.
During our son last year at Iowa he had very good grades and was presented a check from the Burger King Corporation for the general scholarship fund of the university. This was present to the university before the football game with Wisconsin in 1998. It was very breath taking to be out on the field with all those people in th stadium.

My wife passed away, in 2003, from lung cancer, that had spread in her body. She only lived one month after the discovery of the cancer.

After she passed away, I joined a Kiwanis Club in Naperville. Later in that year, I met a lovely lady, who had lost her husband to lung cancer. We were able to travel together for 4 years before we discovered that she had colon cancel. Her cancer had spread and she lived 13 months before passing.

I am retired and volunteer in Naperville. The American Cancer Society has a Road to Recovery program, where we drive cancer patients to appointments and this is very rewarding program. I also volunteer at the local hospital doing various things as needed.

Traveling and visiting the grand children is a high priorityin my life now. I tell people to enjoy life now, because you never know when something will happen and then it will be too late to do anything.

June 05, 1941 retired high school English teacher Married 3
   I graduated from UW-Madison and taught high school English for 24 years, the last 18 at Kettle Moraine High School.  My husband, Dewey, was a teacher and coach and we have 3 children and 4 grandkids living in Seattle, Atlanta, and Portland, Or.  We visit them often and have traveled to Ireland, Australia, and China.  I enjoy reading, playing bridge, knitting and gardening.

   My Most Embarrassing Moment was when the buttons popped open down the front of my blouse as I was exuberantly gesturing while reading a scene from Shakespeare's McBeth to a class.  Thirty-one seniors gave me a standing ovation and I thought I had done my usual super job.  Then one of the girls in the front row told me I was wearing a lovely bra.

June 03, 1941 Retired teacher Married 3

After high school, I attended UW-River Falls for a year and Carroll College for a year.  I then married my high school sweetheart Sandy Falter (class of 1960) and returned to River Falls and received my BS degree in animal science. 

Upon graduation, I accepted a job with Wilson  Company in Albert Lea, Minnesota.  Two years later, our first daughter Jill was born.  Later I was transferred to Fairmont, Minnesota where I bought livestock.  That is where our second daughter Debbie was born.  After three years and two daughters, we moved to a farm between Watertown and Johnson Creek.  While farming there for six years, our third daughter Cindy was born.  While living there, I commuted to UW-Madison to earn a Master's Degree in education. 

We then moved to DePere, Wisconsin where I taught high school agriculture for the next 28 years.  During those 28 years, we developed a hobby of keeping bees.  Since retiring from teaching, we've been operating between 500 - 600 beehives for pollination and honey production.  We're now thinking of retiring from the bee business because life of fishing, playing cards, and drinking beer is looking better and better every day.

My most embarrassing moment -- actually, one of many -- came during a fieldtrip with high school students in Madison.  As we approached Madison with a busload of students, the student directly behind me said he thought he was getting carsick.  I told him to relax because we were almost there and then he would feel better.

About a minute later, he stood up, and all of his breakfast landed on me.  It ran down my neck, over my shoulders, and even found its way into my hair.  Needless to say, I did not smell very good.

Since these were the only clothes I had with me, I had the bus driver drop me off at a public restroom near our destination while the other teacher took the students.  Once in the restroom, I removed my shirt and tried to clean up with paper towels and soap I found there.  That was not an easy task, I might add.

While I was doing this, two businessmen walked into the restroom.  They were dressed in three-piece suits with briefcases, the whole nine yards.  They immediately turned on their heels and headed out.  As they left, I heard one remark, "I didn't think there were any homeless people in Madison." 

I finally found my way back to the group.  The first student I ran into was the one who threw up on me.  His first words to me were, "Hey, Mr. Schneider, I feel lots better now."

Fame, even fifteen minutes, unlike embarrassing moments, has eluded me.  The only time I came even close was on a trip with my oldest daughter, Jill.  Each year we take a father/daughter trip, and one year we decided to go to Las Vegas.  Once our plane had landed, we had to get a ride to our hotel.  As luck would have it, a limo driver said he was going to our hotel and would give us a lift.  As soon as we got in the back of the limo, he said, "You'll never guess who just got out of the seat you're sitting in."  Before we could guess, he said, "John Travolta was sitting there just five minutes ago."  The seat was still warm.  Then again, I think the seats are always warm in Las Vegas.

June 23, 1941 Retired -- Married
I have been married to Alice for 41 years.  We met while skiing in the Upper Peninsula, Michigan.  She is a retired librarian and I am a retired Distribution & Traffic Manager.  I drove truck and bus to help get through college and when I needed a job.  We have lived here in Mequon for the past 30 years.

Interests:We like to travel and have been throughout Europe and most of the US.  Special trips have been to New Zealand and Australia.  We especially like train travel and a highlight was an overnight ride on The Ghan in Australia last fall. 
We have friends throughout the US and world through 4-H, curling and lawn bowling.  We also maintain relationships with high school, college and Army friends.

15 Minutes of Fame: 
In 1976 we scored an Eight End (or perfect score) in curling, a game which is played on ice,. It is more rare than a hole- in-one in golf.  It was an expensive night as we had to "buy the house."
