  • On September 30, 2022

Albert Karl Schneider, age 92, formerly of Crafton, PA, went to be with his Lord and Savior on September 22, 2022, while surrounded by family.

Albert was born March 27, 1930, in Overbrook, PA, to Gustav & Emmy Schneider.

Loving Father of Karen (Stephen) Odell, Diane (Peter) Schell, Alan (Heather) Schneider, Priscilla Heeter. Stepfather of Jeffrey (Mary Jeanne) Nobers, Jan (Neva) Nobers. Brother of Gretchen (Sanford) Schulert and Arthur Schneider. Grandfather ”Pup-Pup” to Kristin & Rachel Odell, Jennette (Joshua) Lundberg, Evan (Anna) Schell, Emma Schell, Amelia & Owen Schneider, Katelyn & Kelsey Heeter. Step-grandfather to Leah & Gracie Atkinson, Emily & Matthew Nobers, Leah (Brian) Nimmo, Jesse Nobers. Great-Grandfather to 7 great-grandchildren.

Albert was preceded in death by his wife of 49 years and mother of his five children, Priscilla Schneider, his son, Glenn; his wife of five years, Agnes “Jo” Nobers-Schneider; his parents, Gustav & Emmy Schneider & his sister, Violet Bissett.

Throughout his life, Al faithfully served his family, church, community, and country. He brought joy to many with his spunky sense of humor and zest for life. Al received a Purple Heart after being wounded in the Korean War. Upon his return from war, he worked as a general contractor and business owner of G.A. Schneider & Son, specializing in building churches and commercial properties around the Pittsburgh area. Al married and proudly raised a family of five with his wife, Priscilla. Known for their hospitality, a community of friends and neighbors routinely gathered around Al and Priscilla’s table where everyone was welcome.

In later years, he renovated properties for the Pittsburgh Public Schools. Once retired, Al spent his time with family, helping neighbors, and volunteering his services at church. Al was an active member of The Bible Chapel for over 50 years. His humble service, often behind the scenes, demonstrated what it looked like to follow Jesus.

A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, November 12, 2022 @ 11 a.m. at  The Bible Chapel, 300 Gallery Dr, McMurray, PA 15317. Interment will be private.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to The Bible Chapel’s “Mercy Fund” at the above address.

The family extends special thanks to the amazing team at OSPTA Hospice.

After being badly wounded in Korea Dec. 24, 1953, the Army patched Al up and since he was a carpenter they put him to work building the buildings that became the peace talks with North Korea on the 38th parallel. His wounds bothered him his whole life especially on cold, damp days. I fondly remember my brother who was eight years older but took me with him many places including on dates with his girlfriend Priscilla, whom he met at the huge roller skate place The Lexington. We worked on our stamp collections together many hours and our crystal radio sets listening to KDKA, KQV and other stations coming through the crystal and our headphones. He even took me up into his very neat tree house (much to our mom's displeasure!).All those memories were from our house at 2514 Homehurst Ave. Pittsburgh (which is still there). He taught me how to play marbles in the alley behind our house. I will always miss US Army #US23897056.....rest in peace Al. Love, your brother Art.
Al was such kind, loving and fun man to be around. It was an honor to care for him as well as laugh and joke with him. He will be deeply missed and never forgotten! <3
