Joseph Schneider

Joseph Schneider left this life peacefully on January 13, 2013. Joseph was very generous in many ways, easy going, welcoming, and a true gentleman who never raised his voice to anyone, ever. He was married and had two children and, after becoming a widower, met Joan Leopold in 1977 and they were married in 1981. He could not have been a greater husband or more wonderful stepfather. Joseph retired from a lifelong career with Grumman Aerospace where he helped build many airplanes for the Navy and became a legend for his work on building the Lunar Module for the first Moon Landing. Funeral Services will take place at 11:00am on Tuesday, January 15, 2013 at Temple Shearith Israel, 46 Peaceable Street, Ridgefield, CT 06877. Contributions in Joseph’s memory may be made to the Association of Religious Communities, 325 Main St., Danbury, CT 06810 or to

Kane Funeral Home, 25 Catoonah St., Ridgefield is in charge of arrangements.
