October 20, 1960 - March 27, 2022
William J. Schneider, III (Billy) passed away unexpectedly March 27, 2022. Billy was the first of seven children born October 20, 1960, to the late William J. Schneider, Jr. and Sally Schneider (Hyer) now residing in Purling, NY. He was also pre-deceased by his loving grandparents William and Grace Schneider of Glendale, N.Y. and James and Mary C. Hyer of Athens, N.Y. Billy is survived by his mother Sally Schneider, his brothers and sisters Dr. Sally Sharkey, Dr. James Schneider (Kate), Kathleen Schneider, Dr. Robert Schneider (Sarah), Patricia Schneider Delaney (John), and Susan Russell (Stacey). He is also survived by his loving nieces and nephews Michael, Sarah, Madeline and Grace Sharkey, Zach and Katie Russell, William and Emma Schneider and Rogan Delaney in addition to many cousins and close family friends. Billy attended The College of St Rose for business and went on to run a tree cutting business and work in the family businesses. He was best known for running the family Roller Rink in Purling, N.Y. He made sure everyone always felt welcome and his big heart, laugh and sense of humor will be greatly missed. Billy was brilliant and knew more sports stats than anyone we knew and never missed a trivia question much to the chagrin to his brothers and sisters. He loved sports and Saturday ‘spaghetti westerns’ with his Dunkin coffee and a scratch off. He always was happy to see you and loved his family. He never had an unkind word about anyone. He was one of the nicest men to be around and his daily phone calls will be missed by all of us. A private family Catholic service took place at The Richards Funeral Home, 29 Bross Street, Cairo, N.Y., 12413, and interment followed at The St. Patrick’s Cemetery in Catskill, N.Y. on Wednesday, March 30, 2022.

Box 1000, Dept.142, Memphis, TN, 38148-0142 or to The Make a Wish Foundation, 3550 North Central Avenue, Suite 300, Phoenix, AZ, 85012-2107. Condolences may be made at www.richardsfuneralhomeinc.net.
