Richard Lewis Schneider, Jr. “RJ” left us on 12/13/20. He was born in Red Bank, NJ where he resided until his passing. RJ was a RBR 1992 graduate. RJ was an active fireman in the Westside Hose Company No. 1, Engine 96 in Red Bank as an Ex-Captain and volunteer for nearly 30 years. RJ owned his own fiberglass company for many years. He was then employed with Amtrak since 2009 as a Machine Operator, Crew Foreman and Trackman. His service to the community is an example for all of us. He could build anything just by sight. RJ was a fun guy with a heart of gold. He had a smile we will never forget. He was an avid hunter and fisherman. He loved boating, being on the water, cooking and gardening.

RJ was predeceased by his Father Richard Lewis Schneider in 2004, his Aunt Nancy Raymond in 2016 and his Aunt Beatrice Welsh in 2015. He was a care giver for his Aunt Dorothy Setaro who predeceased RJ earlier in 2020. His grandmother, Lena Cerrone, also predeceased RJ in 1993.

RJ was a loving father, son, brother and grandson who is survived by his children Daniel Schneider and Allie Schneider, his devoted mother Marie Mieloch and her husband George, his adoring sister Jacquelynn Attanasio and her husband Ralph, and his loving grandparents Virginia and Michael Toscano. He loved his precious dogs Bailey and Stella.
