A livestream of the service will be viewable below shortly before the service:
Leo A. Schneider passed away on December 7, 2021, at St. Catherine’s North in Fargo, ND. Leo was born August 11, 1934, in Esmond, ND, to Kasimer and Katherine Schneider. His father passed away when he was only an infant, so Leo was raised by his mother with help from older siblings. Leo was the youngest of 21 children and had many who supported his growth. When Leo was done with high school, he joined the Air Force in 1955 and served until 1959 as part of the military police. When he was discharged, he started a career in accounting. He then followed his brothers in a career of iron work. He followed this path for 25 years until he moved on to Police Security at Veterans Hospital in Fargo, ND. Leo married the love of his life Delores Nicklaus May 6, 1960. They raised their seven children mostly in the Fargo, ND, area. After retirement, Leo and Delores did a lot of traveling and visiting many of their large family members. Leo enjoyed his large vegetable garden on 24th Street along with the beautiful rose beds he had. He loved to feed the squirrels and birds up until the end. Leo and Delores stayed in the Fargo area to be close to many of their family members. He always enjoyed the family get togethers for the holidays and the summer barbeques. Leo was preceded in death by his father Kasimer, his mother Katherine, 20 brothers and sisters, his infant daughter Patricia and his grandson Joshua Johnson. Leo is survived by his wife Delores and his children Darwin Schneider, Doreen (Mark) Olson, Robert (Trish) Schneider, Dr. Rodney (Chesta) Schneider, DeAnna ( James) Gadberry, Rachelle (Tom) Riepe and Jennifer (David) White. He is also survived by 18 grandchildren and 19 great grandchildren, along with an abundance of nieces and nephews. A memorial service will be held at 5 p.m. Friday, Dec. 10, 2021 with visitation starting at 4 p.m. at Boulger Funeral Home and Celebration of Life Center, Fargo.

  2. My sincerest condolences, thoughts and prayers to the entire Schneider family.
    My memories of Leo are from my teenage years in the late ‘70’s and early ‘80’s as a very imposing figure who was kind to me. I trust there are other memories that will sustain your family through these difficult times. May God bless you and be your strength as you travel this part of your journey.

  3. Sorry for your loss! Lots of great memories. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all!! Love the Monson Family

  4. We are so sorry to hear of Uncle Leo passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. Al and Kathleen Schneider children.

  5. Dear Aunt Delores and family,
    My deepest condolences to all of you. I remember Uncle Alfy with his kind eyes, that typical snicker/laugh, and the good times he had when he was together with all his brothers and sisters! They sure were a LOUD clan! May we, as the next generation, carry on their memories and stories! Love and hugs.

  6. Remembering times at the lake near Pelican Rapids: Kasey, Ed, and Alfy, and their three blue station wagons – and kids sleeping in the backs of them, trying to keep the mosquitos out. The dads out in the lake tossing the kids so high in the air before they hit the water. Dads grilling chicken to feed that crew, beer can in one hand, grill tongs in the other – and a few “discussions” about how to do it “right” . I remember Alfy’s smile behind that mustache. With Alfy being the last of that generation, no doubt Grandma has her hands full once again keeping that great big clan in line up there now that they are all together again.

  7. So sorry to hear of your loss. We are thinking of you, Shelly, and sending you and your family our deepest sympathy.
