Larry Schneider, Husband Of Springfield Mayor Ann Schneider Dies Unexpectedly, He Was 73
SPRINGFIELD TENNESSEE: (Smokey Barn News) – Larry Schneider, husband of Springfield Mayor Ann Schneider has died. He was 73.
Larry had just been given the green light after a battle with cancer and things were improving. “We were making plans,” Ann told Smokey Barn News Tuesday. “You just never know.”
Ann said that she and Larry had enjoyed a wonderful week together going to dinners and events celebrating Larry’s recovery and the holidays.
A chance date put Ann and Larry together. It was a date that would last for twenty-seven-years. Now Ann is devastated and leaning on family and friends as she writes a new chapter in her life.
Ann told Smokey Barn News that Larry will take one last ride in his favorite pickup following funeral services on Thursday. The plan is to place Larry’s casket in the back of the truck for the procession. It was the idea of Ann’s brother Horace Newberry. Ann said it just seemed like something Larry would have loved.
Ann wanted to especially thank Dr. Sabi Kumar for his compassionate treatment, care, and concern. “It’s difficult to put into words how wonderful Dr. Kumar has been to my family, I will always be grateful to him.”
