Bob Schneller was born in Los Angeles, California July 9, 1935 to Matthew James and Mary Jane 
Schneller. Bob passed away peacefully on March 12, 2024 at his home, surrounded by immediate family 
in Grand Junction, Colorado.

Bob was always active and enjoyed staying busy. He lived a life full of achievements and 
adventures. He was a loving father raising two daughters, Linda Gordon (of Spokane WA), and Susan 
Hollingshead (of Grand Junction, CO).

Resort and where he met Vicki Hanson. Together they have traveled much of the world and enjoyed 
their married life. Bob’s two daughters and Vicki’s two sons completed their family.

Leaving California in 1993 was a big change for Bob and Vicki. With the best of two worlds the 
mountains and Lake Powell close by proved to be just right. Boating, jet skiing, water and snow 
skiing, snowmobiling, and most recently ATV exploring from their cabin atop the Grand Mesa.
Bob and Vicki enjoyed life together.

“Call Bob” was a normal thing to do when something needed fixing. As a hobby, among many things, 
Bob was a creator of lovely Stained Glass art. He loved to build things and always finished what he 
set out to do.

Program. Starting out as an instructor he quickly moved on to Chief Trainer, State Coordinator, 
Regional Coordinator and National Coordinator. He was also chosen as Outstanding AARP Volunteer in

trained over sixteen hundred new hospital volunteers. He also pioneered the helicopter tours so 
school children could see the facilities.
