Obituary for James Anthony Schneemann

James Anthony Schneemann, age 72 and a longtime resident of Brighton, Michigan, went to be with his Lord on May 5, 2014 after suffering for several years with Parkinson�s disease and Lewy Body dementia. He last resided at Ashley Court for Alzheimer�s Care.

Jim was born in Detroit, Michigan, February 24, 1942, to Lorraine & Anthony Karl Schneemann who preceded him in death. He was a graduate of Southfield High School in 1959 and Lawrence Tech in 1975. He retired from E & E Engineering in Warren where he worked for 43 years as an industrial salesman.

Jim was a devoted follower of Jesus Christ. He served many years at Community Bible Church as elder, deacon, Sunday School teacher, youth leader, and worship leader. His main hobby was music. He played the tuba and bass fiddle as well as many other instruments. He was noted for his mechanical ability and his willingness to help others. Jim�s laugh was his trademark�a deep, guttural, belly-shaking laugh. Jim will be missed very much. His greatest wish was that all his friends & family would trust Jesus Christ as their Lord & Savior so they could be with him forever in heaven.

Jim is survived by his wife of 50 years, Mary Lou, his son Kirk (Heather), his daughter Tami Jones (Ray), five grandchildren (Kailey, Rachel, Trevor, Ryan, and Becca), his sister Joanne Schindel (Ron), his mother-in-law Jean Hagopian, his step mother Marie Schneemann, several in-laws and extended family.

Visitation will be held at the Community Bible Church, 7372 Grand River Avenue in Brighton on Friday, May 9, from 1-8PM. A Funeral Service will be held at the church on Saturday, May 10, at 11AM with a luncheon to follow. Burial will be by cremation.

Box 551, Howell, MI 48844-0551. For further information please contact Lynch & Sons Funeral Directors, Brighton at 810-229-2905.
