Gary M. Schneider Memorial Sponsorship

In Loving Memory of

Gary M. Schneider
May 28, 1961- August 27, 2010

Patriot, Dog-Lover, Professional Photographer, Kodak Medallion of Excellence Winner, Graduate of Sherwood High School–Class of 1979 & Montgomery College, Marksman, Range Safety Officer, Skilled & Dedicated Retail Camera Store Manager for over 2 decades in the Washington DC area, Gary believed in “COUNTRY FIRST” and proudly flew the “Don’t Tread on Me” flag alongside the Stars and Stripes. Creative and witty with a keen sense of humor, he was a gentle giant with a heart of gold–always ready to help a friend in need. Gary and his beloved husky-shepherd dog, Shana, would say, “Thank you for serving and we haven’t forgotten your sacrifice”
