Larry was born February 11, 1953 at Scottsbluff to Carl and Katheryn (Asmus) Schneider. He attended school at Redington, graduating from Bridgeport High School in 1971. Larry played football, wrestled, ran track and participated in FFA while in high school. He attended the College of National Business in Rapid City.
Larry was united in marriage to Deb Bodeman on June 16, 1973 at Hayes Center, Nebraska. The couple moved to McCook where they lived for a few years before returning to the Redington area to farm. In 1990 they moved into Bridgeport and Larry drove truck for several years. He worked for CPS for 17 years, and most recently worked for Rick Newkirk the past two years.
Larry was a member of the Redington Church and attended New Life Assembly of God Church after moving into Bridgeport. He enjoyed fishing, playing Snooker, roping, and playing Texas Hold Em but his greatest sense of pride was his family.
