Jeffrey Ivan Schneider

Jeffrey Ivan Schneider, 70, of Thornburg, PA. Passed away on Tuesday, October 31, 2023, after battling cancer. He was born in Cleveland, OH on January 12, 1953, the son of the late Paul and Ilene (Shubin) Schneider.

Jeff was a loving husband to wife Laure for 39 years and adored raising his children, Caroline and Lewis, and took pride in seeing them become independent, productive adults.  He was the owner of the Pittsburgh Funny Bone Comedy Club, with his brother Keith, for over 30 years and enjoyed the great friendships and memories he made there. He was a witty man that kept friends laughing. His artistic passions included photography and he enjoyed hours in the darkroom. He was an avid writer and compiled many essays, plays and works of poetry over his lifetime.  He loved deep conversation with select friends and relatives concerning philosophy, the state of the world and how we fit into it and how annoying navigating Pittsburgh is.  Not surprising, he was a loyal Cleveland sports fan to the end.  He passed away far too soon, and he will be greatly missed by his family and all his loving friends.

He is survived by his wife Laure (Donnelly) Schneider; children Caroline Schneider and Lewis Schneider; brother Keith Schneider (Robin Rarie) and nephew and niece Joe and Catie Schneider. Also survived by cousins Kirk J. Schneider (Jurate & Benjamin), Lisa Kulkin (Scott & Matthew), Traci Elgart (Scott, Ryan & Taylor) and Evan Goldring and brothers and sisters-in-law Patrick and Lynne Curran (Scott, Andrew & Kevin) and Joseph and Jayme Rafferty

  1. Thanks Jeff for accepting me into the Milwaukee and Pittsburgh FUNNY BONE families. Initially, you intimidated the heck out of me but I came to respect you so much, I left Comedy in 1989 but nearly 2 decades later found you again on facebook and a friendship developed that I really treasured.
    R.I.P. my friend and thank you for all the great memories,
