Robert (Bob) L. Schnitzer, 80, of Shippensburg, and formerly of Amberson, PA went home to be with his Lord and Savior on Saturday, May 2, 2020, at his home.

He was born on November 23, 1939 in Dover, NJ, a son of the late Luther C. and Cecilia L. (Pape) Schnitzer.
Bob spent his childhood and youth in Boonton Township, NJ and was a 1957 graduate of Boonton High School.

Bob moved to Amberson in 1993 and retired from HighMark Blue Shield in 1997 as a computer programmer.
He was a very well loved and respected man. His kindness and generosity to others was very evident, as he lived and demonstrated his Christian faith.

Bob loved adventure. He enjoyed being in the outdoors, taking in all of God’s beauty and nature. He enjoyed deer and elk hunting, having been on an elk hunt in CO with his one son, grandson and two close friends. He also delighted in spending time at his hunting camp in Addison, NY, hunting deer and spending time with his family and friends on these outings and other visits throughout the years. He also enjoyed spending time with his loving companion Lynne at the beach in Ocean City, MD.

After retirement, Bob found pleasure pursuing casual farming and greatly enjoyed helping his many Amberson Valley friends.

Bob attended the Amberson United Methodist Church and was active in different programs and events where he could serve his Lord.

Surviving are his three children, John Schnitzer and wife Jane, Wendy Hummel, Paul Schnitzer and wife Lori, granddaughters Megan Geoghegen and husband Josh, Kim Wilson and husband Ben, grandsons Adam Schnitzer and Michael Clouser and wife Kelly, and great grandchildren: Peyton, Kelsie, Makaela, Connor, Matti and Lydia . He is also survived by two nieces, two nephews and his sister-in-law Mary Schnitzer.
Bob is also survived by his loving companion of seven years, Lynne Price of Shippensburg, and formerly of Dry Run.

In addition to his parent’s, Bob was preceded in death by his brother, John E. Schnitzer and his grandson Nathan Schnitzer.

Bob’s family would like to extend a very heartfelt thank you to SpiriTrust Lutheran Home Care and Hospice for their kindness, support and dedication to Bob’s care.

Bob’s funeral arrangements have been entrusted to the Fogelsanger-Bricker Funeral Home & Crematorium, Inc., Shippensburg. There will be no public service viewing/visitation or internment.

Or contributions in his memory may be made to SpiriTrust Lutheran Home Care and Hospice, 2700 Luther Dr, Chambersburg, PA 17202.

My Dearest Bob,
I love you so very much and miss you terribly. Your long hard battle is over, your storm has ended, your pain and suffering are no more.
I rejoice in knowing you are in Heaven with Jesus, completely healed and have been reunited with those you love. God keeps his promises. God has given you life eternal and that life is in His Son. Your salvation was secure when you accepted His Son so many years ago. Your new life has begun. I couldn’t be happier for you.
I have and always will cherish and treasure the wonderful memories of our life together, so full of love and happiness. What a very precious and special time we shared. I am so thankful to God for creating wonderful you and for Him putting you in my life. I look forward to the day I, too, will come to Heaven, be with Jesus and see you again. Your loving Lynne

My heart is heavy, Rob, but I will always remember all that you, Johnny and I shared growing up. You always made my visits up from Nutley such fun adventures. Swimming off your dock, skating and canoeing up the river to St. Clare's, picnics in the back yard, and trips to Sokol Camp. Throughout all your troubles, you made me laugh with all your funny comments and dry sense of humor. You will forever stay in my heart. I love you, O.M. and your saved texts will keep me going. Always, O.W 💘
