Frank Schnyder, 81

Frank Schnyder, 81 passed away on Sunday, May 22, 2016 at Elizabeth House in Hendersonville. He was the son of Siegfried and Carolína Schnyder who precede him in death. He is survived by the Schnyder family, his brother John and sister-in-law Pat, his son Brad, niece and nephew Joan and Michael and his great niece Molly.
“Frankie” was born and raised in the Dana Community of Hendersonville. He graduated from Dana High School, and from Mars Hill College where he played basketball. He was a US Army veteran.
With 40 years of service, Frankie retired from Cranston Printworks, where he made many dear friends. During his retirement, he worked with lifetime friend Flon Lamb at Orchard Trace Golf Course. Frankie was something of a golf legend in Hendersonville, where he shot 7 holes in one while playing every course in the county many times.
Frankie loved Classical Music, Carolina Basketball, and his pipe. His wry sense of humor, grumpy demeanor and kind heart will be sorely missed by his family and friends.
At Frank’s request there will be no service or visitation.
Condolence cards may be sent to the family at or PO Box 945, Hendersonville, NC 28793.
