A great Crusader, Bernie Schneider ’55 passed away on August 24. Our prayers are with the Schneider Family, Bernie’s Crusader brothers, and all those who knew him.

Schneider was a revered teacher, coach, Crusader brother and family man. He was inducted into Riordan’s Hall of Fame for his achievements in basketball, baseball and golf, and also played at USF. Later he authored “Glory and Heartbreak,” a history of Bay Area sports, that covered the 1955 and 1956 championship runs for the dons.

A funeral mass will be held on Friday at St. Ignatius Church at 11:00 a.m. Read more about Schneider’s life in these articles by USF Athletics and the Examiner.
