Ryan Joseph Schnaare
1979 – 2012


Ryan was the son of my good friends, Bob and Loreen Schnaare.  Our families went on many vacations together. 

Ryan Joseph Schnaare, 32 of Kenosha, died tragically in an automobile accident on Friday, Jan. 20, 2012.

Born in Kenosha on Sept. 20, 1979, he was the son of Robert and Loreen (Nevoraski) Schnaare.

A lifelong resident of Kenosha, he attended local schools and was a 1998 graduate of Tremper High School. Ryan excelled in football, baseball and wrestling. He played on the Traveling Baseball Team and traveled to Australia with the Wisconsin High School All Star Football Team.

He was married to Abbie Phillips. That union later dissolved.

At the time of his death, Ryan was attending U.W. Parkside and was pursuing his dream of being a personal fitness trainer. He was formerly employed at Schnaare’s Heating and Air Conditioning.

He was a lifelong member of Lord of Life Lutheran Church and a former member of the Sheet Metal Workers Local #18. Ryan loved hunting, fishing, physical fitness and martial arts. He was a diehard Wisconsin fan who enjoyed cheering on the Brewers, Packers and Badgers. Ryan had a special place in his heart for his adorable niece, Alyssa, who he loved to spoil, and his dog, Brett.

Ryan is survived by his parents, Robert and Loreen Schnaare; his brother, Jason (Tammy-not a Packer Fan) Schnaare; his three nieces, Alyssa, Ashley and Kassidi; his nephew, Joshua; and his godmother, Marlene Torcaso.

He was further survived by his former wife, Abbie Phillips; and many loving aunts, uncles and cousins.

He was preceded in death by his maternal and paternal grandparents; his uncle, Jerry Hoeke and his godfather, Robert Will.
