Leo A. Schrider, 83, of Massillon, passed away quietly, early Sunday morning, April 24, 2022.  Born February 21, 1939, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, a son to the late Leo J. and Wanda (Walicki) Schrider, Leo earned a bachelor’s degree in Petroleum Engineering from the University of Pittsburgh.  He spent much of his professional career in the oil and gas industry including several years with Belden & Blake Corporation.  Following his retirement, he worked as an investment consultant in energy services with Fofm LLC, of Canton.

A member of St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Massillon, Leo was a gentle man of calm, quiet strength.  A devoted husband and a loving and supportive dad and grandpa, he placed his wife, his family, and his faith at the center of his life.  He pursued a healthy and vigorous lifestyle: enjoying the outdoors, waterskiing and boating; he trained for and ran several marathons – as much for the personal challenge as for the physical conditioning and discipline, but snow skiing – especially out west, was the sport he truly loved.  And being together with Jayne and the family made every occasion all the better.

Predeceased by his parents; Leo is survived by his wife and best friend, Jayne (Blanton) Schrider, of the home; their children, Jason A. (Anna) Schrider, of Parma, Michigan and Lia W. (Brian) Shook, of Cherryville, North Carolina; grandchildren, Leo and Cal Schrider and Morgan and Ethan Shook; and his sister, Mrs. Lois (Schrider) Wehofer, of Murfreesboro, Tennessee.

Fr. A. Edward Gretchko, pastor of St. Mary’s, will join Leo’s family and friends to celebrate a funeral Mass at the noon hour, Tuesday, May 3, 2022, in St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Massillon.  The family will receive condolences for one hour before Mass, from 10:30 – 11:30 a.m., at Atkinson Feucht Hare Funeral Home in Massillon.  A formal procession to the church will form at the funeral home.  Leo will be placed into rest following a graveside service at Old Blanton Cemetery in Manchester, Tennessee.  Your memories and condolences are always welcome and may be added to our on-line guestbook at
