I worked with Hollis on his last project in Beaumont. In my short time knowing Hollis he quickly became one of my favorite people on the project. Always smiling and always in a good mood he was fun even when he was mad. As a fellow woodworker we talked about our passions and how much he was looking forward to retirement and so he could spend more time building his projects. I hoped to spend more time with him oneday and now I am very sad to know he has past but, I am thankful for the short time I had to know him.

I pray his family finds peace in knowing he touched so many with who he was.

Heaven gained a great angel to watch over his loved ones that he suddenly had to leave behind. Hollis was such a great man, the Schneider clan always had a great time on all the trail rides when he and Kay were around. So sorry for your loss, I know he will be in you hearts and thoughts forever.

Mr. Hollis I cannot believe you are gone. It doesn't seem real. I never got the chance to tell you how much u mean to my family. Thank u will never be enough for what u and kay have done for my family but thank u from the bottom of my heart. Thank u so much for helping us with my boys. Always there to get them off the bus or just have Sammy over to play with ur dogs. The boys love u so much. Thanks for always helping my parents and my brother. They could always count on u to be there no matter what. We will miss u so much. Going outside and u not being there is going to hurt so much. Kay anything u need we are here. Love u both so much.
