Michael Layton Schneller passed away on July 7th, 2014 in Bay St. Louis, MS at the age of 43. A resident of Katy, TX, he was born in Metairie, LA on May 10, 1971 to Sylvia Johns Schneller and John Schneller III. Michael grew up in New Orleans and attended St. Pius X and graduated from Jesuit High School in 1989. He attended LSU before graduating from the University of New Orleans. Michael married his wife Julie in 2001 and was devoted to his wife and children. He was a dedicated educator and taught at Andrew Jackson High School in St. Bernard Parish before moving to Texas in 2006. He was proud to have found his dream job, teaching Culinary Arts at the Miller Career and Technology Center in Katy, TX. If you met Michael once, you had a friend for life. In New Orleans, Baton Rouge, Houston/Katy, Atlanta, Myrtle Beach, SC, and other countless locales, Michael made hundreds of close friends, who made sure to attend occasional "Schnella Fest" gatherings when he came into town. Mike had what so many of us crave: the love and adoration not only of his family but of all those he touched throughout his life. He is survived by: his loving wife, Julie Markt Schneller, his son, Michael Layton Schneller Jr. his daughter, Nola Marie Schneller, his parents, John and Sylvia Schneller of Bay St. Louis, MS, his brother John (Tricia) Schneller IV of Katy, TX and his sister Tanya (Jim) Schneller Busenlener of New Orleans. Michael leaves behind 11 nieces and nephews, loving aunts, uncles, and cousins, and countless friends.
