Henry James Schnetter, age 58, of Sioux City, Iowa, and formerly of Alta, Iowa, died on August 26, 2017, at St. Luke's Regional Medical Center in Sioux City.

A son of Robert and Malvena (Sievert) Schnetter, Henry was born on July 18, 1959, in Storm Lake, Iowa. Baptized as an infant in Pocahontas, he, also, attended school in Pocahontas until the third grade when he transferred to the Alta elementary school. Then, in 1978, he graduated from Alta High School. While attending high school, he worked at Melanderís in Alta part-time and ran a milk route for Johnny Adams as well. On October 2, 1982, Henry married Sonja Stange. Subsequently, they were blessed with two children: Berry and Robert. On April 1, 2011, he married Mitzi Banes. They were blessed with a daughter, Nancy, who passed away as an infant.

Henry worked on the Bauman Shows from 1971-1980. Next, he co-owned and operated Schnetter Amusements from 1981-1994. Also a truck driver for many years, he worked for Frank Welde in Anthon and Oto, Iowa, Tabkey in Moville, Iowa, and Flatbed Services in Sioux City, Iowa. In addition, he worked at Friesenís in Storm Lake and for the City of Denton, Texas. In his spare time, he enjoyed fishing and camping. Moreover, he loved wood working and scrapping metal. Most important, however, he treasured his family and will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved him.
