In Memory of Hans Schneider, AIA— NEWS

Hans Schneider

It is with great sadness that we mourn the passing of Hans Schneider on March 19th.

Hans’ 50+ year history with Nacht & Lewis began in August of 1962, when he was hired on as a Draughtsman and Project Coordinator. During his time with the firm, he contributed his technical skill and knowledge to all of the firm’s markets, but ultimately became the firm’s criminal justice facilities specialist. His most notable and significant contributions include the Sacramento County Main Jail, Rio Cosumnes Correctional Center, El Dorado County Jail and Lake County Main Jail. He was highly regarded and respected by his clients and colleagues.

Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife Mary and his family. Hans was truly one of a kind.
