Michael “Mike” Allen Schnitker, 58, New York, NY, formerly of Wichita, KS,  passed away peacefully into the arms of Jesus on Tuesday, May 5, 2020, at the age of 58 years old. No more pain and suffering and he’s singing with the angels!

He continued his studies and received his Bachelor’s Degree in Business at Bethany College in Lindsborg and also became a CPA. Mike was a Commodities Trader for Koch Industries in Wichita.

With his work ethic and skill set it later took him to trade for a bank in New York City. After Mike became disabled, he continued to enjoy being a Day Trader. His hobbies included music, playing the piano and organ, and he loved movies.

His loving family includes his parents, Dick and Betty Schnitker of Wichita; brother, Terry Schnitker of Augusta, Kansas; two nieces, Makenzi and Mariah Schnitker also of Augusta.
