Long time friend of the Ann Arbor Magic Club and owner of ABC Magic, David Schneider passed away of heart failure and cancer at his home in Macomb Township on May 15, 2023. He was born in Detroit, Michigan but lived most of his life in Macomb County. He was a graduate of Mt. Clemens High School. David was active in community and civic service. He served on the Downtown Development Authority of Mt. Clemens and was involved in numerous community events. A Boy Scout Leader for over 20 years, he often did charitable magic shows for organizations serving special needs children. His reward was seeing them laugh and smile.
David had a passion for magic from a very young age. His dream of a magic shop came true with the opening of Magic and More at Gibraltar Trade Center 25 years ago. He went on to establish ABC Entertainment which provides fun for children and families and operated magic stores throughout Macomb County. With his white beard and jovial manner he was a sought after Santa Claus each holiday season. Off season, children were amazed to see Santa in person, in everyday situations.
David was a good and honorable man who deeply loved his family and his friends. He always had a story or a joke to share. Many members of the club were friends with Dave. He will be missed.
