Uncle Bill was a soft-spoken, kind & intelligent man. Family -oriented. Everyone loved him & was comfortable being around him. He left behind a wonderful family. We will miss him , but will have fond memories. It comforts me to know he is at peace & no longer suffering.

It is with great sadness I read of the passing of Mr. William (Bill) Snyder Sr. Mr. Snyder is and always be the consummate gentleman, both through the soft words he spoke to his extreme kind and gentle nature with people. Many years have passed since I last saw or had a chance to speak with him. What has remained, in my memory, is how helpful the entire family was in my early teaching career and the graduate course work I was taking in college. I extend to the family my deepest sympathies and condolences. I know how hard it is to lose a family member. There is not a day that will pass when you will not think of Bill...for the most wonderful people of this world never truly leave us...they live in our hearts forever. Ned Beck
