Guy J. Snyder


Guy J. Snyder, 86, of Snyder Road, Northumberland, passed away on Sunday, Aug. 25, 2019.
He was born Sept. 3, 1932, a son of the late Walter A. and Erna (Staugbach) Snyder. On Feb. 14, 1953, he married the former Marion E. Barnhart who preceded him in death on Nov. 1, 2011.

Guy graduated in 1950 from Northumberland High School and was a proud Pineknotter.

He will always be remembered as a loving and devoted father, grandfather and great-grandfather, never missing a sporting event or milestone in their lives.
As an avid outdoorsman, Guy was proud to tell everyone that he shot 54 buck in his life and was looking forward to going for number 55. Guy was involved in various sports, playing on area softball teams until the age of 60. He enjoyed planting huge family gardens for everyone to enjoy.
