Tyler John "TJ" Snyders was born November 20, 1990, in Sioux Falls to Rick and Lori (Everhart) Snyders. Tyler attended Washington High School, graduating in 2009. He enlisted in the SD Air National Guard while a Senior in high school and was a member of the 114th Fighter wing, where he was a Crew Chief on an F-16 fighter. Tyler was so proud to be a Veteran and serving his Country meant the world to him. He was just named the Crew Chief of the Quarter and was admired and respected by all his military brothers and sisters. After basic training and tech school, he enrolled at Colorado Tech, graduating with a degree in Business Administration. He was currently employed at Dakota Auto Parts.
Tyler loved pheasant and deer hunting and was in a trap shooting league at Izaak Walton league. He also loved racing his Malibu at Thunder Valley Dragways and attending sprint car races at Huset's. He was a gearhead and an excellent mechanic and was the go-to guy and quick to help out when any of his friends had car troubles.
Tyler had a heart of gold, and our hearts are broken. He is dearly loved and will be missed forever by his parents, Rick and Lori; brother, Ryan; grandmas, Pat Snyders, Sioux Falls, and Doris Everhart, Canton, SD; and many aunts, uncles, cousins, friends, and co-workers. He was preceded in death by his grandpas, Robert Snyders and Lee Everhart; and an uncle, Greg Snyders.
Rest in Peace, We Love you, TJ, and Blessed be his Memory.
