Justin Daniel Snyder, born February 6, 1988, went into eternal life with his savior Jesus Christ on December 5, 2012, at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, Washington.
Justin remained optimistic, kind and thankful to those who cared for him as he sustained a serious leg wound, which led to more serious complications.
Justin had a very contagious smile and authentic presence of goodness. During his stay at Jefferson Healthcare in Port Townsend, Justin spoke often of the compassion and excellent care he received from staff and especially Dr. Tracy Harris, about whom Justin stated, "Dr. Harris treated me with loving kindness and was sincere about helping me."
Justin is greatly missed and forever remembered by his friends and family.
He is survived by his parents, Daniel and Melissa Snyder; aunt Holly Riley; grandfather Romain Riley; and cousins Alex and Trevor Lewerenz, Noah, Beau and Daniel Riley, Jeana Snyder and Ayla Heinke, all family members of Chico, California.
Justin is also survived by his 2-year-old son, John Daniel Snyder-McElroy, who was the love of his life; and John's mother, Erica McElroy of Port Hadlock.
Justin's services are being held in Durham, California, at 7 p.m. Monday, December 17, 2012, at First Baptist Church.
