January 16, 1943

September 30, 2013

Sadly, our eldest brother Ron passed away September 30th in St. Louis, MO. Born to Merle and Glenda Snider January 16, 1943, Ron went to local schools, graduating in 1980 with degrees in history and political science. Ron proudly served in the Navy during the Vietnam War, taking part in the first Marine landings at Danang, South Vietnam in 1964; discharged in 1969. President of Sparks Jaycees, the Haunted House was one of his favorite projects. Moving to St. Louis in the 80's, Ron worked the next 30 years as a computer programmer for the Department of Defense. Our family saw little of him during the ensuing years. Despite the physical distance between us, he was forever in our hearts and minds. Ron was the most compassionate, generous person, giving to over 30 charities a year. He is much loved and will be missed by many. Surviving siblings are Lyle, Glen and Merlene Cardnuto (Michael) as well as nieces Melissa and Michele; nephew Matthew (Michelle) and grand-nephew Caiden. A graveside memorial service will be held at the Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Fernley, NV Saturday, November 16th at 1:00 pm with a reception to follow at the Snider Residence. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to your local SPCA. Contact for more details.
