It was an honor and a privilege to have Coach Snyder as a friend, teacher, & coach. He was a special person in my life and a lot of his "GARISMS" I have tried to live by and pass on today. We stayed in contact over the years and I consider him a mentor. In March of 2018, myself and some of his former players at Shorecrest gathered to honor him. Players from 1968-1976 were in attendance. It was three hours of a lot of laughs, and many fond memories were shared by men who played for a man who at the time, ran one of the top high school baseball programs in the state at Shorecrest. It was a day I'll never forget and it meant so much to Coach Snyder. Coach, is in a better place now with Tonette. I'm going to miss our occasional talks and lunches. They don't make 'em like him anymore. See ya go coach, see ya go.

Thanks Coach! Being part of a State champ team is a favorite memory of High School. You made such an impact on so many.
Rest In Peace

Gary and I taught at Shorecrest High school for many years. When I taught Industrial Arts metal shop he convinced me of the need for batting cages for his baseball team.
My students constructed these as well as other pieces of equipment he had no budget for, all for 'his boys' on the team during his early coaching years. His beautiful wife always presented us with a cake she baked especially for us as a thank you. When I became a school counselor and needed to chat with Gary about a student related issue he was always there to help. It was like having a counselor in the PE department. Having Gary, Gil Inaba and Andy Slatt all three in that department was the best team Of PE teachers Shorecrest had during those years.
Gary and I attended Seattle University together in their MA in School Administration program.
When he was in your class as a student, believe me HE SET THE BAR for academic achievement.
I checked to see if he was in my class at opening day and breathed a sigh of relief if he wasn't. Thinking, now I have a chance to get an 'A'.
Gary, a great coach, teacher and most importantly, an outstanding person.
Thanks for the privilege of knowing you.

Played against Gary at the All-State game in Rainier Park in '57 and with him for 4 years at the U of W. He was a great teammate, a powerful competitor and a gracious and kind person. Very fond memories.
