Larry Snyder Obituary
NELSONVILLE - Larry Snyder, born Sept. 23, 1949 in Nelsonville, passed away peacefully surrounded by family and friends on Feb. 23, 2018 in Las Vegas, Nevada at age 68.
Larry was preceded in death by his parents, Eugene and Iva Jeanne.
He is survived by his wife of 42 years, Dixie Anne (Sell) Snyder; son, Joshua; daughter, Brittany; grand-daughters, Sydnee and Elise; sister, Cheryl Clark; brother, Kevin; aunt, Geraldine Irwin; cousin, Paul Taylor; and cousins and nephews of the Snyder, Taylor and Irwin families.
A memorial service to celebrate Larry's life will be held at 11 a.m. Sept. 23, at the home of Mrs. Bernita Crawford, 1121 State Route 278 NE, Nelsonville. Friends and family are invited to attend the celebration.
Those who were close to Larry will remember that he always had a driving curiosity and inquisitive mind. Larry was not content to watch the world from the comfort of his living room on the television, but rather wanted to experience all of the adventures life had to offer from first-hand experience.
After graduating from Nelsonville High School in 1967, Larry enlisted in the Air Force, joined the Peace Corps, was a welding instructor in Bahrain, and completed several contracts in Saudi Arabia and Kuwait. Larry became proficient in the Arabic language and customs of the people of the Middle East during his time there. After returning to the U.S. Larry worked as an iron worker and general contractor.
The family requests donations in Larry's memory be made to the Nelsonville High School Scholarship Fund, C/O Nelsonville Alumni Association, P.O. Box 472, Nelsonville, Ohio 45764
