Our thoughts and prayers to the family on the passing of Bob. Friends, coincidently our dad, Regis (Jim) passed on this day 1/6 four years ago. May they rest in the peace and everlasting life of our merciful and loving Father God.

Robert P. Snyder Jr.
My father was a good man in many ways, even though he could be the world's biggest grouch at times , family always came first. He was very unselfish and even though he seldom set foot in a church he believed is God! When my brothers and me were young he would read and underline psalms from the Bible to us. He is now with my brother Dave with the Lord!
