Helen (Boolman) Snyder.
William (Bill) married on April 10, 1970, and loved his wife Shari up to her last day on earth and beyond. Bill retired from Robinson and Myers. As a young man he did a stent in the Army. He enjoyed many things in life, his Harley Davidson motorcycle, his red convertible Cadillac. He enjoyed spending time fishing and mushroom hunting as well as shooting pool with his many friends. He supported Open Bible church through donation of supplies to the Sunday School for many years. He was a lover of Blue Grass, with a soft spot in his heart for Kitty Wells and Patsy Cline, country singers. Bill also loved the Open Bible family.

nieces, nephews, great and great-great-nieces and nephews as well as friends near and far. Preceeded in death by his wife of 51 years, Shari Snyder; his mother and father, brothers-in-law: Robert (Phyllis) Winkle, Edward (Joyce) Anderkin, Don Arnett, e beloved young nephew and Mona Garland.
