Obituary of George R. Snyder
WESTERLO - George R. “Robbie” Snyder, passed away at home on
He was an avid snowmobiler, so much so that he and his brother built a camp on Tug Hill where he spent every spare minute, regardless of season. He was a very active member of the Turin Ridge Riders Snowmobile Club, devoting many hours to trail marking and maintenance, and the construction of their new groomer barn. He also enjoyed logging and sawing lumber on his portable sawmill, and cutting firewood and maintaining the farmland he and his brother owned in Westerlo.
He is survived by his beloved wife of 49 years, Gail Darlene (Lounsbury) whom he met when she was out celebrating her 18th Birthday. They were inseparable from that moment on, and made a wonderful couple. Together they shared many travel adventures, love of Tug Hill, Labrador Retrievers, and NASCAR racing. They attended hundreds of NASCAR races, cheering their favorites, Dale Earnhardt Sr. and Jr. He is also survived by his brother Peter Snyder of Westerlo, who shared much of his life and passions, and idolized him as his Big Brother. Also surviving are his nephew Mark Lounsbury Jr. of Westerlo and his wife Alicia, and their children, Zoey and Owen; his niece, Jennifer O’Leary and her husband Kevin of Cranston, RI, and their children Conor and Declan; Uncle Robert Snyder and Aunt Catherine Latham of Westerlo; numerous cousins, in-laws, friends (and a few outlaws).
Visitation will be held Monday July 11th from 10am to 12pm at the A.J. Cunningham Funeral Home, 4898 State Route 81, Greenville, followed by a brief service at 12pm. Interment immediately following at the Westerlo Rural Cemetery.
