Claude “Bob” Snyder peacefully passed away surrounded by loved ones on June 2, 2023 at the age of 86. Bob is survived by his beloved wife of 63 years Elene, daughter Laurie (Kevin) Hanke, grandchildren Dylan (Morgan) Snyder and Jill (Ryan) Tuggle, great grandchildren Reagan and Judd Tuggle, and nephews David and Greg Snyder.
He is preceded in death by his parents, Margaret “Peg” Clemensen and Ellis Snyder, his brother David Snyder, and his son Craig (Jill Stahl) Snyder.
Bob was born in York Pennsylvania, moving at a young age to California. He attended undergraduate and graduate school in California, receiving an MBA from the University of Southern California. Playing golf and puttering in his workshop were Bob’s favorite past----times. He was fortunate to travel the U.S., Ireland, and Scotland with family and friends to play at his most coveted courses. Some of Bob’s treasured memories were of his Father’s Day outings to a Legends course for 18 holes with his son, grandson, and father-in-law. Bob shared his passion for business with his dear daughter, mentoring her to follow in his professional footsteps.
Bob will be greatly missed by his family and friends.
