Obituary for Robert L. Snyder

Robert “Bob” L. Snyder, 71, our beloved husband, father, brother, and friend, left us to be with The Lord on Saturday, February 24, 2018 in Indianapolis, Indiana. Bob spent his grade school years at Zion Lutheran and then attended New Palestine High School. After graduation Bob was a staff sergeant for four years in the Air Force and proudly served his country overseas during the Vietnam War. He then went on to Spartan Aeronautical School in Tulsa, Oklahoma where he received an Aircraft and Power Plant Degree and a second class FCC license. After returning to Indiana he began working at Sky Harbor Airport and then went on to establish his own furniture refinishing business. In 1981 he accepted a position at Rolls Royce as a test operator in research and development and retired in 2013.

Bob and his wife, Nancy, developed a passion for traveling, and it became an important part of their lives. They have been to all 50 states, several countries, and six continents.

Since high school Bob has had a love for hot rods and antique cars and after retiring he enjoyed restoring his 1929 Ford Model A truck. He was capable of building or fixing just about anything but would always humbly say “Oh, anyone could do that”. That just exemplifies one of the many amazing qualities that everyone loved about him. Not only was he a humble man, but he truly reflected the fruits of the Spirit and left this earth without an enemy.

He is survived by his beloved wife of almost 50 years, Nancy; daughters, Trinity and Brittany; daughter-in-law, Keri; sister, Rosemary; four beautiful grandchildren, Lily, Luke, Graham, Lane; and many nieces and nephews. Bob was preceded in death by his son, Christian; his parents, Edward and Julia; brothers, James and Richard.

Visitation will take place at St. John Evangelical Lutheran Church, where Bob is a member, 6630 Southeastern Ave, Indianapolis, IN 46203 on Friday, March 2, 2018 from 4:00pm until 8:00pm. Funeral services will be held on Saturday, March 3 at 10:00am at Zion Lutheran Church, 6513 West 300 South, New Palestine, IN 46163, with visitation from 9:00am until the time of service. Burial will immediately follow at Zion Lutheran Cemetery. Arrangements are entrusted to G.H. Herrmann Funeral Home, 5141 Madison Avenue, Indianapolis, IN. Online condolences may be shared with the family at www.ghhermann.com.
