Jay R Snyder was born November 26, 1964 and was called home on April 5, 2019 at the age of 54.
Jay grew up in Scandia, Kansas, and attended Pike Valley and Belleville schools. Jay had three beautiful children at a young age who were his whole life. Later in his life he moved back to Belleville, Kansas, where he met the love of his life Marlene Snyder of 18 years.
Jay was a hard working man with a heart of gold who was always offering help to others. Hardly a day went by that he wasn't working on cars, riding his Harley or enjoying an ice-cold Busch Light. Jay lived each day to the fullest and enjoyed spending his time outdoors.
His family, including his dogs, were the most important part of his life. He wouldn't go to bed at night without talking to his kids to tell them he loved them. Jay enjoyed watching sunsets and loved watching the eagles every winter.
Anyone who knew Jay knew that to him, he had the "best" of everything. He had a sincere appreciation for all the blessings in his life. Jay never took any day for granted. He will be forever missed and forever in our hearts.
Jay is preceded in death by his father Jim Snyder, his mother Shirley Hanson Snyder, and a grandson D'Angelo J.
He is survived by his wife Marlene; his daughter Amy (Jeramie) Luzum of Lincoln, NE; sons Jamie (Kayla) Snyder of Cuba, KS and Brandon (Kayla Garst) Snyder of Fairbury NE; step sons Matthew (Becky) Marsh, Jason (Sloan) Marsh, Sam (Elizabeth) Marsh, and David Marsh; and siblings Jan (Larry) Boman of Scandia, KS,
Ann (Micky) White of SC, and Dan Anderson, Assaria, KS. Jay also has 10 grandchildren and 2 more on the way.
