Place of Death

It is with great love and sadness that we announce the passing of our brother and uncle, Dennis Lyle Snyder.  He went to be with his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on June 13, 2024 at the age of 68.

Dennis was born on January 9, 1956 to Cleason and Beatrice Snyder in Kitchener, Ontario.  He was the second oldest of seven children.   He attended high school at John Diefenbaker Secondary School, and later went on to attend college and receive a computer diploma.  He worked for the provincial government for several years as a data base administrator.   In recent years, he enjoyed driving his Amish friends around the area and having fellowship with them as they travelled.  Throughout Dennis’ life, he lived in different parts of the county such as Ayton, Calgary, Toronto and eventually settling in Ripley where he resided until his death.
Dennis was a quiet, loving and sensitive man with a quick wit.  He loved taking care of his cat, and watching his favorite baseball team, the Toronto Blue Jays, play.  His memory for baseball player’s names, stats and trivia was truly impressive.
Though his life had ups and downs, Dennis relied upon Jesus for his joy and comfort.  He enjoyed attending church when he went and having fellowship there.

Dennis is survived by his sister, Sharon, his brothers Don, Doug(Eleanor), Gil(Lisa) and Glen(Gloria) and numerous nieces and nephews.  He is predeceased by his parents, Cleason and Beatrice Snyder, his sister, Gloria and sister-in-law, Vicky.
We will miss you, Dennis.

Romans 8: 35, 37-39
Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword?  No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.  For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
