4 Tributes to Charles C. Snyder

  1. Rusty Wenger says:

    Chuck was my Best Man and a life long friend. We roomed together at Akron University and joined the TKE fraternity together. Sleeping on the top bunk above Chuck was a real treat for him because I was never one to ” hold my liquor” . More than once he had to wake up to his shoes filled with the previous nights libations. Chuck was always the one who had a car and was willing to drive us both back home to Chesterland on weekends. Many times I would have to shout out and roust him from a long blink. And those shaved balogna sandwiches his mother would make for us we’re out of this world. Knowing Chuck for the 50+ years has been my true blessing. I will miss his friendship terribly.

  2. Judy Snyder says:

    I love you very much and I am going to miss you. You were a wonderful husband and I am sorry I hen pecked you so often. You were a wonderful dad and you loved being a dad. Our boys turned out great, successful and kind. You loved your family who you did not see that often. Your friends were so very important to you also. All of this made you who you were, so wonderful. Thank you for being a part of are lives. Love to you Babe. ❤ Judy

  3. Christine Wheeler says:

    Chuck was a great guy. We were involved with the Cub Scouts when all of our boys were young. We worked at the stadiums together to earn funds for the Cubs. It was hectic, but lots of fun in the Dawg Pound! Judy, I am can feel for you. I lost Doug in 2004, and its a head hit to take. Memories will him close to you always. Chuck will be missed.

  4. David Marshall says:

    My older brother Craig, was good friends with Chuck since the 5th grade. I grew up with them all around( that group of class of 68 WGHS gents… Chuck, Rusty, Butch, Fred, Roger and Craig)…. And always hoped I’d have a group of HS friends just like them. High quality and fun loving folks, who knew how to have a real good time, yet survive the experience. They have all been friends for life,…. And losing Chuck now makes those past memories of “these guys” and their fun shenanigans all the more precious . God be with you Judy,… we’ll keep Chuck in our hearts.
