Jeffrey Paul Snyder
We are sad to announce the passing of our beloved Jeffrey Paul Snyder. He lost his long and courageous battle with cancer on Aug 6th, 2022 at his home in Idaho Falls with his sister Konnie and her partner Lewis by his side.
Jeff was born to Paul and Charlene Snyder in Southwick, Idaho on April 30, 1956. He spent most of his life in Idaho as well as Utah, Wisconsin, and Washington. He loved to travel and meet people, his quick wit was what drew so many to him.
He attended schools in Mackay, Idaho, Arco Idaho, and Seattle, Washington. Jeff worked many different jobs but spent more time in construction and farming. He retired in 2019 when the battle with cancer began.
Our beautiful, loving, caring, brother, father, grandpa, and uncle will be missed by many who loved him. He had many passions in life, motorcycles being his favorite pastime. He loved to get out and feel the wind in his hair. His beloved dog Aggie was always with him even on the bike. He loved being with his family and friends, camping, fishing, hunting, riding with many, and helping people.
He married a few and loved many. He found the love of his life, Sheryl Rae, in Arco Idaho. They were married on May 5, 1995, in an aspen grove near Blizzard Mountain under a full moon. They had many wonderful years together. They lived in Arco until Sheryl Rae's passing in 2002. He had 4 children Jeremey, Jeffery, Molly, and Justin.
