I just found out tonight about John's passing. I last saw John in Eastham on the Cape several years ago. He was the same then as he always was laughing and fill of fun. Iam sure he will be missed by everyone he has ever known.

A lifetime of memories....we watched John grow up to become a loving and kind son, brother, husband, father, uncle, grandfather....he was very special. John's greatest gifts to the family are his children.
Brother David, our children and I are grateful for his too short but powerful presence in our lives. Sleep well, Johnny. Diane

Heather & Mandy, in all the years since Skycrest not very many days would go by when something funny your dad said or did or the goofy, silly ways he behaved didn't make me think of him and smile. He always had a tremendous impact on everyone around him, on every single person that came in contact with him. His spirit wil be alive always and in so many of us who knew and loved him. I'm so sorry for your loss.

I spent two weeks of my childhood one summer with Uncle John, Mandy, and Heather that will forever be engrained in my memory as one of the best times of my life. I opened more baseball cards than a 12 year old should be allowed to. I spent hours in the card room and thought it was heaven on earth. I also use the word gooby and always have since that summer. I love that laugh and hope i never grow up just like uncle John.

Although I have never met your family, I am so saddened by your loss. My sister, Denise Salmu, has shared her emotions with me and I, too, feel for you all. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.

John was always welcoming and fun.
One of my favorite memories is of him interacting with kids at the club. He was always playful. They loved him and he called them "goobers". We use that word as term of endearment to this day.

John...just an amazing man! Warm memories of his smile, A-1 sauce, nouggies, the 2 Audis, McHugh Forum and so much more. That wonderful laugh. He made all around him feel very special. He will be missed. May he have a safe journey home. My sincere sympathy to the Snyder families. Heather and Mandy may your loving memories bring you comfort. Love Gail
