I lost a true friend this week and the world lost a special and kindhearted person. We need more like Joe in this world. He will be deeply missed.

To Jeff and Jerrilyn, I am very sorry to hear of your brother Joey's passing. I remember our happy times at Grandma and Grandpap Snyder's house during the holidays. We will keep you our prayers. Your cousin Jim McNabb and family.

As my godfather he was one of the most beautiful man I've ever met in my life as a person still one of the most beautiful man I've ever met.Joe's generous nature made him truly unique in this world as my teacher set examples of being a man ,person and a father. The world lost one of the true lights of this world in Mr. Snyder and Heaven became enriched.
