June 15, 1934 - January 12, 2019
Carlos D. Snyder, 84, of Muncy, died Saturday, January 12, 2019, at his home. Born June 15, 1934 in Hughesville, he was the only son of Willis Lee and Ocie Marguerite (Reese) Snyder. Carlos was a graduate of Hughesville High School, Class of 1952. After graduation he was employed as a technician at North Eastern Breeders Association (NEBA). Later he was employed as a Livestock Nutritional Supplements Salesman for Young’s, Inc., out of Roaring Springs, PA, and later retired from Cargill in the same capacity. He actively served his community in several roles including positions of increasing responsibility on the East Lycoming District School Board, the Farm Bureau, the Lycoming County Fair Association and the 4-H Club Youth Programs. Additionally, he served part time for several years as a Deputy Game Warden for the PA Game Commission. The dimension of his working life which he enjoyed the most was that of a farmer. He continued to work the land on his parents’ farm in Penn Township until past the age of 80. Carlos enjoyed hunting, square dancing, country music and spending time with his many friends including those in the Amish community. He was able to visit much of North America and in particular enjoyed traveling in the company of his longtime companion, Ada May, with whom he often said he spent “the happiest years” of his life. He held a special place in his heart for her two daughters, Cindy May Snyder, and Barbara May Gordner. Surviving are his son Greg (Denise) of Unionville, VA; two daughters, Faith Snyder of Suffield, CT and Dawn (Scott) Driver of Centre Hall, PA; four grandchildren; several-great grandchildren; and his three nephews and their families who were very close and special to him, Roger Martin, Dean Martin, and Dale Martin, all of Hughesville. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his companion, Ada May; a sister, Audrey Martin; a brother-in-law, Robert Martin; a nephew, Ronald L. Martin; and an infant granddaughter, Megan Brooke Snyder. A memorial service will be held 10 a.m. Saturday, January 19, at McCarty-Thomas Funeral Home, 557 E. Water St., Hughesville, with Chaplain Thomas M. Brokaw officiating. Burial will follow in Pleasant Hill Cemetery, Hughesville. Friends may call from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, January 18, at the funeral home. In lieu of flowers memorial contributions may be made in Carlos’ name to Mt.
