Randall Owen Snyder


Randall "Randy" Owen Snyder, 61, of Harrisville, passed away June 27, 2019, at his home surrounded by his family after a nine-month batter with leukemia.
He was born Jan. 30, 1958, in Grove City to the late Victor R. Snyder Jr. and Mary Louise Owen Snyder.
Randy graduated from Slippery Rock High School and worked at General Electric, Grove City, retiring in June 2018 after 30-plus years. He formerly worked at AGR in Butler.
Randy was a simple man with simple tastes. He was an avid reader. He liked tinkering on his tractor, his automobiles and around his house. He coached his son's Marion Township Little League baseball team, the West Sunbury Pony League team and Moniteau Youth Football. He also cheered on his son at the Moniteau High School football games and cheered for his daughter during her dancing and cheerleading years.
He enjoyed watching the Steelers, but his love was with the Pirates. He and his daughter enjoyed a Dad-Daughter Game at PNC Park at least once a year. He like small-stream trout fishing, fly fishing, hunting deer, working in his garden and removing pesky beavers from his pond.
Randy is survived by his wife, Carole Jean (Martin) Snyder of Harrisville; his daughter, Morgan Jean Snyder (Eric Rodriguez) of Pittsburgh; his son, Dylan (Michele) Snyder of Southaven, Miss.; and the light of his life, his granddaughter Olivia "Liv" Jean Snyder.
Also surviving are his sisters, Sherry (Herb) Carlson of Slippery Rock, Pamela (Curt) Watson of Boyers and Karen (Jim) Anderson of Slippery Rock; his brothers, Gary (Sandy) Snyder and Ronald Snyder, both of Harrisville. He is also survived by his aunts and uncles and many nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews.
He preceded in death by his parents; his mother- and father-in-law, Bob and Arlene Martin; his sister-in-law, Janice; his brother, Jeffrey Snyder; and niece, Ashley Anderson.
