May 15, 1928-March 3, 2019
Everett D. Snyder, 90, of Bryan went to be with our Heavenly Father on Sunday, March 3, 2019. He was born on May 15, 1928 as the only child of Clifford and Daisy Snyder in Monmouth, IL. At the age of 17 Everett met the love of his life, Ruth Ingraham, who was 14 years old. Everett and Ruth were ever present in the lives of their children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren and spent many weekends creating cherished family memories together. He was a Manager for F.W. Woolworth Company for 40 years and taught his family to strive for excellence through a strong work ethic and balancing life with a healthy diet, exercising, and saving. Everett enjoyed playing the organ and writing words of wisdom/encouragement notebooks that he created for many. Everett amassed an impressive Nutcracker collection, he was a prayer warrior for family and friends, kept an impressive lawn, and was full of energy and love. He had a knack for finding hidden treasures and repurposed or used all of his findings. Everett was known to spend his time walking outdoors, working in the yard, and woodworking special gifts for his family. He always had a project and each handcrafted work of art was meant to show his family members how special they truly are to him. Everett leaves behind a legacy of love and respect.
He was preceded in death by his uncle, Larry Groff and his wife, Nora; and his brother-in-law and wife, Gerald and Margaret Ingraham.
Everett is survived by his adoring wife, Ruth G. Snyder; sons, Steve (Jonita) Snyder of Houston, and Rick (Deborah) Snyder of Bryan; daughters, Linda (Bill) Campbell of Bourbonnais, IL, and Julia (Andy) Hildebrand of Pittsburgh, PA; grandchildren, Jill (Matt) Schultz, Neil (Elizabeth) Snyder, Sarah (Gabriel) Snyder-Castaneda, Laura Snyder, Samantha (William) Pierce, Michael Stalnos, Doug (Natalie Salazar) Stalnos, Nick Stalnos (Kirsten), Hannah Campbell, Brandon Campbell, Carly Hildebrand, and Rachel Hildebrand; great-grandchildren, Everett and Emily Schultz, Brayden and Nathan Snyder, Gabriella Castaneda, Cecilia Pierce, Ixchel Stalnos, and Abigail Stalnos; sister-in-law, Nancy (Richard) Blevins; nieces and nephews, Gerry Lee (Patty) Blevins, Tammy (Tommy) Thompson, Curtis (Kathy) Blevins, Kevin (Jessie) Blevins, and Vernon Ingraham; great-nieces, Kathy Custer, Janet Rickets, Karen Herting, and Carol Danielson; and extended family members and friends.

Sorry for your loss. Never had the opportunity to meet Everett but my mom Nancy Campbell, my brother Bill and Linda Campbell always talked about how he was a loving and kind person.
My sincerest condolences.
Even though I never met you! I am grateful for all you did for my Mom Evelyn across the street. Your heart of gold was amazing. We need more like you in this world. God bless your family!

Heartfelt sympathy to Ruth and Families. What lovely and happy memories for all to cherish.
Will miss you Dad….
Seems like yesterday I remember sitting on a lake Michigan beach with you, being nervous about asking permission to marry your beautiful daughter Linda. You were so gracious and encouraging. So many good memories since then. Praying God’s comfort for all of us,especially mom.
