John Peter Snyder

March 23, 1949November 12, 2019

John Peter Snyder, 70 years old, of Colorado Springs, passed away on November 12, 2019 at Penrose Hospital with his family by his side.

John was born on March 23, 1949 in Hazleton, Pennsylvania to the late Peter and Mary Snyder (Voloshin). In 1967, John graduated from West Hazleton High School. He then went on to Penn State University where he was awarded his Bachelor’s degree in Accounting in 1974.

John was married to Terrie Snyder (Hylton) on April 4, 2016. They had been together since April 4, 1991, where they had met at a Square Dancing event.

John worked as an auditor for many years which is what led him to Colorado. He then worked for DFAS (Department Finance Accounting Systems) in Denver for 15 years. In 2005 he retired at age 55 due to health reasons.

John was a very devoted husband and loving father. And he had his own unique way of showing it. His motto was, “if I did not poke fun at you then that meant he didn’t like you.” John was best known for his sense humor, which sometimes got him in trouble. One of John’s passions was taking long road trips with his loving wife to National Parks. They had the chance to visit 42, with a goal of going to all of them. He also enjoyed having family dinners with his kids and grandkids that always made him laugh. He will be greatly missed.

He was preceded in death by his mother and father. John Snyder is survived by his children, Mary Snyder, Janice Nautiyal, Jacqueline Snyder and John Snyder II. Also, his six grandchildren Kristian Smith, Kameron Smith, Jyoti Nautiyal, Romir Nautiyal, Teaghan Ellis and Luna Ellis. Also, two brother’s Joseph Snyder and Jimmy Snyder.

John will be laid to rest on November 21, 2019 at 1pm at Abby of the Angles at Memorial Gardens 3825 Airport Rd, Colorado Springs CO 80910.
