As the former Assistant to the City Manager with the City of Santa Ana, CA, I had the pleasure of working closely with Steve Snyder for over 15 years. Steve was one of the kindest and most professional Santa Ana/OCFA Fire Captains I ever worked alongside. Steve operated the City of Santa Ana Emergency Operations Center and as a result worked closely with the City Manager's Office to ensure the safety and well being of the entire community. Steve was genuinely a "Nice Guy".

May God bless him and his family!

Last Thursday evening Steve and a handful of other members of our train club were having dinner. Another member, John Parker is also a retired firefighter. He and Steve were sharing stories, talking about their experiences and keeping us all in stitches most of the night. Steve also spent a good deal of time talking about his family and how proud he was of them. He told us about his wife becoming a Paramedic. He talked about how they made the move to Texas to be closer to the kids. I always kidded Steve about his Jeep and how we men simply buy bigger & more expensive toys as we grow up, but we never stop playing with toys!

We talked about military service and being a firefighter. We talked about 9/11 and the brave men & women of FDNY. Steve told us about how when he went to NYC the FDNY wanted their own to work the piles so Steve & other volunteers from around the country worked their shifts so they could work the rubble. Steve was always smiling, always helping/serving and always a pleasure to be around and will truly be missed by many.
