Martin Earl Snyder, Jr., 49, of Punxsutawney, passed away at home on Wednesday, July 22, 2020.
He was born in DuBois on November 29, 1970 a son of Judith E. (McCracken) Buzard and the late Martin Earl Snyder, Sr. He is survived by his mother and stepfather, Virgil Buzard of Punxsutawney.
Marty was a 1989 graduate of Punxsutawney Area High School.
He served in the United States Army from 1989-1993. He was an Iraq War veteran.
On September 4, 2000, he married the former Stephanie Ann Getch. They enjoyed nineteen years of marriage and raised two beautiful children, Tanner Snyder of Indiana and Bailey Snyder, residing at home.
He owned and operated M. Snyder Trucking of Punxsutawney. He was self-employed and work was a priority for him. He worked away from home for weeks at a time for business and missed his family. He was very dedicated to doing his best to provide a good life for his family. He loved them and wanted to be sure they were taken care of.
Everything that he did was done to perfection, from maintaining his truck, his business, to his home and lawn. He was excellent at shooting pool and could rarely be beat. He mastered the game that he learned well from his stepdad Virgil and enjoyed playing in tournaments with him at the Eagles where he was also a member. He was an inspiration to his younger brother, Chris, who always looked up to him as an example through out their lives. He was dearly loved by all of his family and will be missed beyond measure.
In addition to his wife Stephanie, his mother Judy and stepfather Virgil Buzard, he is survived by two children, Tanner and Bailey Snyder, one brother, Christopher Michael Snyder and wife Jennifer of Altoona, and his paternal grandmother, Mary Elizabeth Snyder of DuBois.
