David Thomas Snyder

September 14, 1936 ~ May 27, 2024

David Thomas Snyder of Vero Beach, FL passed away on May 27, 2024 after a short illness.  Born in 1936 in Steubenville, Ohio, he is preceded in death by his parents F. David Snyder and Mary A. (Cavanaugh) Snyder and by his sister Maryanne (Jack, deceased) Meek.


David is survived by his wife of nearly 64 years Alice (Potasnik) Snyder, daughters Mary Alice (Edward) Stopyra of Vero Beach and Julianne Snyder of Bucks County, Pennsylvania, brother Charles (Donna) Snyder and sister Marilyn (Gary, deceased) Ford both of Steubenville.


David graduated from Steubenville Catholic Central High School in 1954 and Franciscan University of Steubenville (formerly The College of Steubenville) in 1959 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting and later became a licensed Certified Public Accountant.  He served in the U.S. Army at Fort Knox and the U.S. Air Force Reserve, worked for a major public accounting firm and for two different metals manufacturing companies retiring from Freedom Forge (Burnham, Pennsylvania) as the Corporate Tax Manager.


David enjoyed serving his church and communities and, specifically, the St Vincent de Paul Society in State College, Pennsylvania and Vero Beach, Florida and as an usher in the churches he attended throughout his lifetime.  He made beautiful wood furniture and stained glass pieces and was a lifetime, steadfast, Pittsburgh Steelers fan.


In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the St. Vincent de Paul Society at 1745 14th Ave., Vero Beach, FL 32960 or to the VNA Hospice House at 901 37th St., Vero Beach, FL 32960.

Dave will be missed by so many, his wife and family at the top of the list but also his neighbors and friends. He was a classic gentleman, quiet ways. Always willing to help in any way he could. I knew him as a neighbor and a gym pal. His sense of humor was always present in the aerobic classes. Rest in Peace my friend.

  • The service from Millennium was outstanding. Rachel was sweet, personable and very comforting. It was important to me that my dad was kept locally where I knew where he would be. Very nice facility, state of the art and quality of my fathers remains were so refined compared to my mothers years ago. I highly recommend this place for an affordable choice for your loved one. Thank you for making an already stressful event easy. With high regards, the Esposito and Keith Family.

  • Millennium Cremation provided a fantastic service to our family at a difficult time. Our beloved mother passed away in Vero Beach and the rest of the family was in other parts of the country. Due to the Covid health crisis, none of us could get to Vero Beach in person. That's where Millennium took over. They helped us manage everything, coordinated with a cemetery in Maine, managed the obituaries, expedited all the paperwork, and even delivered an important document locally that saved us days. Funeral director Rachel was a godsend, and she made it clear what she was going to do, and what we needed to do. If you know what you want, Millennium is highly recommended, and the savings versus the full service mortuaries is significant.
