George M. Snyder

A carpenter/property management and resident of Silverthorne died unexpectedly on Feb. 20, 2015, at the age of 54.

Born in Levittown, Pennsylvania, George grew up in Clinton, New Jersey. He is survived by his wife, Christine Wertley-Snyder; seven siblings Mary Katherine Snyder McKeith, Joanne Snyder Schoeberl, Thomas, Richard, Judith, David, and John Snyder; three nieces, five nephews and two grand nieces; and is predeceased by his parents Harry and Ann Snyder formerly of Clinton, New Jersey.

George was an active member of the Boy Scouts of America and a 1978 graduate of NH Regional HS. A kindred spirit to the U.S. National Parks Service, right out of West Virginia University, George worked on Hatteras Island in North Carolina for several years before transferring to Olympic National Park in Washington. In 1992, George’s adventurous soul guided him to Colorado where he made a home for himself and eventually his wife Chris of 10 years.

An avid skier George held a sense of wonder and appreciation for hiking and fishing in the Rockies as well as the New Jersey countryside. He was known to travel cross country frequently to relish in the serenity of the North Carolina coast line. George, a devoted husband, brother, uncle and best friend, will always be remembered for loving life and living it to the fullest. His pleasant spirit and dedication to those he loved will be his legacy for years to come. George will be deeply missed by his family, friends and all who knew him.
