Feb. 10, 1948 – July 9, 2015

John Snyder, 67, of Prescott, Arizona, died unexpectedly at his residence on July 9, 2015. He was born Feb. 10, 1948 in Morenci, Michigan to Kenneth Snyder and Frances (Slaton) Snyder.

He was preceded in death by his parents and sister, Shirley (Snyder) Wolfcale.

Members of his family include Deb (Butler) Snyder; children Drew and Meg (Lowry) Snyder and Caitlin Snyder; sister Sally (Snyder) Lerette; and many nieces, nephews, cousins, and countless friends.

John was the longtime Executive Editor of Farmers' Advance. He was highly thought of and will be sorely missed by the staff he worked with throughout the years.

John's fondness for the blues, Michigan summers and good company will not be forgotten.
