Larry James Snyder, 64, of Burnt Cabins, PA, died Sunday, October 13, 2013 at Pinnacle Health, Harrisburg, PA, with his wife at his side. He had been ill for a short time and his death was unexpected.

Born February 17, 1949 at Mt. Union, PA, he was a son of the late Leonard & Lorma (Rinker) Snyder. He was married to the former Sandra Mae Glunt on December 17, 1970 at the former Otterbein United Methodist Church, Orbisonia, PA. Mrs. Snyder survives at their home.

One brother, Leonard Jay and his wife Pat also survive of Gardners, PA, along with several aunts, uncles and cousins. Mr. Snyder graduated from the Southern Huntingdon Co. High School.

After his marriage, he was employed at the former Genesco, Inc., Mt. Union, PA until 1974. He then worked at JLG Industries, McConnellsburg, PA until 1986, at which time he and his family moved to South Carolina. He returned to Shade Gap in 1998 and two years later moved to Burnt Cabins where he worked for various lumber companies until his retirement in 2011.

He enjoyed spending a great deal of his time hunting and fishing. He also enjoyed sports, especially baseball and football, his two favorite teams being the Pittsburgh Pirates and Pittsburgh Steelers.
