Kenneth H. Snyder,
Age 77 of Minneapolis, passed away March 2, 2019 after a brave battle with cancer. He was born to Raymond and Louise Snyder in Melrose, MN. Ken grew up in Minneapolis and attended Central High School, where he met his sweetheart, Betsey. He retired from Carpenter Steel after 30 years of service as a truck driver, as well as AAA after 9 years as a dispatcher. Ken had many interests, including volunteering at the Como-Harriet Streetcar line, helping with the restoration of steam engine NP328, and he was one of the charter members of the Gopher State Railway Museum. Some of his favorite memories were the August days spent at the Scott-Carver Threshing show and with his family and his 1941 Farmall H tractor.
Ken is survived by loving wife and best friend of 59 years, Betsey; children: David (Linda), Stephen (Abby Ekstrand), Wayne (Jacque) and Lori (Joe O’Brien); grandchildren: Joseph (Ashley), Cory, Rachel , Hailey, Mitchell and Bradley; great-grandchildren, Jayce and Lily; brother and sister in law, Thomas and Diane, many nephews, nieces, cousins, family and friends. Preceded in death by brother and sister in law, Lloyd and Janice Snyder.
