Paul Loren Snyder left this life to join his one true love, Mary, in heaven on January 19, 2022, at the age of 63.  Paul was born on May 20, 1958, in Little Falls, New York to Frank L. Snyder & Isabelle Noake-Scheider Snyder, and siblings Leta, Skip, Jack, Cindi, Maude, and Patrick.

Paul attended Mott Community College before joining the U.S. Army as a Medic. After being honorarily discharged, he began working as a miner.  On December 31, 2005, Paul married Mary in Arizona, joining their families; Jennie, Athena, Sarah S., Becca, Skip, Corey, Sarah D., Josh, Vick, and Jason.

Family & friends were very important to Paul, passing on his love of rocks to his children.  He always wanted to try to help others whenever and wherever he could.  He had groups of friends from all over, from New York to Michigan, to Arizona.  Paul loved to give and he loved to help orchestrate events that would help benefit others.  He was known to look up at the stars and enjoy the view from time to time.  One of his favorite sayings was "I never met a cookie I didn't like". Paul was one of the co-founders of the Brothers and Little Sisters Karaoke Motorcycle Club and was often found creating fundraisers to help them out.

He loved singing, playing the guitar, fishing, collecting rocks, and collecting and shooting guns.  He "lived out loud", and his quotes and saying were very expressive and usually full of colorful metaphors.

Paul leaves behind his children Jennie Snyder (Matthew Buys), Athena Stevens, Sarah Sparks (James Norris), Rebecca Gales, Skip Corbin (Tonya), Corey Corbin (Rachel), and Sarah Dillard (Aaron), many brothers and sisters he has adopted along life's path, 21 Grandchildren, 1 Great-Grandchild, and 3 beloved pets.

He is preceded in death by his loving wife Mary Snyder, his mother Isabelle Louise Noake, his father Frank L. Snyder, his sisters Cindi Corbin and Leta Gruebel, and his brothers Patrick, Maude, Frank, Jr. "Skip", and Jack Snyder.
