Warren Snyder

May 17, 2024

Warren Dale Snyder of Raleigh, North Carolina entered into the presence of the Lord on May 17, 2024.

Warren was born in Elkland, PA on May 27, 1938 to Alan J. and R. Irene (Dyer) Snyder. His early years were spent in Pennsylvania and western New York State.

He received his BS in Business Administration from the University of Rochester, Rochester NY, where he also played soccer and was captain of the team in his Senior year.

Warren began his work career in the business field, but soon felt a call to the pastoral ministry. Warren and his young wife Mary, and baby David traveled west to Pasadena CA where he earned his Master of Divinity degree at Fuller Theological Seminary.

Warren served pastorates in VT, NY and MA. After 10 years of full-time pastoral work, he continued pastoring in official and unofficial capacities while teaching in the Reading MA Public School System, and on into retirement.

Warren loved people and so many have been touched by his friendship, ministry, counsel and care.

Warren was preceded in death by his parents, his brother, Arlen K. Snyder, and his infant son, Stephen Paul Snyder.

He leaves behind his wife of 63 years, Mary C. (Berger) Snyder of Raleigh NC; his children David A. Snyder, Elisabeth D. White (Scott), Catherine M. Organ (Scott); his grandchildren Victoria A. Baldus (Rudy), Alex M. White, Isabelle M. White, Christian S. Organ, Rebecca C. Organ, Grace C. Organ, Faith C. I. Organ, Micah S. A. Organ; his brothers, David A. Snyder (Jean), Jerry T. Snyder (Chris).
