It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Jack Albert Snyder II, age 65, on August 26, 2023, in Richmond, Virginia. He left this world surrounded by the love of his family.

Born on September 2, 1957, Jack was a beloved son, brother, husband, father, grandfather, and friend. His life was a testament to strength, kindness, and unwavering love.

Throughout his life, Jack was known for his dedication and service to our nation. He proudly served as a Major in the United States Army for 16 years, demonstrating exceptional leadership and unwavering commitment to his fellow soldiers and country. Among his decorations was a Bronze Star, Combat Infantryman’s Badge, Parachutist Badge, and the Ranger Tab.

Upon his retirement from the military, Jack continued his life of service. He was a Financial Advisor with Edward Jones, where he loved to serve his clients and do what was best for them. For the last 28 years, he served his clients with the same integrity, discipline, dedication, and honor that defined his military career.

Jack was a family man through and through. He cherished every moment spent with his loved ones, and his greatest joy was being a husband and father. He will be remembered for his belly laughs, infectious smile, quick wit, golf swing, and love of bolognese, but mostly for the unconditional love he showed to all.

He is survived by his loving wife, Betty, his children, Catherine, Elizabeth, Jackson, and Eleanor Rose, along with their partners, AJ and Kimberly, his grandchildren, Harrison Jack and Cameron, and his siblings, Willie and Penny. He was preceded in death by his father, Jack, mother, Eleanor, and brother, Randy.
