Brian P. Snyder, 54 of Newark, DE, passed away peacefully at home with his loving family at his side.

He was born in Wilmington, and was a graduate of the University of Delaware. Brian worked for several years as a project manager at a variety of local businesses, most recently for Bob Wagner’s Flooring.

Brian enjoyed bowling, playing poker and softball. His family will always cherish the trips to the cottage he built on the Chesapeake Bay. He went above and beyond to help others and found great joy in helping his friends and colleagues with construction projects around their homes. Above all else, he enjoyed spending time with his family, especially his daughters, and granddaughter. He will be dearly missed.

Brian is survived by his loving wife, Susan (Cox) Snyder; his daughters, Jacki Snyder and Jessica Snyder (Jeramey Foraker); his granddaughter, Riley Foraker; his mother, Mary Jane Wagner; his siblings, Keith Snyder (Chris), and Laura Wagner (Dave); and his 5 nephews and other members of his extended family.

He was preceded in death by his father, William Snyder.

Brian’s family would like to thank the doctors, nurses and staff at the Fox Chase Cancer Center in Philadelphia, for their outstanding care and support.
