Snyder, Walter

Castleton-Walter R. Snyder, 94, a lifelong resident of Castleton, NY, passed away on February 26, 2017. He was the husband of 69 years of the late Dorothy M.

After the death of his father John Snyder, Walt supported his widowed mother and younger brother as a civilian employee of the US Army Corps of Engineers on the Hudson River.
