Ross "Bud" Alan Snyder, age 62, of South Whitley, IN passed away at 4:33 pm Monday, October 14, 2019 at his South Whitley home. Bud was born on November 24, 1956 in Birmingham, MI, to the late Ross Albert and Marjorie Mary (Hamlin) Snyder.
Bud grew up in Michigan and graduated from Howell High School with the Class of 1975, earning Magna Cum Laude. In 1979 he moved to Columbia City and on June 20, 1981, he was united in marriage to Laura Ann Honeick at Hope Lutheran Church, by Pastor Howard Marken.
Bud was the former owner of Coast to Coast Hardware in Columbia City beginning in 1979. From there, he followed his love of construction, and he became a General Contractor. He worked in this field for over 30 years.
Bud was an avid hockey fan. As a matter of fact, he loved any sports teams from his home State of Michigan. He loved following his Detroit teams throughout the sports seasons with his daughters: Red Wings hockey, Lions football, and Tigers baseball. He was fond of the University of Michigan, vacations with his family to Gatlinburg, TN and he had a soft spot for all pets.
Survivors include his wife, Laurie Snyder of South Whitley; daughters, Shannon (Daniel) Doege of Fort Wayne; Lindsey (Cody) Horvath of South Whitley; granddaughter, Mackenzie Doege and grandson Camden Horvath; and cousin, Sherry (Ron) Szot of Baton Rouge, LA. He was preceded in death by his parents, Ross and Marjorie Snyder and sister, Barbara Studebaker.

Funeral service will be at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, October 19, 2019 at the funeral home with Pastor Stephen Johnson officiating.
