Richard Walter Snyder was born July 2, 1952, in Davenport, a son of Walter and Helen (Saville) Snyder. He graduated from Assumption High School, class of 1971.


A lifelong resident of Davenport, a devout Catholic, and a member of Holy Family Church, Dick was a beloved member of his communities. He was an incredibly hard worker and a grocery store utility clerk, handling everything from bagging groceries to accepting deliveries. He worked for over 30 years for Eagle Food Stores, and then another 15 years for Schnucks. Born with significant medical issues, Dick overcame all obstacles and rarely ever missed a day of work.  


Dick was a passionate fan of the St. Louis Cardinals, and he enjoyed watching classic sitcoms.  Most of all, Dick deeply loved his family, including his cousins, nieces, nephews, and grand-nieces and nephews, as his vast collection of photographs attests. Dick never missed an opportunity to send a hand-written Christmas or birthday card. Dick truly was one-of-a-kind and will be deeply missed.   


Survivors include his sister-in-law Deborah Snyder of Rock Island; niece and nephews Thomas (Lisa) Snyder of Denver, CO, Martin Snyder of Chicago, Julie (Jeff) Snyder of Maplewood, NJ, Stephen (Miranda) Wilson of Franklin, TN, Bradley Wilson of Rock Island, Grant (Sudeepti) Snyder of Chicago; and several cousins.


He was preceded in death by his parents and brothers William and Thomas.
