The son of Carl Vernon Snider Sr. and Mary Joseph Snider, Carl grew up in Indianapolis, IN. He was born December 7, 1946, and attended Thomas Carr Howe High School.

At the age of 20 Carl was drafted into the Army during the Vietnam War. He valued this service highly and attained the rank of Army Corporal.

On October 17, 2018, Carl was chosen to be a part of the Honor Flight. This program takes veterans to Washington DC where they tour each of the memorials and monuments.

Carl worked as a tool and die maker at Western Electric/AT&T for 32 years then 20 years at R&D/Leverage. While working at R&D/Leverage, he volunteered for ten years in the Lee’s Summit High School robotics program.

He is preceded in death by his parents and granddaughter Allie, and numerous nieces and nephews.

Carl was selfless and always eager to help with anything needed. He was a “jack of all trades”. He loved his family and friends and was a stranger to no one. He enjoyed playing euchre, golf, hiking, skiing, canoeing, and bicycling. He lived his life to the fullest.
