John Westly Snyder, age 79, of Belding, passed away at Metro Health Hospital on Monday, August 7, 2023. He was born in Lansing, MI on March 25, 1944, the son of Wavel and Lucille (Graham) Snyder. On November 28, 1970 John married the love of his life and mother of his children, Rose Lance. John was a devoted husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather. Family was the most important aspect of his life. He was a generous man with a large heart and was always ready to help those in need. Aside from his nurturing nature he was a funny man with an impeccable sense of humor. He would say he was the funniest man he knew. John was always ready to play an impractical joke on someone. In his younger years he was an avid outdoorsman. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, camping and was always ready for an adventure. John will be deeply missed by his family.
