Obituary for Glenn H. Snyder

Glenn H. Snyder, 75, passed away on March 28, 2018.
Glenn was born in Akron, OH, to the late Howard and Mary (Plaster) Snyder and lived in the Akron area his entire life. There were many things that brought joy to Glenn's life, his greatest joy was the time spent with his family. Glenn also enjoyed collecting and running American Flyer trains and spent many weekends setting up at area train shows. He and his wife also spent many Saturdays setting up at the Hartville Flea Market where he could wander in search of more trains. He was an avid fan of the Cavs and Indians, enjoyed his weekly golf leagues and worked out daily at the Y.
Glenn earned his Master’s Degree in Psychology at Kent State University and then worked as a full-time professor at the University of Akron. He was recognized by many as a pioneer in the field of alcohol and drug counselling and his students, peers and private practice clients benefitted from his knowledge and professional experience in the field of addiction treatment.
In addition to his parents, Glenn is preceded in death by his sisters, Carole Sullivan and Janice Calcamp; and father-in-law, Edward Wilhelm. He is survived by wife, Barbara Snyder; daughters, Kelly (Bill) Reed, Teresa (Michael) Roush, Kim Freeman and Tracie (Jerry) D'Antonio; step-daughters, Robin (Mark) Fenn, Jami (Shawn) Bova and Rebecca (Eddie) Miller; grandchildren, Zach, Caroline, Hannah, Clara and Andrew; step-grandchildren, Houston, Hunter, Tyler, Jesse and Heidi; brother, Lee (Amy) Snyder; mother-in-law, Virginia Wilhelm; and many nieces, nephews and friends.
