Ray Snyder, 82

| November 16, 2021 7:00 AM

Ray Snyder, 82, a lifetime resident of the Kootenai Valley, died Nov. 11 in Libby. He was born Nov. 5, 1939, on the Bowman Place north of Libby, the youngest of 10 children born to Myer and Viola Snyder.

Ray had been a logger here his entire life, working for several area logging companies. Ray was best remembered by co-workers for always wearing cowboy boots while he was sawing. He never liked to be seen without them. He enjoyed the outdoors, most especially hunting and fishing.

Surviving him is a sister, Lila Lucas, and many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by sisters, Helen Berg, Ada Flatt, Alda Dudley, Lola Sichting and Geneva Lybyer, and brothers, Harold, Daniel and Franklin Snyder.
