George W. Snyder

August 14th, 2021

George W. Snyder, age 64, of Tewksbury, formerly of Everett, passed away surrounded by his loving family on August 12, 2021.

George was born on August 12, 1957, in Everett; he was the son of the late Morris and Catherine (Kelly) Snyder. George was raised in Everett and graduated from Everett Vocational High School.

Following graduation, George enlisted in the U.S. Marines on June 10, 1977. He served for more than three years before being honorably discharged as a Corporal on September 9, 1980.

George went to work in the mail room at the Boston Globe. He loved his job and made many friends while working there. After thirty-five years, George retired.

George married Toni Giordano in 1990; they lived in Everett where they welcomed their son, Joshua in 1999. In 2004, the family moved to Tewksbury.

George was an avid camper; he loved to camp anywhere, especially Camp Wahtutcah in Northwood, NH. George was a Boy Scout leader; a position he thoroughly enjoyed. As an Eagle Scout himself, George sat on the Board of Directors for the Boy Scouts. He planned many trips and activities for the organization. He also was part of the Order of the Arrow, an honor society for the Boy Scouts of America.

George will be remembered as “the life of the party.” He loved to make people laugh by playing jokes and “clowning around.” He loved to live his life to the fullest. He had friends all over because of his magnetic personality. George will also be remembered for being a perfectionist. Once he put his mind to something, it was done meticulously; George went “all out” for any project he started.

George was a loving husband, father, brother, and friend to many. He will be missed by those who knew and loved him.

George was the beloved husband of Toni Giordano-Snyder, loving father of Joshua Snyder of Tewksbury, dear brother of John “Jack” Snyder, Mary Costantino & her husband Steven, and Richard Snyder, brother -in-law of Gary Giordano, Ronald Giordano, Ricky Giordano, Robert Giordano, Anthony Giordano, Carolyn Cassidy, Gail Mingolelli and the late Greg Giordano. George is also survived by many brothers and sisters-in-law, nieces, nephews, friends and his beloved dog, Grady.

Family and friends will gather for a Mass of Christian Burial in St, Thomas of Villanova Church, 126 Middlesex Ave., Wilmington on Wednesday, August 18th at 10:00 a.m. Please go directly to church.

    George was an original, a guy who walked to his own beat in his own time. He was so much fun to be around in high school and he carried thru his entire life. It was easy to be in George’s company, he was easy going and you always felt comfortable with Georgie, he was authentic and down to earth. He was one of the good guys. My heart goes out to Toni, Josh and the whole family. He will be missed. God speed
