Obituary of Ronald Lee Snider

Please share a memory of Ronald to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

Ronald Lee Snider was born in Toledo, Ohio on January 30, 1949.   He graduated from Woodward High School in Toledo.   Giving his life to Christ at the young age of nine, Ron was a devout Christian.   For many years he worshipped at East Toledo Baptist Church and studied to become a Pastor.

A hard worker, Ron was employed as a production line worker at Chrysler Toledo Machining in Perrysburg, Ohio.   He wed the former Roxanne Collum on December 6, 1996.   Being that their birthdays were just ten days apart they often had one big celebration together.   Ronald considered himself to be blessed.   He was welcomed into Roxanne’s family with open arms.   The duo was the best of friends and spent a great deal of time together.   Although their marriage ended and they went their separate ways after four years of marriage, the couple remained confidants for more than two decades.

Ron retired from Chrysler in 2006 after more than forty years of employment.   He loved the Christmas season and often went all-out with his holiday decorations.   Ron found his little slice of heaven on earth at Marblehead, Ohio, where he rented a cabin for three weeks at a time.   He enjoyed spending time at the lighthouse, popping open a bottle of wine and playing a game of Scrabble.   He had a soft spot in his heart for cats and frequently took in strays in need of a loving home.

Ronald Lee Snider, age 73, of Toledo, Ohio, passed away unexpectedly at home on Monday; December 5, 2022.   His passing was preceded by his parents, but he leaves his former spouse and close friend: Roxanne Snider to cherish his memory.

Ronald’s care has been entrusted to Merkle Funeral Service, North Monroe; 2442 North Monroe Street, Monroe, Michigan 48162 (734) 384-5185. Cremation has taken place through the on-site crematory, Covenant Cremation of Erie, Michigan.
