    I’ll never forget everything you taught us, my source of common sense and wisdom came from everything you taught us growing up. You were like a father to me and so much of you will live on through me. You are more then here in spirit you are apart of my personality, my morals and my life has been influenced by you and the unconditional love you always shared. You will be dearly missed, Yukon will always remember the doggy rides and doggy runs. He will always have a fresh bowl of water. I’ll always take care of anything lesser than myself. I’ll live easy and stay mellow. I know you’ll be waiting for me at the pearly gates someday with all of the dogs..Vino, Megan, Sparrow ,Duke, Yukon, Haley, Major, Bina Totina, and all the other I may not have names.. you were special and I can’t wait until I can tell my son ALL about you and the great things you taught me. You truly believed in us and always let us know what our strengths were for that I’ll always be greatful! REST EASY!!! He believed in everybody, all of us.. We were all his children We were all HELLA serious A hunter and a surveyor A believer and a teacher A midnight toker A hell of a dog owner He was lyin or he was dying He was a lover and a fighter A father and a rider Man that’s just Roger Leroy Snyder

    You be lost your shotgun in a canal hunting with Geary Matheny and Geary went to his dad’s and got a magnet because you weren’t leaving without your gun. So many times we all hung out together after a hunt. That is all you guys wanted to do…hunt. So sorry for the families loss but he is at peace

    We went all the way through school together. Grew up in the neighborhood had many of the same friends. Returned to the neighborhood as 2nd generation residents. So very sorry to hear of your passing. God has you in his arms now. Rest in Peace Roger.

    Roger, I was so sad when you left Caltrans and now so deeply saddened to hear of your passing! You were a TRUE FRIEND to me (treated me like a sister) and I will always remember all our talks about your family and dogs. There was no bs’ing between the two of us – thank you for all your help, fun stories, your wonderful smile/laugh and most of all your friendship! My condolences to your family. Love, Norene Nakashima

    I first met Roger here at work (Caltrans). Roger was the most down to earth person I knew. He loved being outdoors with his dogs. He knew how to tell a good story about things that he did hunting or camping. He was also a very intelligent person. He was easy to make friends with and he would give you the shirt off his back if you needed it. Roger was a loving and caring person. I will always remember his friendship. What a wonderful person. May he Rest in Peace. My most sincerest condolences to his family. God Bless you Roger,
    Thomas Davison
