Rondal Snyder 83 of Liberty passed away on November 2, 2020 after several months at the Whitewater Commons nursing home.
Rondal was born on January 2, 1937 in Connersville, IN. He was the son of Ralph and Mary Snyder and had 2 sisters, Sallee Roach and Karen Plyley. Rondal married the love of his life, Jean (Richmond) Snyder after proposing first when they met in Kindergarten. It took Jean a few years to eventually say “Yes”, and on October 4th1955, somewhere in Kentucky, they eloped to get married.
Rondal and Jean had 4 children: Mike, Mitchel (died shortly after birth), Malcolm and Brad.
Rondal was also loved and will be missed by his grandchildren: Mallary (Snyder) Meriwether, Katlin (Snyder) Davis, Alexandria Snyder, Danielle Snyder, Andrew Snyder, Mitch Snyder, Matt Snyder. And a Great Granddaughter, Anna Claire Davis.
Rondal enjoyed spending time at local auctions, collecting coins, fixing up antique furniture. He enjoyed the time he and Jean spent fixing up their “Mini” Farm, affectionately called the Summer Palace, on Salem Road. He had collected a few old cars, one being his Model A. But we truly believed his favorite pastime was spending time with Jean in Florida, at the Mini farm or even at McDonalds in Oxford.
Rondal was a graduate of IU-East. He initially was a painter with his father Ralph and then began a career in sales with Fuller Brush and then with Federated Insurance for 20 years. Rondal also served as the Union County Probation officer for 10 years.
Rondal was preceded in death by his parents: Ralph and Mary Snyder, his sister Karen and his son Mitchel Snyder. As Rondal requested, there will be no Funeral or Calling but will have a grave site service at the Liberty Cemetery on Sat. November 7th at 10:00 AM.
