CASTLE DALE - Our beloved "Daddy Bug," Paul Christopher (Snyder), left his family to go to our Heavenly Father after many years of battle with pancreatic cancer on Oct. 21, 2008.
Paul was born April 7, 1943 in Kansas City, Mo., to Paul A. Snyder and Elizabeth Morse.
When Paul was 17, he enlisted in the U.S. Navy. He served four tours in Vietnam.
Paul loved kick boxing; he spent 11 years as light heavyweight champion of the world.
Paul was very soft spoken and loved by all who knew him.
He loved his beautiful daughter, Katy, whom he spent many days watching grow into a lovely young woman. Katy was the person who taught him about unconditional love.
He loved his handsome young son, Robert, whom he watched make much better choices then he did when he was his age. He was so very proud of Robby and loved him unconditionally.
He loved beautiful scenery, faces, babies, all the wonderful things in the world.
He had a delightful sense humor and was an amazing artist. He could replicate any photograph and the beautiful scenery and faces out of his head.
Paul will be missed by all.
Paul was preceded in death by Betty Morse, mother; Paul A., father; Teeny, sister; Marietta, wife; Bryan, son; Doug, brother; and Robert Brown, father-in-law.
