ATHENS — Marc Andrew Snyder, 49 of Athens, passed away peacefully Friday, March 10, 2023, at O’Bleness Memorial Hospital surrounded by family, one day short of his 50th birthday. Born March 11, 1973, in Athens, he was the son of Frances Elaine Miller Snyder and the late Dr. Larry Eugene Snyder.

He was a 1995 graduate of Beacon School, where he was proudly involved in basketball, swimming, and other various sports. His athleticism and enjoyment in sports in school led to his participation in the Special Olympics where his basketball team, Athens Co. Blue Devils, were the State Champions in 1989. Marc continued his participation in the Special Olympics after graduating from Beacon School and excelled in bowling. He always looked forward to participating in the annual polar bear plunge at Lake Snowden. Besides his participation in community events, Marc thoroughly enjoyed bicycling and traveling with his parents. He traveled worldwide with his family; Marc even had the opportunity to travel to Japan with his mother when he was selected as a participant through the Ohio-Japan Exchange Program. His all-time favorite trips were cruises with his parents.

Marc was associated with the Developmental Disabilities Board for his whole life. Even though he had a developmental disability, he never let it slow him down. He was consistently up for any challenge. He enjoyed working in his community and was employed by Information Destruction Services (IDS) for over 20 years. He was always eager to go to work.   

Marc is survived by his mother, Frances Elaine Miller Snyder; siblings Douglas (Susan) Snyder and Brenda (Brad) Weaver; nieces and nephews Eric Weaver, Caitlin Weaver, Ashley Snyder, Jennifer Snyder; and several aunts, uncles, and cousins.

Besides his father, he was preceded in death by uncles and aunts Robert and Dolores Snyder, Harvey and Edie Miller, LouEtta Miller Gunnet, and Ray Miller.

A memorial service will be held at noon Monday, April 10, 2023, at Christ Evangelical Lutheran Church in Athens with Pastor Chad Huebner officiating.
