Thomas Leroy Snider was born on November 27, 1935, in Marshalltown, IA, to Elmer and Inga (Rierson) Snider. After graduating from Green Mountain High School, Tom joined the Marines and proudly served his country during the Korean War. He was the proud definition of "once a Marine, always a Marine." In October of 1968, Thomas was united in marriage to Nadine Hunt. He spent most of his career as a car salesman for Jensen Ford in Marshalltown and George White Chevrolet in Ames, IA. Tom was even featured in a 1974 Time's Magazine article about prominent car salesmen. He was a member of several local Veteran's Associations, such as the American Legion. Tom enjoyed spending time playing cards at the Senior Citizen's Center, fishing, and watching football. The family would like to extend special thanks to the staff and administration at Southridge for their passionate care.
Tom is survived by his children, Steve Snider of Davenport, IA, Penny Snider of Kansas; three close nieces and nephews that were near and dear to him: Rick (Jill) Snider of Marshalltown, Tim (Connie) Snider of Green Mountain, IA, Pam (Kip) Brown of Gladbrook, IA; a stepdaughter, Linda (Tom) Shollenbarger of Marshalltown; a stepson, Gary Hunt of Cedar Rapids; several grandchildren and great grandchildren; two sisters: Betty Eubanks of Oklahoma and Jean Aman of Marshalltown; and many other nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his parents, his wife, Nadine; a daughter in infancy, Sheryl; three brothers, Larry, Don, and Richard; and a great niece, Heather Snider.
I will always remember how Tom took a 17 year old kid who knew little about cars & serving people and trained him at several of his service stations. I had loads of fun along with work over those years and Tom was a great employer, always fair and reliable with me. He will be missed. Sincerely Jay Carollo
My dear Uncle will be greatly missed.
Tom had a way of making us each feel special. And was one of the best memory tellers ever. He always had a story to tell of his past and always had memories of my Dad to share. See you later. Love Kathi.
