If Dad were here he would start off saying….Hey, did you hear the one about?
If I had to come up with one word to describe my father, I could not do it.
Vic, my Dad was more than that. He was loving, kind, respectful, smart, determined, had great integrity and was sometimes stubborn.
All things he taught me, well, I will be forever grateful.
Taught me how to drive, not just a car with standard transmission, but a boat as well. And while he was teaching me he would test me, make me think. There was always a lesson to learn, pay attention.
I still remember when I was a teen driving our boat, 20 footer..la la la cruising along and out of nowhere, he balled up a paper bag, threw it into the gulf and told me he just fell overboard and I needed to rescue him. I just looked at him funny....the lesson, well he says I am gonna drown if you don't go back and get me. So I had to go through the motions, turn the boat around and retrieve Dad, the paper bag.
Dad taught me how to change my own oil in my car, replace a fuse and flip the breaker back on when it trips.
For those of you who called on him to fix something, you know what I am talking about.
Smart Man he was. Lived a beautiful life, a life uncommon.
He had many adventures. Always told me when he got old he was gonna buy a big boat and sail around the world. He came close to his ultimate dream. He bought many boats and traveled the US in an RV.
He camped, sailed, traveled and enjoyed his time here on earth. And for anyone who had the pleasure of knowing him I am sure you could remember him telling a joke or two. He's probably telling jokes in heaven.
I know he is smiling down on us today, his salvation was secured by his faith in Christ alone. I have Blessed assurances he is in heaven.
The doctors couldn't fix my Dad, but he is whole again, with his new body.
So today I honor my father with praises and I thank you Dad for being the kind of father every kid should have. I was so lucky to have been raised by you.
No doubt, you’ll will be missed by all who knew you.
I Love you Dad,

My deepest sympathy to the family and friends of Victor Snayberger. May you find comfort in knowing our Heavenly Father holds out the hope of the resurrection for our dead loved ones. His son,Jesus,said "all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out". John 5:28,29. Our dead loved ones are in God's memory and one day he will resurrect them to a paradise Earth. Psalms 37:9,10,11,29 Job 14:13-15 says he has a yearning to do so. Isn't that comforting to know? Revelation 21:3,4 says that one day on this Earth death will be no more neither will pain or mourning be any more.

Even so we are in RI now we still think of Vic often. Every time we needed an electrician we could always count on him to fix it. We are grateful to have you and Shirley in our life for a few years. Its been wonderful knowing you. God took you home, Vic, where all of us will be someday, see you there.

This page and all the memories shared here are so eloquently put together to showcase glimpses into the life of a man who had so much in his heart and family. It's an honor to be able to look at all these memories and brings me back to the time when we watched the old slideshow that had been converted from the projector film reel and showed all those old memories from Vic's life. He always had a smile on his face and in his soul and he will be dearly missed. My thoughts and prayers are with the family and hope that these beautiful memories can bring peace and happiness in this time of grieving.
Love to all!
