Robert Michael Snyder, 32

Robert Michael Snyder, 32, of Boyertown, passed away Monday September 20, 2021 in the Trauma Unit at the Lehigh Valley Hospital – Cedar Crest.

Born in Phoenixville, he was the son of Lori I. (Rothenberger) Snyder and the late Robert H. Snyder.

Bobby was a graduate of Boyertown High School. He worked for Local Union 135, doing distribution gas lines, and then with Union 57, traveling with the pipe-line. Bobby was a laborer with his last position known as a straw boss. He was a member of the Sons of the American Legion, Gablesville Association, Oley Fire Co., Friendship Hook & Ladder, and the Boyertown Orioles.

Bobby loved riding his motorcycle, hunting, and going to his family cabin. He was an enthusiast and avid thrill seeker and enjoyed ATV riding. Bobby’s true passion was riding his motorcycle. His sayings were: “Live to Ride”, “Live life to the fullest”, “Life was all about the ride”, and “Two wheels move the soul”. Bobby was the most beautiful son a mother could ever hold in her heart. Bobby had a heart of gold and loved to help everyone. He had an infectious smile that could light up the room! Let Bobby be a legend of our souls, for his kindness to others was always put before his own.

Surviving along with his mother are his two sisters Jessica Snyder-Debnam wife of Marc, and Nicole Bierbach wife of Dan; grandmother Judy E. Sabo; grandfather David N. Rothenberger; and nephews Destyn and Jestyn Snyder and Brice and Evan Bierbach.
