Ernie was a fine man who gave of himself to others both in everyday life, in Scouting and on the range. Asking the best of others, just a boy that never grew-up having fun. This Eagle scout would have never made it with out the support of one who laid down his life to help other boys become men.
Proud to call you my friend.

Ernie not only was my student project co-advisor, and my first Delco Radio Supervisor, he photographed my wedding in 1972. Ernie was called upon to launch the careers of many engineers and co-workers and he set the tone of constant improvement with a sound engineering approach for my 40-year career with the company. He will not be forgotten by folks like me.
My deepest condolences to Ernie's family. Best regards,
Gary L. Stahl

The Snyder family and Ernie are in my prayers. With Mr. Snyder's passing, I think all my dad's best friends from Delco and the coffee club are now gone. I'll always remember hearing Mr. Snyder tell old Delco stories. He was a good man and friend to many. Good bye ole friend.

I lost contact with Ernie after leaving for the Navy in 1994. He was a very good friend to me. I loved shooting rifles on his team. He got me a job working at the rifle range at Camp Buffalo for two summers. I think he always had the heart of a teenager and an unrelenting desire to help troubled kids, even at his own peril. I will always remember the good times we had shooting, his stories of his
