SNYDER, Danny L., age 72, of Dayton, passed away Friday, March 24, 2023 at Miami Valley Hospital. Danny was a loving Husband, Dad and Grandpa. He was a hard worker taking care of his family through the years. Danny retired from Apex Tool Group after 48 1/2 years of service, was a U.S. Army Veteran, enjoyed fishing, liked classic cars and boating.
Our home is filled with projects that showed his love for our family including the house itself, which he built. Danny had multiple hobbies like woodworking, throwing darts and fishing where he participated in many fishing tournaments over the years throughout Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana. He was also a long-time member of Lyre Lake where he fished with family and friends. When at home, camping or pretty much anywhere, Danny loved hunting for bugs and snakes with his grandkids, nieces and nephews.
Danny was always excited to go out for breakfast and get iced coffees. While relaxing at home, Danny listened to 60’s music on his classic juke box which played his large collection of 45’s. He also enjoyed watching sports live and on television like college basketball, football and car racing. Danny’s love of classic and muscle cars inspired him to attend Mecum Auto Auctions with family and friends.
