Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.
Donald Kevin Snyder, 65, of Kansas City, MO, passed away in his home on October 11, 2022.
Kevin was born on August 24, 1957, in Independence, MO to Don and Frankie Snyder. He attended Raytown South High School and after graduation enrolled in the Ironworkers apprenticeship program.
Professionally, Kevin worked mainly for Bratton and Builders Steel. He started in the field and worked his way to field superintendent, coordinating, overseeing and bidding jobs. Kevin was always willing to help, could work with all kinds of people, and could solve problems in a way that left everybody smiling in the end. A unique quality in this line of work.
Retirement gave Kevin opportunities to be with friends, host events, and volunteer. He made time for people. Kevin transformed a pasture into a spot to have fun and celebrate. He hosted weddings, graduations, birthday parties, political fundraisers, awards banquets for the Raytown Police department, Chiefs parties, Fourth of July fireworks, spooky Halloween hayrides, Sunday Fun Days, not to mention the times when folks just “stopped by.”
Kevin sat on the board of the Raytown Police Fund for Public Benefit, Inc. and enjoyed organizing and playing in the annual golf tournament.
Fun followed Kevin everywhere. He lived his beliefs and stated them often:
“If you can’t have fun, don’t do it.”
“The more the merrier.”
“I love life.”
You are greatly loved and will be greatly missed, Kevin Snyder.
Kevin leaves behind his wife, Kim Snyder; children, Alicja and Bradley Carter, Konrad and Rachel Snyder; grandson, Nile Snyder; mother, Charlotte Belger; brother and sister, John and Shirley Belger.
Kevin also leaves behind so many, many friends.
He was preceded in death by his parents and John Belger II.
A private memorial service will be held at a later date.
