William Daniel Snyder was the son of William Kester Snyder and Della Amanda Martin. He was born in Liberty Township, Clark County, Kansas. He was known to most of his family and friends as "Bill". He attended Emporia, Kansas State Teachers College starting in the fall of 1924, leaving in the spring of 1926. He excelled in track and field events, winning medals for the 100 yard dash and the 220 yard dash.

Bill married Albertine Carolyn Becquet, daughter of Norbert Joseph Becquet and Emma Jane Dufrin, on 8 May 1937 in Sublette, Haskell County, Kansas. The marriage ended in divorce in 1957.

On 27 Dec 1959, Bill married Bractis Rebecca (Chubb) Heryford, daughter of George Elmer Chubb and Iva May Mattox, in Pratt, Pratt County, Kansas.

Bill retired 4 March 1967 from the Garden City Co-op after working there for 16 years as head bookkeeper.

He was a Master Mason for 29 years and held many titles during that time. He was a member of the Masonic Lodge #246 in Garden City and served as Secretary for a total of 12 years. He also joined the Order of Eastern Star in 1947, holding various offices. The Masonic Lodge was very important to Bill and became the center of his life. A son (Ronald Snyder) and daughter (Kathye Snyder) survive. He was a very kind and loving father to his children.

A funeral was held in Garden City, Kansas at the United Methodist Church on 15 Oct 1975 and his body was taken to Bucklin, Kansas, where he was buried next to his mother and father. Wilbur Morris conducted a Masonic Graveside Service.
