Noah Vance Snyder

“If you want a happy ending, that depends, of course, on where you stop your story.” — Orson Welles

Noah Vance Snyder had his ending on Thursday, June 4, 2020 at the age of 39. Those who loved Noah would have walked around the world and back to keep him with us. He will now live in our hearts.

Noah was born on January 25, 1981, in Janesville, Wisconsin, and grew up in Suffield, Connecticut, where he attended Suffield High School. He graduated from Asnuntuck Community College with a degree in Machine Technology. He was employed with R & D Dynamics as a Machinist.
“Dad” spent his weekends with his boys, hiking, fishing, swimming and doing artwork. Noah's two sons, Cole Stephen Snyder and Robert Anthony Snyder reside with their mother, Amy Laughlin.

He is survived by his sons and his parents, James Richard Snyder and Suzanne Hartman Irwin (James Alfred Irwin), his brother, Dr. Mose Snyder of Burlington, Vermont and his sister, Caitlin Armbrister (Adam Armbrister) of Lawrence, Kansas, a paternal aunt, Marianne Pennell of Akron, PA, his longtime friend Michael Preli of Suffield and his beloved girlfriend Savannah. He was predeceased by two uncles, Howard Hartman and Robert Hartman.

From boy to man, Noah's curiosity and quickness gave him an uncommon depth of understanding that both set him apart and made him a joy to have around. There are no words to adequately express the love and pride that Noah had for his sons, and he treasured the time that they spent together.
He was a loyal friend with a ready smile as well as versatile and inventive. Noah had a fervent sense of justice and lived life to the fullest. He had the gifts of charisma and resilience. He was a poet, an avid reader and original thinker, and if you wanted to debate a subject, Noah was your man.

Heritage Funeral Home 1240 Mountain Road, West Suffield has been entrusted with the private arrangements. For online condolences please visit

I met Noah back in 2016. We shared many laughs and had many deep conversations. There were a lot of things to love about Noah, but to me his best quality was his resilience. He never let life get him down. Every time he got knocked down, he’d get right back up. We haven’t spoken much in the last few years, but he would often pop into my head and I would wonder how he was. To hear of this news today was very sad. His family, especially his parents and sons, are in my thoughts and prayers.

I don’t even know what to say. I’m so saddened to hear this. I didn’t know Noah, but I sure know and totally love my Uncle Jimmy. I was in college in Pennsylvania when Noah was born. He was my little cousin who lived in CT. I met him only one or two times and always accepted I never would know him because of the age and distance. I wish I hadn’t. Just reading the words of those who really knew Noah and knowing he was my Uncle’s son; I know he had many of the same wonderful qualities of his Dad. I can only imagine what the entire family is going through. If there are true words of comfort I don’t know them. The Orson Wells quote in his tribute along with the shared memories tells me there were a lot of bright and joyful times in Noah’s life. I hope there will be some comfort in remembering and holding those memories in your hearts always.

Noah I have so many memories of our time together. Our time in Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts and camping with each other. Playing Nintendo together at each other's houses. I remember when I first got a computer and you showed me how to write a computer program. I think we were only 10 or 11 years old at the time. It blew my mind that you knew how to do that. That really influenced me and I ended up becoming a computer programmer. It is still what I do today for work. A few years later you showed me how to connect to online BBS’s on the computer. This was a way to chat and play games with people online before the internet even existed. I remember your alias was Ducky. I met so many wonderful people through there. It opened up a whole new world to me and that would have been impossible without you. You taught me so much and opened my eyes to so many things. You were so incredibly smart. In high school, we had so many adventures together. I will cherish all those memories. They are a core part of me. It pains me so much that you are no longer with us. I will miss you my friend.
