Derek Snyder 1979-2016 Derek Snyder was born on August 17th, 1979 in Fredericksburg, Virginia to Starr Snyder. He grew up in Houston, Texas with his beloved brother Corey and sister Karen. Derek attended Langham Creek High School before leaving Texas for a life in New York City. He loved writing and playing music, building computers, his dog Skittles, and spending time with close friends. Those who knew him, knew him to be a gentle soul, a hardworking man, and accepting of all. Our kindhearted Derek was taken too soon on October 2, 2016. He is survived by his wife Nadia, mother Starr Snyder; sister Karen Olmstead (Scott), brother Corey Beasley (Livia), nephews Gregoire and Geoffrey; and many friends. All of us who love him dearly miss him in life, but pray for his peace until we meet again.
