Obituary: Zackary Aaron Snider, 28, Hart.

Zackary Aaron Snider, 28, of Hart, went home to his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on Tuesday, February 25, 2020, while snowmobiling; something he loved.  He was born March 29, 1991, in Shelby, the son of Andy and Beth (Riley) Snider.

Zack graduated from Hart High School, class of 2009, and continued his education at Michigan State University, earning a Bachelor of Agribusiness Management degree in 2013. He was a passionate farmer, agricultural entrepreneur, and partner with his father, since he was a child. Zack and Priscilla were full partners, in Snider Farms, with Andy and Beth.

Zack had many hobbies, including water sports, dirt biking, and snowmobiling. He was also passionate about his pulling truck, having participated in truck pulls throughout the state, and was a member of West Michigan Pullers. Zack was a brother of the FarmHouse fraternity during his time at MSU, and more recently a member of the board of directors for Michigan Pork Producers and Michigan Allied Poultry Industry.

On June 23, 2012, Zack married his high school sweetheart, Priscilla Lee Vela, and on October 5, 2017, they welcomed the birth of their son, Sawyer Lee Snider. He was devout in his faith, and a loving family man. Zack will truly be missed by all who knew him.
