Perry W. Snyder

Perry W. Snyder, of Jackson, entered into eternal peace on Thursday, Sept. 27, 2007 after 15 years of life.

Perry was born on Jan. 22, 1992, the son of Perry Snyder and Amy Rowland (nee Gerbitz) in Murfreesboro, Tenn.

For the past eight years, he lived in Wisconsin with his aunt and uncle, "Mom and Dad," where he attended West Bend East High School as a freshman.

Perry loved aggressive skating, skateboarding and learning about aviation because his dream was to become a pilot.

Among his other favorite pastimes, he also loved spending time with his dog, BlueBelle, and his grandpa, whom he always had a special relationship with.

Perry will be deeply missed and forever loved by his aunt and uncle, Jennifer and Andrew Arvan of Jackson; his brothers, Nathan Chamblee of Georgia and Christopher Shaneyfeldt of Alabama; his sister, Patricia Snyder of Tennessee; his grandparents, Eugene Gerbitz of Tennessee, Kate Arvan of Howards Grove and Peter (Marilyn) Arvan of Florida; and his parents, Perry Snyder and Amy Rowland.

He is further survived by many other special aunts and uncles, cousins, other relatives and many dear and close friends.

Preceding him in death was his grandmother, Carol Gerbitz.

A gathering of family and friends will be held on Wednesday, Oct. 3, from 4 until 8 p.m. at the Phillip Funeral Home Chapel, 1420 W. Paradise Drive, West Bend.

A funeral service in memory of Perry will follow the visitation on Wednesday at the funeral home at 8 p.m.

Cremation will take place at Paradise Cremation Services of West Bend.

In lieu of flowers, memorials are appreciated to the Sharon S. Richardson Hospice Home of Sheboygan Falls, 1118 Plankview Green Blvd., Sheboygan Falls, WI 53085.
