In Memoriam: Richard L. Snyder 1940-2014
Richard Snyder Dick Snyder

Former Pinchot Institute board member Richard Snyder passed away on November 14 after an accidental fall at his home in Milford, Pennsylvania. Dick served as Pinchot Institute board member and Treasurer 1998–2004, and was a continuing contributor to the Institute’s work in his native Pennsylvania, at Grey Towers National Historic Site, and across the country. Having retired from the corporate world and New York City, he was committed to his adopted community in Milford, the home of Grey Towers and birthplace of the Pinchot Institute. He was a natural at building coalitions and working partnerships, and fostering a sense of community that went beyond the bounds of simple geography. From his CFO days, Dick had a clear sense of organization and finance, and the improvements he brought about during his time on the board are a lasting legacy of his service. Dick was a warm and gracious human being who made the world a better place, in his community and with every life he touched.
