Robert Snyder died on Nov. 18, 2018. Born in Alabama on July 16, 1941, he taught at Glenbard East in the 1960s and 1970s and moved to New Orleans in 1978 where he taught at a state school. In 1990, he returned to Illinois and met the love of his life, Robert Schubert. They married in Illinois in 2011, when the law finally allowed, but their commitment predates that by over 20 years. Bob then taught at Glenbard East until he transferred to Glenbard West in 1993 where he spent the rest of his career in the Special Education Department. He retired in 2002. 

His survivors are his husband, Bob, and two magnificent retired greyhounds, Tina and Reilly. Donations in his memory can be made to the Sunburst Project at the Greyhound Alliance []. 

Arrangements were handled by Zimmerman-Harnett Funeral Home in Forest Park.

Mr. Snyder was a teacher of mine at Glenbard East H. S. He was a great teacher and a remarkable, kind man. Rest in peace. Thank you for being in my life.
