Capt. Fred Snyder is seen here at Kittyhawk, N.C., the site of the Wright brothers' first flight. He is survived by his wife, Pam; and daughters, Rebecca and Cassandra. Fred served as a pilot in the U.S. Navy. He joined Seaboard in 1967 and also flew with Flying Tigers and FedEx.
The following memorial tribute was contributed by Capt. Ken Kahn.
Fred was always very active; enjoying light airplanes, boats, and motorcycles. He and Pam lived in several places during his career. I remember visiting them over the years in Staten Island, New Jersey, California, and London (when Fred and Pam lived there during the Saudia operation). They also did quite a bit of additional traveling. They took me skiing for the first time, near their home in New Jersey. Later, we went skiing together in Vermont. I flew in small planes with Fred a couple of times, and was always glad to run into him on the line.Fred will always remain in my memory as he was, friendly and outgoing; never older than the last time I saw him.
