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 and I were in the same class, and started ground school in June 1967. He and Pam quickly became good friends. I visited them on many occasions, and they were always better hosts to me than I was to them.

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.
