SOUTH BEND — Former Roseland Town Council member David Snyder, who was associated with a turbulent period for the town, died recently in St. Joseph, Mich., of complications related to multiple sclerosis. He was 65.

“He was very compassionate and he really had a desire to make things better,” said his wife, Dorothy Snyder, who served with him on the Roseland council.
:doh:

Snyder said her husband suffered a coronary while undergoing treatment for MS, and his Aug. 27 death was unexpected.

An obituary for David Snyder published Sunday said that he had moved to St. Joseph in 2012 in semi-retirement because of his health. It referenced a physical altercation in 2007 between Snyder and the then-Roseland town marshal from which Snyder “never physically recovered.”

Dorothy Snyder said that her husband had suffered “multiple concussions” in the incident and afterward was diagnosed with MS and post-traumatic stress disorder. “His strength and his functioning would kind of go up and down,” she said.

The Snyders were central figures in Roseland leadership during a time marked by tensions, disputes and lawsuits in the early 2000s that has been referred to as the “Snyderville era.”

Each was elected to the town’s three-member council and then married while in office in 2004, leading some — including The Tribune’s Editorial Board — to call for one of them to resign so as not to conflict with state law regarding open meetings on decision making.

Neither stepped down at that time. Dorothy Snyder did not seek re-election in 2006. David Snyder opted not to seek re-election in 2007.

During their time in office, the council and the town dealt with several hot-button issues, including town finances, police pay, signage displays by residents, code enforcement, zoning and a hotel development plan. Public meetings often turned contentious, and more than one ended in a fracas and an arrest.

A lawsuit brought by more than 200 residents in 2005 sought to oust David Snyder from the council for allegedly abusing his power.

In 2007, David Snyder was arrested for and later convicted of misdemeanor battery against a fellow councilman. Later that year, Snyder and the town marshal were involved in a physical altercation at the Town Hall after Snyder was ejected from a meeting.

Dorothy Snyder said all her husband wanted to do was help others.

“He wanted to serve on the council of Roseland to make it a better place for everybody,” she said. “That’s what he continually worked for, even though there was resistance.”

David Snyder was semi-retired from a career in real estate and enjoyed living near Lake Michigan, said his wife. He devoted much time to her care the past several years as she's been receiving cancer treatments, she said.

“He’s a huge loss,” she said.

David Snyder is survived by his wife; two sons from a prior marriage; his parents; and three siblings.

Visitation will be held from noon to 3 p.m. today at Welsheimer Family Funeral Home, 17033 Cleveland Road, South Bend, and for one hour prior to services at 11 a.m. Tuesday in Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, 1819 Oak St., Niles.
