Cancer Threw Us a Curveball: Former Chairman of NACUSO, Pete Snyder Passes

Pete Snyder and his wife of 43 years, Dollie

Pete Snyder, a long time, former NACUSO Board Member and Chair passed away last week from a long battle with prostate cancer.

NACUSO CEO Jack Antonini said, “Pete was an integral part of NACUSO (the National Association of Credit Union Service Organizations), and a real leader in the credit union movement. Pete served as a Board Member for many years as well as our Chairman of NACUSO for several years, helping to strengthen NACUSO. He also contributed to NACUSO by leading our Advisory Boards of both Investment Services and Insurance Services working with many professionals in the CU and CUSO industry. Pete was more than an industry leader, he was a friend. He gave generously of his time, and truly had a heart for helping other people. He will be missed.”

We learned of Pete’s passing from his daughter, Christy Farmer, who poignantly tells the story of Pete’s battle with prostate cancer on this GoFundMe Page.

Guy Messick, NACUSO Legal Counsel added,  “Pete was a pioneer and thought leader for successful investment programs in credit unions.    He loved baseball and singing.   He was a bundle of energy and encouraged others to succeed.  He will be missed.  He struggled with his illness quite a while and it depleted his financial resources.   The link enables his friends and family to help his family with the costs incurred. “

Pete’s family would appreciate any support you could give to help them through this difficult time.
