Kenneth Scott Snyder "Kenny, Kennyballs," 53, of Springfield, Ill., died peacefully Wednesday, June 7, 2023, surrounded by his family. Kenny was born Sept. 29, 1969, in Springfield at St. John's Hospital to Marlin Sr. and Darlene (Kunze) Snyder. Kenny went to Springfield schools – Hay Edwards and graduated from Lee Developmental Center in 1991, where Kenny met his favorite teacher, Janet Stratton.

Kenny's passion was his family and family friends – he knew no stranger and all that met him became his instant friend for life. He loved playing video games, watching WWF/WWE wrestling and movies, plus goofing around with all his siblings, and nieces and nephews. If Kenny met you – he remembered you, no matter the amount of time that passed between meetings.

Olive, Doris Westbrook of Staunton, Bessie Kaylor of California; and bunches of cousins.
