Emerson Grant “E.G.” Snider passed from this life at the age of 95 on July 16, 2021. He was born May 4, 1926 in Clinton, Oklahoma. His family would later move to Buffalo, Missouri where he would graduate from high School. He was drafted into the Navy and served during the final years of World War II. Upon discharge from the Navy, he would marry his high school sweetheart Erda Montgomery and move to Albuquerque, New Mexico where he would raise his family. He went to work at Mead Foods Inc. in 1951 and worked for the company for 33 years before retirement. He and Erda then opened a ceramic shop where they poured, fired, and painted ceramic figures which they sold out of their shop. They taught classes and helped others with their projects.
