From Sarah Sneider:

A Celebration of the Life of Harry Sneider will be held on Saturday, July 12 at 5:00pm at the former Ambassador College Student Center.  It’s currently called the Maranatha High School Student Center, 169 S. St. John Ave., Pasadena, CA 91105. It’s located between the former AC track and the Ambassador Auditorium, places Harry loved!
So honored and blessed to have spent 45 years with this wonderful man!

Harry Sneider raised my level of courage to a new level!  Standing front court waiting for the impact of a racquetball against my exposed hindquarters.  Quite an experience and quite a wonderful human being and an inspiration for all who had the privilege of knowing him!  Jim Perkins

It's rare to know a man who seems always to be "up"! But Harry was such a man. He knew how to look on the bright side of everything, and lift the spirits of those around him. He could have a great time with struggling college students and world class athletes alike.

I played tons of racquetball and handball with Harry. Of course I could never even come close to beating him.

As for Harry at AC Ambassador Clubs and in general: He was a very funny and very caring man! He said what he thought. He lived what he said. He was honest.

It was a blessing to know him and see him smile.
