Steven Snider, age 66, a resident of Rice Lake, Wisconsin, died on Tuesday, July 20th, 2021 as a result of a traffic accident. Steven was born in Shell Lake, Wisconsin to William and Verona (Lawrence) Snider, but primarily grew up on the family farm in Springbrook. He moved to Minong after graduating high school, and on a blind date he met Linda Olson of Spooner, WI. They were united in marriage on December 19th, 1981. He often mentioned that he’d previously been famous for red headed women not being his “type” and was offered a fortune if he’d been willing to marry one. He did turn that down, but married one years later anyway. He worked for the USDA inspecting product (primarily meat) to ensure public safety and fought actively to uphold the quality of the food being supplied to consumers. His job for the USDA required him to live in various places during his lifetime which included: Cashton, WI; Truman, MN; West Union, MN, and New Richmond, WI. He was a devoted husband, loving father, faithful friend, an avid outdoorsman and was an active member of the Red Cedar Church in Rice Lake.
