The Snyder Funeral Home of Fredericktown is honored to serve the family of Karl Steve Kennedy.

  • Steve and I were roommates in Phoenix for a few months in 1984, before his family was able to relocate out west. I was a nineteen year old boy at the time, so Steve took me under his wing as we worked long hours in the desert and he never once complained about the hours or the work, in general. Steve was a good friend and coworker and was well liked by everyone in the Western Division. My thoughts and prayers are with the Kennedy family.

  • Steve and I were the only tenors in the choir when Miss Darling first came to FHS.
    We had a great friendship. My first boy / girl party was at his house. I am saddened with the news of his departure. I regret that I will not be able to attend the funeral. My prayers are with the Kennedy family.

  • So many fond memories with the Kennedy family growing up in Fredericktown. My deepest sympathy in the loss of Steve.

  • Our deepest sympathies to the entire Kennedy family. As a child I vividly remember how creative, hard working and funny Steve was. Always willing to help with anything and everything , truly a great man and family friend. It always amazed me the skills, innovations, and creations the Kennedy family was instilled with and Steve was no exception.

  • my deepest sympathies for the Kenndy family. I always look forward to seeing Steve at work. He always made us smile and laugh. He surely will be miss.

  • So sorry, knew the Kennedys most of my life. Prayers for peace and comfort.
