Ensign Snyder was a member of Sigma Phi while at the university.

He was cited for distinguished service. The Navy Cross citation reads: “The Navy Cross is presented to Charles J. Snyder, Ensign, U.S. Navy (Reserve Force), for distinguished service in the line of his profession as Commanding Officer of the U.S.S. C-321, engaged in the important, exacting, and hazardous duty of patrolling the waters of the War Zone and operating against enemy submarines.”

He eventually died of bronchial pneumonia.
