Mike grew up trapping with older brother Tom Snyder and their father since the age of 10. Living in South Texas, Mike sought out reasons to be outdoors; often wandered the drainage ditches and canals fishing or shooting with his pellet gun. When asked about why Mike volunteers for Trinity Oaks’ veteran Hero Celebrations, he replied, “We can do what we do, because of what they have done.” He recognizes his opportunity to hunt and fish is because of the freedoms provided by the men and women of our military. “I want to show my appreciation and that’s why we just go over the top to make sure their experience with Trinity Oaks is unforgettable. It’s how I say thank you to them.” Mike currently lives in Harlingen with his wife Mary Beth and he manages the region’s Colonial Life insurance offices.
