In 1982, Phil began his journey as an entrepreneur with his brother Frank, starting an air conditioning company named Snyder Commercial Services; all things residential heating and cooling as well as commercial work with Luby's and Peter Piper Pizza's Valley wide.
Snyder Commercial Services went through many changes including a name change to Snyder Air Conditioning and all commercial work was discontinued and we became "Your Whole House Comfort Specialist" servicing the lower Rio Grande Valley.
In 2010, Phil was thinking more and more about retirement and the future of the company that he had built , (the partnership with his brother stopped in 2003) and he asked Hector and Dorinda to be his business partners.
Phil was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and on August 4, 2019, he closed his eyes on earth and woke up in Heaven; ten days before his 70th birthday.
Phil loved God, his family, his friends and his business. He loved fishing. Phil was just a loving man. He was our mentor, our friend, our “Boss.”
In January 2014 the Valley Morning Star did a Question & Answer write-up on Snyder Air Conditioning. One of the questions was: What is the main focus of your company? Phil’s response was: “Customer service. Our whole concept is client retention. We want to gain the trust of our clients and give them quality service and the best value for their money.”
Phil left us a great legacy. As we continue serving our great community and our wonderful clients, we will uphold the many things that he taught us and instilled in us. We will follow the guidelines that he laid out before us.
Phil was greatly loved and admired and we miss him greatly.
