DOVER- John W. Snow, 49, died suddenly on March 22, at home. He was born in Northampton, MA, on November 25, 1967, the son of John W. Snow and Annette (Morse) Waldo. He was raised in West Dover and graduated from Brattleboro Union High School, class of 1986. He then attended TCI for automobile mechanics. He worked for the town of Newfane in the highway department.

Mr. Snow loved to hunt and work outdoors and was proud to be a fireman with 37 years of combined service between the West Dover and Wilmington fire departments. He was preceded in death by grandparents Viola Morse and Louis and Mildred Snow. He is survived by his parents John Snow Sr. and Annette (Morse) Waldo; aunts, uncles, cousins; and his wife of 19 years, Tammy (Boyd) Snow, and the apple of his eye, his daughter, Theresa V. Snow.

Now Mr. Snow is finally at rest. Hold him close in your heart as we do. The family wants the message to be one of encouragement to those struggling with depression. People never know when a kind word or a simple hug might change somebody’s day. Strive to be the encouraging difference in a person’s life. Be open and willing to discuss these difficult topics with family and the ones held dear. If you know someone going through a difficult time, encourage them to seek help (National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, call (800) 273-8255) and remind them that although their experience is individual, people are there to listen and support them in any way possible.

A celebration of his life will be held in early June.

Donations can be sent to Covey, Allen & Shea Funeral Home, PO Box 215, Wilmington, VT 05363.
