CASTLE DALE - John C. Snow, age 73, passed away Sept. 1, 2002 at home surrounded by his family, after a courageous 12 and a half year battle with cancer. He was born April 23, 1929 in Castle Dale to Samuel Russell and Vera Lucille Hickman Snow. He married Ruby Mae Law, Sept. 2, 1950 in Las Vegas, later solemnized in the Manti LDS Temple, later divorced. He then married Etova Wilstead Morgan Sept. 4, 1976 in Elko, Nev.
John owned a tree farm in Castle Dale where he spent many pleasurable hours. As people would drive by, seeing his truck parked among the trees they would remark, "There's John Wayne." He enjoyed the outdoors, hunting and fishing with his family at their cabin at Joe's Valley. He managed Orchard Bowl and worked as a barber in Bountiful before coming to Castle Dale, where he worked as Millwright for UP&L. Helping those in need brought him much pleasure, expecting nothing in return for his kindness. He served in the U.S. Army during World War II and in the Marine Corps as an MP during the Korean War.
John is survived by his wife Etova of Castle Dale, children: Cherilyn Lauritzen of Florida, Dianne Snow of Ogden, John Kemp Snow of Orangeville, Russell Lee and Patti Snow of Kaysville, Wayne Alan Snow of North Salt Lake, 10 grandchildren, three great grandchildren, step children: Bret and Jodee Morgan of Kaysville, Pam and Doug Shepard of Santa Clara and Kevin Morgan of Salt Lake City and seven step grandchildren.
