Obituary

Daniel Roy Snow, 85, of Port Orange, passed away peacefully on August 26 at his home with his wife by his side after a valiant struggle with cancer. A native of Punxsutawney, PA, born on July 29, 1935 to Perry Leland and Bernice Rachel Snow. He has lived in this area since 1995, coming from Hunker, PA.

Daniel proudly served his country in the US Navy. He had worked as a Pharmaceutical Salesman, Property Manager, and was a retired Master Pipefitter. He also worked part-time as a ranger at Cypress Head Golf Course.

Dan was a much-loved father & husband, a hard worker, & loved to travel. He loved golf, the Steelers, college football, soccer, and especially our 2 cats, Bosco and Izzy. He used to love riding his Gold Wing motorcycle and his horse Sugar Babe. He had a special way with words, often creating his own words and phrases that made everyone laugh! He was the great pontificator of blessings at holiday dinners! The legacy of Dan’s kind spirit, passion for sports, love of reading, and zest for life will live on through his children and grandchildren.

Preceded in death by his son, Daniel D. Snow, his parents, his sisters Dorothy Seibert and Doris Jean Jones and his brother Donald L Snow.

He will also be remembered by his 11 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren, his brother, Dean Earl Snow and his wife Eloise, his daughter-in-law Natalie whose husband Daniel D. is deceased, aunt, N. Grace Shermer, cousin Barbara Shermer, and a niece, Meredith Frost.

    Remembering dad
    So many good memories come to mind.
    I remember driving to Assateague Island to camp on the beach with the ponies. Much fun was had spending that time together. Or the time I wrecked my bicycle and he surprised me with a new one cause he knew I loved to ride. Building our pole barn for our horses was not only bonding and educational but it was empowering as a young girl being taught carpentry and teamwork. Too many to post.
    I’m thankful that he was my dad because not only was I blessed his beautiful blue eyes, radiant smile and strong genes. I was taught good work ethics, that “can do” attitude, doing things right the first time, taking pride in my work and even putting things back where I found them.
    I am incredibly thankful that Carole was with him through all the years they shared, especially in the end. Her love, strength and courage are inspiring.
    She is a blessing to us all.
    Although I will always miss him,
    I know that he’s pain free and at peace with our Lord.
    He will forever be with me in spirit.
