Richard had the biggest heart I have ever known. As kids we were together all the time and that continued into our adulthood. He served our country for over 20 years and retired here in Las Vegas for 5 years before moving to Idaho. He was injured in Operation Desert Storm as he was a member of the 2nd FA "Hell on Wheels" and earned many awards from the military during his stint. Going through his apartment after his sudden death, I was touched to find that he gave every single month for years to Wounded Warriors fund, ASPCA and St. Jude's. We will miss his infectious laugh and the impish look he had when he was about to do something totally off the wall. Rest in peace little brother.  submitted by Janice Snow Mathews

I remember Richard at Morningside Elementary and totally lost track of him.  He did have a great laugh!!  It's

nice to know what a nice heart he had and that he gave so much to others.  I thank him for serving this great 

country for 20 years.  Rest in Peace Richard.

Would like to give some recognition to Richard Snow for all his was and did. Remember him in elementary more than later on, great laugh, and always on the go. Friendship is a lasting and enduring pheonomena that manifest itself at random times bringing back memories that enrich our lives. Thankful for friends, far and near.

I was sad to hear of Richard's passing.  Our family lost contact and news of him over the years.  I am happy to read nice things and memories about Richard.  He and his family lived next door to us and I was good friends as children with his sister Janice.  

I can tell you that Richard was a HELLION as a kid. He spent a lot of time at our house looking for things to do that usually created trouble. My mother was always a good sport while Richard would be running in an out of our house, working on putting together his next mischief.  

I smile but shake my head when I think of him and regret not having followed his family more closely over the years.

Richard and I were in the same 1st grade class, so, I guess I've known him since close to the beginning. We had 3 Richards in our class and they were asked to choose names, Richard, Rick and Ricky.... and they were forever known as such. He was a rambunctious guy as a kid. He was funny and ready for anything. Sorry to hear of his passing. Jim, I don't know if you read these. So sorry for your loss and, I'm sure you are proud of his service for our country and freedom.
