October 08, 1938 ‒ August 20, 2016

Fredericktown, Ohio

Carroll James Snow, 77, of Fredericktown, passed away surrounded by family Saturday, Aug. 20, at Select Specialty Hospital in Columbus.

He was born on Oct. 8, 1938, in Mount Vernon to the late Howard and Cleo Snow. He married the love of his life Lorilla Robinson Oct. 18, 1959, and they shared 47 years of marriage before her death in May 2007.

A 1956 graduate of Chester-Franklin High School, Chesterville, Carroll served in the U.S. Army and was stationed in Munich, Germany, for three years. He was employed for 29 years at PPG Industries in Crestline before retiring in 2000.

A man of integrity and honesty, Carroll always gave his best to any task. He was a member of the Fredericktown United Methodist Church where he sang in the church choir for many years and had volunteered in the sound booth. He was a 62-year member of Wayne Grange; 56-year member of the Chester Lodge No. 238, Ohio Grand Lodge of Free and Accepted Masons; 47-year member of the Clinton Chapter No. 20, Grand Chapter Royal Arch Masons; and 50-year member of the Ann Hill Chapter No. 81, Ohio Eastern Star.

Carroll loved being with family and supporting the activities of his children and grandchildren. He was a faithful sender of birthday and holiday cards and loved to sing and listen to music, especially hymns and old gospel songs.

He will be dearly missed by his daughter Laurie Sidle and her husband Dale, and their children Jacob and Laurel of Shreve; son David and his wife Jennifer, and their children Chelsea and Miranda of Fredericktown; brother Harold “Hank” and his wife Barbara Snow, Mount Vernon; and nieces and nephews.

In addition to his wife and parents, he was preceded in death by a sister Terry Steck.

Family and friends may call on Tuesday from 5 to 8 p.m. at the Fredericktown United Methodist Church where a Masonic service will begin at 8 p.m. A funeral service will be held on Wednesday at 10 a.m. at the church with Rev. Gary Campbell officiating. Burial with military honors provided by the Knox County Joint Veterans Council will follow in Maple Grove Cemetery, Chesterville.
