Mount Vernon, Ohio
Michael B. “Snowman” Snow passed away on May 6, 2020 at his home. He was born on November 10, 1950 to the late Arthur D. Snow and Doris (Morrison) Snow.
Mike was a 1969 graduate of Mount Vernon High School and then enlisted and served his country in the US Navy sailing the World on the USS Shangri-La Aircraft Carrier where he crossed the equator. He loved fishing the Lakes of Minnesota where he went on family vacations. Mike worked for Cooper Energy Services, Rolls Royce and Siemens and retired in 2017 with 30 years of dedicated service. He loved Myrtle Beach, SC, the Kentucky Derby, casinos and buying scratch off lottery tickets where he was actually very successful.
