Charles W. “Charlie” Snow
DANVILLE, NH: Charles W. “Charlie” Snow, 78, passed away suddenly on November 24, 2015 at Parkland Hospital in Derry, NH. He was the beloved husband of Doreen R. (Case) Snow for 56 years.
Born in Haverhill, Charles was the son of the late Charles E. and Ruth (Yearigle) Snow.
Raised and educated in Haverhill, he was a graduate of Haverhill High School, Class of 1955. Following his graduation he enlisted in the United States Marine Corps.
Charles was a proud lifelong military man. After serving in the Marines for five years, he served in the United States Army National Guard for over 26 years until his retirement in 1985. His duty stations included: Albany, GA; Germany; Ft. Meade, MD; Ft Huachuca, AZ; and two tours in Vietnam. Despite his lengthy service in the Army, Charles was always a Marine at heart.
He was a dedicated member of the Danville Baptist Church since moving to Danville in 1971. He served as a Deacon and performed missionary work for the church at Rainbow Acres in Camp Verde, AZ for the past 15 years. His greatest joy was helping others. In addition to his work for the church, he was very active in the community, lending a hand wherever he could. He and his wife were surrogate grandparents to many children who affectionately referred to them as “Uncle Charlie” and “Grammy Snow”. He will be sorely missed.
In addition to his wife, he is survived by two sons: Charles W. Snow, Jr. of Wappinger Falls, NY and William C. Snow and his wife Shannon of Virginia Beach, VA; daughter, Cindy Snow of Danville; sister, Nancy Tilden of Kingston, NH; and grandchildren, Nathan, Margaux and Katelyn Snow.
Relatives and friends are invited to attend a Memorial Service on Saturday, November 28, 2015, at 11:00 A.M. at the Danville Baptist Church, 226 Main St., Danville, NH. Donations in his name may be made to Rainbow Acres, 2120 Reservation Loop Rd., Camp Verde, AZ 86322.
