SNOW, Brian

Cape Breton Post - - IN MEMORIAM -

It is with great sad­ness that we an­nounce the sud­den pass­ing of our beloved hus­band, fa­ther, brother and grand­fa­ther, Brian Roderick Snow. Born Au­gust 25, 1955, he was the son of the late Myrna and Earl Snow of North Sydney. He was a lov­ing and de­voted hus­band, fa­ther and grand­fa­ther and was al­ways there to lend a help­ing hand to his chil­dren both grown and those at home.

Brian was a solid rock and one who had built his life upon the solid rock, Christ Je­sus. He was a man of few words but those words usu­ally car­ried wis­dom and made a pos­i­tive im­pact. Brian had a strong faith and was a de­voted mem­ber of the Cape Bre­ton Chris­tian Fel­low­ship church and was ac­tive in var­i­ous ca­pac­i­ties over the years. He was a val­ued mem­ber of the men’s Fel­low­ship group. For many years prior to their clos­ing, Brian was the pro­duc­tion man­ager at High­land Fish­eries in Glace Bay. He also man­aged a com­mu­nity sup­plies store in Nu­navut and worked as a long haul trucker and courier driver.

Brian was an avid curler for many years and loved to golf, es­pe­cially with Alderdale where he played too many rounds to count, scor­ing a hole in one in 2013. He en­joyed go­ing to Scream­ing Ea­gles games when the op­por­tu­nity arose and he was a Toronto Maple Leafs fan at heart.

Brian is sur­vived by his lov­ing wife, Joan (Warr); his won­der­ful chil­dren, Tracey (Chris) Van­der Hey­den, Ot­tawa, Vic­to­ria, Hal­i­fax, Justin and Kris­ten, at home; his pre­cious grand­chil­dren, Ethan, Brooke and Wil­liam Van­der Hey­den. Also left to mourn are his broth­ers, Alan (Judy), North Sydney and David (Nancy), Monc­ton; spe­cial aunt, Lois Ma­cLeod, Donkin; the ex­tended Warr fam­ily, as well as a num­ber of nieces and neph­ews.

Be­sides his par­ents, he was pre­de­ceased by his mother and fa­ther-in-law, Bertha and Norman Warr.
