Scott Snedeker
November 12, 1947- May 2, 2021

Scott was a lover of God and all people and left a portion of himself in everyone who knew him. Fiercely loyal he was brave, strong, hardworking and filled with adventure and kindness. He was generous in all areas with his time, skills and money and impacted lives wherever he went. What an amazing husband, father, grandfather, brother, shepherd, mentor, and friend.

As a cement mason and as a pastor he laid a good foundation and modeled Jesus daily in simplicity and authenticity. One of his outstanding qualities was his ability to see the treasure in each person and draw it out of them. All of our lives are richer because of him! His heart’s desire was always to know God and live a life filled with His love.

Thank you all who came by to encourage him and family as he was battling pancreatic cancer. All of the love and prayers extended were so precious. Diagnosed only five weeks before, he finished well at home with loved ones surrounding him and had little pain or suffering. We are grateful to hospice for their brief but meaningful help and to Dr Bruce Barker for his kindness.
