Wesley Robert Snow

January 24, 1933 ~ November 6, 2020

Our beloved husband, father, grandpa, and great-grandpa left this world on November 6, 2020, due to cancer. He was born on January 24, 1933, to Wesley (Shine) and Beth Gibson Snow in Provo, Utah.

He met our mother, Sandra Merrell, while they were both employed at Geneva Steel. They were married in the summer of 1958. Mom says their greatest accomplishment together was us, their children, Jeff, Dan, Casey, and Pam.

They soon settled down in Sandy Utah, where he began a 30-year career with Souvall Brothers, which eventually merged into Smith’s Food & Drug King. Later, he started his own import company, Promo Industries. Dad loved to work; officially…he never really retired.

Some facts about our dad:

• He was a graduate of Provo High in 1951.
• He joined the Air Force and proudly served for 4 years.
• He loved to ski “the greatest snow on earth”, mainly at Alta.
• He would try most any outdoor activity; fishing, motocross, mountain biking, and rollerblading to name a few. Dad always enjoyed a
challenge!
• He stayed fit, very fit. If he wasn’t outdoors, there was a good chance he was at the gym. He watched what he ate, sometimes driving us crazy
with his comments on salts, sugars, and fats. He did what he could to stay healthy, even though you would catch him enjoying a bowl of ice
cream late at night.
• He loved to golf! Dad played well and played often. He recorded two hole-in-ones which were miraculously on the same hole; Riverside’s #11.
He was a lifer at both Alpine and Hidden Valley Country Club where he and his golfing buddies would make a few bets before the round then
settle up at the 19th hole over an ice-cold beer.
• He took pride in doing his own yard work and chatting with the neighbors as they passed by.
• He was fortunate to have many great friends whom he loved and cherished and they loved him as well.

Grandpa loved all of his grandkids. They were blessed to have him around. Every one of them can recall many awesome memories with him and have stories of their own.

Wes is survived by his wife Sandra, sons Jeffrey (Traci), Danny, Casey (Lisa), and daughter Pamela (Tren) Giles, and his many grand and great-grandkids. He is also survived by his three sisters, Lillian Hunsaker, Louise (James) Nelson, and Dixie (David) Adelman. He is preceded in death by his father and mother and his many pets. We know he’ll be happy to hold his best little buddy, Gus again.

We will have stories, laughter, and a few tears to properly celebrate his life at a later date due to COVID. In lieu of flowers please donate to a charity of your choice.

We miss and love you forever dad.

Wes was one of the “good old gang” on Apple Hill. He was loved by all on our street having frequent conversations with many in his front yard. He was a caring person for all of his friends and will be missed by everyone who had the pleasure of knowing him. My wife, Norma, and I express our deepest sympathy to Sandy who we love as well.

Miss you Wes, and also miss the whole hilarious and endlessly fun family that you brought to the world. I can't believe I haven't been over for dinner for the last 15-20 years. I miss your warm and direct way of keeping things moving. You were never one to bore the world with long stories or sentimentality so I'll keep this short. I love you!

Sandra and family, Re Nae and I are very sorry to hear about Wes's passing away. We are very happy that we did get to visit with him and with your families over at Casey's house. I really enjoyed talking to him about his retailing days at Smith's. He had some great stories. I wish I would have known that he was in the Air Force. Would have loved hearing those stories as well. Rest In Peace Wesley
