John Oscar Snodgrass

In the first hour of Thursday, March 28th, John Oscar Snodgrass, quietly passed away while holding the hand of his eldest daughter.  He had recently undergone surgery and had been fighting several chronic illnesses. 

 He is survived by his wife, Mavis Moore Snodgrass and three daughters, Lisa R.S. Kistler, Tina Marie Richards, and Gina Darlene Snodgrass.  

He was preceded in death by his parents Clive “Butch” Snodgrass and Helen Maloyed Snodgrass.  

John served his country in the Air Force during the Vietnam war.  He worked in sales for 16 years for US Plywood/Champion Building Products where he obtained many awards and accolades.  He then made his dream come true by starting his own company, Salvage and Building Materials in 1988 in Clinton, TN.  He married his high school sweetheart and they lived happily together for 63 years.  He liked nothing better than telling people about his beautiful wife.  His eyes would sparkle when he spoke of her.  He was a die-hard Tennessee Vols fan but graduated from ETSU.  He had many friends and will be remembered by how much he loved both his wife, his family and his company.

A visitation will be held on Friday, April 5, 2024 from 12:00 P.M. - 1:00 P.M. at Frost Funeral Home with a funeral service following at 1:00 P.M. with Rev. Deidra Crosby officiating.  Interment will follow in the Holston Conference Cemetery with full military honors rendered by the United States Air Force Honor Guard and the Marion VFW Post 4667.

Frost Funeral Home and Cremation Services is honored to be serving the Snodgrass family.
