Obituary of Sheldon Wayne Snow
Sheldon Wayne Snow, 72
It is with great sadness that we the family of Sheldon Snow, 72, announce his passing at Taigh Na Mara Nursing Home on Tuesday, January 18, 2022. Born in Glace Bay, N.S., he was the son of the late James Sr. and Annie (Clements) Snow.
Sheldon moved to Ontario when he was a young man. While in Ontario he worked in the Trucking Industry and as a Plumber’s Assistant for Kingston Penitentiary. After returning home to Cape Breton, he worked as a Miner with Devco until its closure, at which time he retired.
Sheldon had a huge heart and a great deal of love to give. He enjoyed family gatherings, a satisfying meal, and a great laugh. He was quick with a joke or a bit of sarcasm that always brought on a smile or a chuckle, and no matter who you were it lured you into his warmth and friendliness.
Sheldon is survived by two sons: Chris (Monic) Snow and Jeff Snow; two brothers: Arthur (Lorraine) Snow and Ken Snow; sister: Ellen MacLeod; and sister-in-law: Irene Snow; four grandchildren: Jessica Whysall-Snow, Rachel Snow, Zachary Snow and Finnegan Snow; as well as numerous friends and relatives.
Along with his parents, Sheldon was predeceased by a twin brother in infancy; brother, Jim Snow; brother-in-law, Charles MacLeod and sister-in-law, Johnna Snow.
