June 1935- July 27, 2013
With deep sadness we mourn the death of Sandy Snihor. He was a devoted husband, father and grandfather.
Sandy was born at Wandering River, Alberta and grew up at the family farm near Endeavor, Saskatchewan.
When he was eighteen he moved to B.C. to work for Wilder Brothers Logging. This was where he learned how to operate heavy equipment and build roads. In 1961 he married Lorraine (Lorri) Goalder.
Sandy joined Operating Engineers in 1963 and worked on road construction, pipeline projects and dam building which gave him a chance to travel extensively throughout B.C. In 1972 he took over and ran the Chevron Service station in Radium until 1993. Shortly thereafter he was employed by John Wolfe Construction, operating heavy equipment until he retired at the age of 75.
Sandy loved the outdoors, whether it was fishing, hunting or visiting his favorite spots in the Kootenay Valley. He resided in Radium.
He left behind his wife of 52 years, Lorraine (Lorri), a daughter, Misti and a granddaughter, McKaylynn. He has numerous nieces and nephews and one sister Alice ( John Prokop). Sandy was predeceased by his parents, brothers Mike and Willie, as well as his sister Doris.
It is in keeping with Sandy’s wishes that no funeral or public memorial service will be held.
