Roger Stanton Snow, 72, of White Salmon, Wash., died July 22, 2013, at his home with partner, Michelle, by his side after a long battle with COPD.
He was born March 26, 1941, the first son of Vernon and Eva Snow in Minneapolis, Minn. They moved to The Dalles, Ore., when he was 2 years old. He graduated from Mosier High School in 1959 and was voted Best Dressed, Best Dancer and Student Body President. As a youth, he appeared on the Ted Mack Amateur Hour performing a tap dance.
He spent his life as a log truck driver starting in Tygh Valley, Ore., and later in the White Salmon area. In the mid-1970s, he tried to apply his “gift of gab” to selling real estate, but his love of the woods won out and he returned to logging. He loved hunting and fishing with his little dog Squich and passed those passions on to his two daughters, Angela and Rebecca.
He is survived by partner Michelle, daughter Angela (Chris) Deckker, and two granddaughters Aleyah and Jesara, Byron Bay, Australia, brothers Bill Snow and Cliff Creighton, and several nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death just this past February by daughter, Rebecca Snow.
A celebration of his life was July 28, at Gardner Funeral Home, 1270 Main St. in White Salmon.
