Our beloved Lee Colwell Snell passed away peacefully on November 14, 2018. He was born on May 9, 1940, in Cowley, Wyoming, a place he never stopped loving. After an LDS mission to New Zealand, he married the love of his life, Nancy (Mehr) on July 19, 1963, in the Los Angeles LDS Temple.
He graduated with an English degree from Brigham Young University, and went on to share his love of writing and literature as a junior high and high school teacher for over 30 years, even returning to New Zealand to teach. He loved people and life, and embraced both fully, sharing his love of music, poetry, literature, camping, and fishing with all of his loved ones. People loved him and felt his love, and we cherish our memories of him. He loved his faith and served in many capacities, most memorably as the choir director.
He is survived by his wife, Nancy (Mehr), seven children: Lisa (Cameron) Fowler, Pete (Amanda), Nate (Buffy), Sara (Jon) Dickey, Carrie (Russell) Meeks, Emily (Cory) Hampton, and Joseph (Melanie); his siblings: Linda Hassinger, Bill Snell, Beth (Ken) Noack, and Ned (Barbara) Snell; and 29 dearly loved grandchildren. He is preceded in death by his parents, Jay and Freda (Colwell) Snell, and his brother Jay C. Snell.
