Edward was born November 28, 1939, in Limon, Colorado, the son of the late Thomas Snow and Lena (Callahan) Snow. Edward was a cherished soul known for his kindness, friendliness, and gentle spirit.

A proud 1957 graduate of Duenweg High School, Edward carried the values of hard work and dedication throughout his life. His formative years on the family farm instilled in him a love for the land and the outdoors, a passion that remained with him until his final days.

Throughout his life, Edward’s kindheartedness touched many. His ability to greet everyone with a smile and extend a helping hand without hesitation made him a beloved figure and friend. Edward’s gentle approach to life, his appreciation for the simple pleasures, and his unwavering positive outlook left an indelible mark on all who knew him.
