Published in Sept. 15, 2004, issue

Walter Snow died Jan. 7, 2004, in Overland Park, Kan.

Born in Greenfield, Mass., Walt came to Princeton in 1942 from Hotchkiss. He majored in mechanical engineering, then served in the Army from 1943-46, including a year in the Army Specialized Training Program at Syracuse and a tour in France and the Philippines. Upon graduation in 1948, he began a career first with Shell Oil, then in 1950 with the Marley Co., a cooling-process manufacturer in Kansas City, Mo., where he remained until retiring in 1986. He earned a master's in 1981 at Baker College.

His first wife, Constance, whom he married in 1950, died in 1989. They had a daughter, Jeanne, and a son, Paul. He then married Rosalea Shepard.

Walt was active in the Christ Episcopal Church choir, and enjoyed travel, classical music, and history.

Besides his wife, he leaves his two children; a stepson, Dr. Scott Shepard; two stepdaughters, Kim Berberian and Karmen Shepard; four granddaughters; two step-granddaughters; and a sister, Tammy Henderson. To them all, the class extends deep sympathy on their loss.
