Lorenzo Max Snow, a lifelong resident of Hawthorne, passed away peacefully March 31 at his home with his nieces at his bed side.
He was born in April 9, 1937 to Lorenzo Marshburn and Ruby Naomi Snow in Jerome, Idaho.
He attended school in Jerome until his family made their home in Hawthorne in 1952. Max graduated from Mineral County High School in 1954.
After graduation, he walked to the base to get his first real job. They hired him as a draftsman. Previously, he tried: selling the Grit newspaper, shoes and other things .
He loved hunting, scouting, and going to the bowling alley to playing pinball with his brother-in-law, Bill Lane. He had a great love for his family which was many. We always had so much fun with Max on visits. He has missed his best friend, his dad. Grandpa and Max were always together.
He served as membership clerk in the Hawthorne Ward for The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter-day Saints. His favorite calling was being in the nursery. He worked with the little ones for 35 years. He loved going to the Care And Share for lunch. He loved his motorized chair, so he could keep his independence to do his own errands. He was so grateful to the people that took the time to help to help him reach things in the stores.
He was a great example of Christ-like love and service. He considered the people of Hawthorne, family. He loved being here. He was always positive and did his best to be kind, loving and helpful to all he met.
