DANVILLE, NH: Mr. Charles W. "Charlie" Snow, of Danville, N.H., died suddenly on Tuesday, November 24, 2015 at the age of 78. He was the beloved husband of Doreen R. (Case) Snow for 56 years.

Born in Haverhill, Charles was the son of the late Charles E. and Ruth (Yearigle) Snow. He was raised and educated in Haverhill and was a graduate of Haverhill High School in 1955. Directly after high school, he enlisted in the United State Marine Corps.

Charles was a proud lifelong military man. After serving in the Marines for five years, he served in the United States Army and National Guard for over 26 years until his retirement in 1985. His duty stations included: Albany, Ga., Germany, Ft. Meade, Md., Ft Huachuca, Arizona; and two tours in Vietnam. Despite his lengthy service in the Army, Charles was always a Marine at heart.

Mr. Snow was a dedicated member of the Danville Baptist Church since he moved to Danville in 1971. He served as a Deacon and performed missionary work for the church at Rainbow Acres in Camp Verde, Ariz. for the past 15 years. His greatest joy was helping others. In addition to his work for the church, he was very active in the community, lending a hand wherever he could. He and his wife were surrogate grandparents to many children who affectionately referred to them as "Uncle Charlie" and "Grammy Snow." He will be sorely missed.

In addition to his wife, he is survived by two sons, Charles W. Snow, Jr. of Wappinger Falls, N.Y. and William C. Snow and his wife, Shannon of Virginia Beach, Va.; and one daughter, Cindy Snow of Danville, N.H. He was the brother of Nancy Tilden of Kingston, N.H. and the grandfather to Nathan, Margaux and Katelyn Snow.

Relatives and friends attended a Memorial Service on Saturday, November 28, 2015 at 11 a.m. in the Danville Baptist Church, 226 Main St., Danville, N.H. Interment was private. Donations in Charles’ name may be made to Rainbow Acres, 2120 Reservation Loop Rd. Camp Verde, AZ 86322. Online condolences may be sent to www.dcsfuneralhome.com.
