Larry K. Snell

75, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by his family October 21, 2020. He was born on July 4th, 1945 and is survived by his loving wife of 54 1/2 years, Linda (Hansen) Snell. Children, David (Charlotte) Snell of Lowell, and Douglas Snell of Los Angeles.  Grandchildren, Megan and Peyton Snell of Lowell. Sister Sherry (Bob) Hilditch, niece Claire Caroll, and Darla (Tom) Schild, Sister-in-law Arlene Snell. Preceded in death by his parents, Harrison and Lula Snell, brother Edwin Snell and niece Chelsea Hernandez.

Larry graduated from Lowell Senior High School in 1963. He went to South Bend College of Commerce and earned his degree in Accounting. He served in the US Army with the First Cavalry Division in Vietnam from 1966-67 as a demolition expert. After active duty he joined his father in the family business at Snell Chevrolet. Over time, Larry and Ed worked side by side in serving the Lowell community as co-owners of the dealership.

Larry had a love for antique cars, flintknapping and collecting arrowheads, hunting, fishing, and leather work which filled his life with joy. His passion for those hobbies spread to both his children, grandchildren, and anyone who wished to know. As an expert leather craftsman, he used his talents to make accessories for archery, muzzleloaders, and knife sheaths. His work and love for the art has traveled all over the world. Over the years he has collected countless awards for his antique cars and attended the James Dean run in Fairmont, IN for years. Though his accomplishments in life were many, he cherished spending time with his wife, sons, granddaughter and grandson, whom he loved with all his heart.
