SPC Lewis M. Snow

SPC Lewis M. Snow was born on January 27, 1948 in Butler, Pa. He passed away on October 4, 2009 in a Temple, Texas hospital, at the age of 61.

SPC Snow served his country in the United States Army in Vietnam. His many decorations include the Bronze Star.

Interment services were held on October 9, 2009 at the Central Texas State Veterans Cemetery at Killeen, Texas.

Patriot Guard Riders gathered at the cemetery on a blustery, gray and cold day to honor this combat hero. A line of American flags was formed to welcome the family and friends. During the ceremony, the flag line enveloped the internment shelter.

The Riders provided the honor guard to render military honors to SPC Snow. One Rider played taps and two other Riders folded the American flag and presented it to the family.

Left to cherish his memory are two sons, a daughter, a sister, his father, eight grandchildren and numerous other family and friends.
