William ‘Dick’ Snodgrass


William “Dick” Snodgrass, 77, of Richmond, Virginia, went home to be with his Lord on Friday, Jan. 14, 2022, surrounded by his family.

He was born Aug. 3, 1944, in Elkins, West Virginia, a son of the late Isabelle Snodgrass Gum, and grandson of the late William and Flora Snodgrass. He is survived by his loving wife of 54 years, Rosalie Snodgrass; his three children, Ric Snodgrass of Powhatan, Virginia, Michelle Snodgrass Greenlee and husband, Robert, of Moseley, Virginia, and Tara Snodgrass of Powhatan, Virginia; two step-grandchildren, Shannon Speight and husband, Kyle, of Albemarle, North Carolina, and Rob Greenlee Jr. and wife, Ashley, of Blowing Rock, North Carolina; four stepgreat-grandchildren, Rylie Speight, Kynlee Speight, Hayden Greenlee and Beckley Speight; and one brother, Edward “Speed” Gum Jr. and wife, Susan, of Elkins, West Virginia.

He was preceded in death by his sister, Beverly Phillips (2021) of Buckhannon, West Virginia.

Dick retired in 2009 after a successful career in retail management, including 25 years with GC Murphy Company. He was an active member of Cornerstone Assembly of God Church for 38 years. He loved people, was always willing to lend a hand and never met a stranger. He was a man of integrity and will be greatly missed.

A “Celebration of Life” service will be held at a later date.
