Fr. J. Christopher Snow

Date de décès : 23 juillet 2016

Passed from the darkness of illness to God's Light on July 23, 2016, surrounded by his loving family in his 56th year after a heroic 24 year struggle with kidney failure and finally a seven year battle with leukemia, Fr. J. Christopher Snow. Predeceased by father John Edward Snow. Leaving to mourn with fond and loving memories his wife of 28 years, Bryn Heather Snow; sons Nicholas, Robert and daughter Helen; mother Gertrude; brother Robert (Abby); sister-in-law Jeannine (Tony); brother-in-law Marshall; niece Amelia; and a large circle of relatives and friends, especially jazz friends in Newfoundland and Milton, fellow clergy, and the loving and supportive members of the churches he served in Newfoundland and Milton. Chris graduated with a Bachelor of Arts and a Bachelor of Education from the University of Toronto, and a Master of Divinity from The Faculty of Divinity, Trinity College, Toronto. He was made a Deacon in June 1988 and a Priest in December 1988 (both in Catalina, NL.) Chris loved his family dearly and celebrated their achievements. He played in many jazz and concert bands in St. John's and Milton. In recent years music and his musical friends lifted his spirit time and again, allowing him to focus on joy and not on illness. Many thanks to his doctors and nurses over the years, especially the staff of the 6th Floor Oncology Unit at the Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital, who tended to him with great gentleness and compassion in his last days. Resting at McKersie Kocher Funeral Home in Milton, with visitation on Friday, July 29, 2016 from 2-4 pm and 7-9 pm. A Requiem Eucharist celebrating Chris' life will be held Saturday, July 30, 2016 at 11 am, followed by cremation and interment at a later date. Donations may be made to Grace Anglican Church in Milton, the Milton Concert Band, or a charity of one's choice.
