Home of 50 Years Lost to Fire


On Friday, August 30th, 2019 Jack Snead made his way to be with the lord.

He fought a good fight after a major surgery to extend his time with us, but unfortunately didn't make it. He was always a fighter. Strong. Brave. Kind. Loving. So many words to say.

We are in the process of planning a memorial service to honor and celebrate his life.

After the fire, we lost many of his contacts; if you know someone that knew Jack, please let them know the news. Please keep his future memorial service in mind.

I will post again when we have a solid date and location.

Continued prayers are asked for at this time for his loving family.

Thank you,

Lindsay (Jack's Granddaughter)

(From 2 years ago)
My grandparents, Jack Snead and Irene Snead, lost their home, clothes, personal items, pictures, and all of their keepsakes that they have ever owned last night to an electrical fire. They had no home owner's insurance. They have resided in the home for 50 years.  They are both over 80 and are trying to make since of where their life goes from here. My grandfather is a veteran once serving in Japan. He still works every day to bring home enough money for the 2 of them.  My grandmother has been a homemaker her entire life; her home has been the only place she has ever wanted to be.  They have brought me so much happiness over the years and the least I can do is try to see if a gofundme account could possibly raise them enough for new clothes, food, and most importantly a new/used home.  A used mobile home on the low end runs between 15,000-30,000. 

I can only hope and pray this account  we will be able to pull them through.  They mean the world to me, and I just want to know that they can be happy once again in the final years of their life. Please help in any way you can. Every contribution of any amount is a generous amount and can go towards the smallest of things such as food and new clothes, to the largest of things: a home to call their own once again.

k you to everyone for helping!
