Longtime Corvallis resident Kenneth (Ken) Snodgrass passed away Tuesday, Dec. 29, 2020. Ken, the oldest son of Rachel and Donald Snodgrass, was born in Spokane, Washington on Feb. 19, 1946. He was raised in the Bay Area and graduated from Burlingame High School. He served in the National Guard during Vietnam.

Ken worked as a motorcycle policeman and was a SWAT officer for the city of Burlingame. He became a self employed fisherman in the Half Moon Bay area. He also worked in the security field.

Ken and his wife Joan were married on Sept. 7, 1974, and have two children, Jason Snodgrass and Carolyn Sparman. They moved to the Corvallis area in 1995. Ken had driven through the Bitterroot Valley and instantly knew that this was his home. A lifelong outdoors man and hunting enthusiast, Ken traveled to many destinations domestic and abroad for his hunting trips.

Ken is survived by his wife, Joan; son, Jason and daughter, Carolyn; six grandchildren, Shaylynn, Hailey, Emma, Brandon, Karen and Shannon; his brother, Kirk and sister-in-law, Bonnie; and brother-in-law, John; nieces and nephews, Aimee, Leslie, Etan, Aviva and Alicia; plus innumerable friends and extended family members.

Ken’s family and friends knew him to be a loving husband, a devoted family man, and a generous and loyal friend. He is greatly missed.
