Our Daddy, Husband, and Peepaw, Clyde H. Snavely Jr. of Roanoke, Va., has gone to his Heavenly home on Friday, June 26, 2020, and is rejoicing today in the presence of Jesus.
He was born on January 6, 1937, in Wythe County, Va., to the late Beulah Chrisley Snavely and Clyde Howard Snavely Sr. In addition to his parents, Clyde was preceded in death by two sisters, Violet S. Akers and Virginia S. Hodge.
Left with loving memories are his devoted wife of 65 years, Jeanette Snavely; two daughters and sons-in-law, Karen and Carlos Morales of Indian Trail, N.C., and Kim and Mike Maddox of Modesto, Calif.; five grandchildren, Kendall (Dylan) Du Colon of Florida, Jordan Maddox of Kansas, Taylor Maddox of California, Garrett Maddox of California, and Elena Morales of North Carolina; one great-granddaughter, Lilly Du Colon; one great-grandson on the way; and one special brother-in-law, Jack Akers of Virginia.
He was a devoted family man who loved his family with all his heart. Clyde will be most remembered for his true values and the life lessons he shared, along with his fun beach trips where he spent hours sunbathing. He was known for offering encouragement and wise words often through the long letters he loved to write. Clyde loved doing home improvements, gardening, manicuring his yard, grilling, toothpicks and making homemade ice cream. One of his greatest joys in life was looking spiffy in his suits.
A graduate of Jefferson Business College, he was a successful businessman for many years working as an accountant for several companies. Clyde loved his church, loved to teach and was a strong leader. He was a member of Parkway Church on the Mountain. In his lifetime, Clyde had many lasting friendships that he treasured deeply. He was a proud man of faith who touched many and will be greatly missed.
Family, friends, and others whose lives Clyde touched are invited to Oakey’s South Chapel on Brambleton Avenue in Roanoke from 12 noon until 2 p.m. on Tuesday, July 7, 2020, to reminisce. The Celebration of his Life will begin at 2 p.m. Following the celebration, there will be a private gathering for the family at his resting place.

....in the meantime Peepaw.....we’ll find you in the morning sun and when the night is new, we’ll be looking at the moon but we’ll be seeing you!

Jeanette, I am so sorry about the loss of your husband. I would love to attend the ceremony but with the virus and Ray's health I will only be able to be there in spirit. Know that I am praying for you and your family. Please take care and stay safe. Linda Ferguson

This is the most shocking and saddest news to me. Clyde and I worked for UCS, later BellSouth together and we became good friends over the years. I was wet behind my ears fresh out of college and he took me under his wings and taught me things to survive in the Corporate World which shape me to the man I am today. I will forever grateful to his guidance and friendship and will miss our lunches, (we used to have lunch three time a week and he always drove). God speed my friend and we shall meet again someday. We will catch up then and thank you for all your friendship!!

The first airplane flight I ever took was with Clyde. We flew out to Oklahoma City where our families were for a church conference. We had a stop over in Atlanta and I will never forget when I ordered a steak well done and he told me that we were farther south and a steak cooked there wouldn't be the same as I was used to, I took his advice and had it cooked medium. He was right it was cooked just like I liked it. That was 44 years ago I was only 16 , but that was a moment in time I will alway remember. Clyde and all the family will always have a special place in our hearts. Kenny Hawley and family
