Snake was a perfect gentleman. He greeted everyone with a smile and always had something pleasant to say. He will be missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing him.

I just met this awesome man in Pigeon Forge at the fall Rod Run and sold him a hot rod. First time in my life I took an envelope full of money and handed over the keys without counting the money. The minute I met him and his wife and son I made friends for life. He has called me several times since just to check on me and he was the one sick. I would love to have met him many years ago as it would have been a beautiful friendship.
