On the morning of March 12, 2018, we lost our beloved son Robert Franklin “Bobby” Snodgrass, Jr.

Bobby was born on March 26, 1979 in Camden, SC to Robert F. “Frank” and Patricia Rowland “Pat” Snodgrass. He was a 1997 graduate of West Charlotte High School and worked for his father at Building Graphics Architecture in Charlotte, NC. He was a talented athlete, gifted thinker, and always willing to help others, whether visiting his grandparents or on the floor playing with his beloved nieces and nephews. Bobby was a kind and gentle soul who lost his way due to depression, but is now with the Lord.

He is survived by his parents, brothers Thomas Henry “Hank” Snodgrass” of Los Angeles and Clarence W. “Wit” Snodgrass (Elizabeth Eadie) of Alexandria, VA, his paternal grandmother Betty Carol (Snodgrass) Crowder of St. Albans, WV, and many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, and nephews.

A memorial service will be held at 3:00 pm on Sunday, March 18 at Living Savior Lutheran Church in Charlotte with Pastor Angela King Powell officiating. A Celebration of Life reception at the church will follow the service.

Bob, Bobby, Bob dawg. All names I knew him by. He was good friend. I rode to school with Bob most mornings of my Sophomore year to West Charlotte. Over the years Bob became a good, loyal, trusting friend. I can still remember hanging out at the BA (bowling alley) on the weekends, listening to new music I never thought I'd ever listen to on the way to school, or just goofing off in some of our classes. We had fun in those days. He introduced me to some really cool people. I respected Bob. He was like a brother, a best friend. He was tough but still smooth with the girls and quick with a joke. I learned a lot from him and he will truly be missed. To his family which I've met only a few times before his grunting bull dog came charging down the stairs,......I express my deepest regards to the loss of your son, brother, nephew, grandson......
I am truly sorry for your loss. This world needs more people like Bobby.

I am very sorry for your loss. May you find comfort in God's Word that promises He is close to the brokenhearted and will save those crushed in spirit. (Psalm 34:18)

I didn't know Bobby. I didn't know his family. I read his obituary in today's paper and somehow I felt moved to find a way to communicate my sorrow. I'm a part of an organization that was established in 1981 after another young man committed suicide in Ohio. He was gifted as well, and suffered from depression. After his suicide, his parents reached out to a psychologist named James Webb for help. Together, they started support groups for other parents who were grappling with raising gifted children. They wanted to find a way to reach others, teachers, practitioners, parents. They wanted to make a community of support for gifted individuals of all ages, because they knew that with "gifts" also come intense challenge (for more information, visit: www.sengifted.org).

Bobby and my son Nate Kirchberg were childhood best friends starting at Piedmont Middle School going to West Charlotte and then UNCC and beyond. I have so many happy memories of them two together they were like a comedy team! Lots of laughs and such good times too many to share and I am so glad I have all those memories! I am so thankful Nate had a best friend like Bobby he was one in a million who had the best heart and kindness a person can have he will be truly missed.

From little league to my wedding day and all in between, Bobby was like a brother to me. He was always there for me and my family anytime I needed him. He had a kind and generous heart and I loved him dearly. You will be missed my friend!

The Snodgrass family has done so much to make the world a better place, and Bobby was true to that family tradition. Bobby was a tireless worker on so many Wedgewood Youth Mission trips to Florida. It was so hot on those mission trips, but no one worked harder than Bobby. He had that grin on this face. I and others were sweating and tired and he was just working away, not complaining, with that grin on his face.

Vicky remembers teaching Bobby in Sunday School when he would be the only teenager that showed up. Bobby was curious, asked great questions, and always enjoyed their one-on-one discussions about how to interpret the Bible and be a Christian. Vicky says the most favorite Sunday School class she has taught was the one with only Bobby in it.

Bobby was a great friend to my wife and I. We will always remember and treasure all of the fun times we had together. This is a picture of a relaxing day at the pool. Our dog Jayda also especially loved seeing him! He will be truly missed.

Fun times tailgating at the Carolina Cup. It was a small world the day ( and hilarious) we discovered that my wife's family and Bobbys family shared the same tradition of going to the Carolina Cup in Camden SC.
