James Collier Snider, Jr.

Louisville - Jim, 74, lost his battle with pancreatic cancer on Sunday, May 13, 2018.

He was born in Shelbyville, Kentucky on January 15, 1944 to James (JC) and Margaret Snider - both deceased. Jim graduated from Atherton High School in 1962, received a BA degree from WKU in 1967. After working at Phillip Morris for 30+ years he retired in 1994 to live his life to the fullest. A gifted athlete and avid outdoorsman, Jim was an accomplished bowler, fast-pitch softball pitcher, golfer, hunter and fisherman. He was among the first to join Oldham County Country Club. Jim had a soft spot and affection for babies and young people. They brought him great joy and he spent many seasons as a little league baseball and football coach. He was a life-long UK and Dodgers fan.

He was also a devout member of Westport Road Baptist Church where he cultivated his faith.

Jim was a loving husband, father, brother, and grandfather and will be remembered as a loyal family man and true friend to all that were lucky to spend time with him. He had a quick whit, warm sense of humor and truly enjoyed teasing those he loved the most.

Jim is survived by his wife of 52 years, Susan; his son, Jay; daughter-in-law, Stacy; grandchildren JC and Katie, brother and sister-in-law Ron and Tamara; nieces, Irie and Linsey; nephew, Davin.

Memorial service will be at Westport Road Baptist Church on Friday, May 18, 2018 at 6:00 pm with visitation at the church from 3:00 to 6:00. The family would like to request, in lieu of flowers, to please consider a donation to Westport Road Baptist Church Impact Fund, 9705 Westport Road, Louisville, Kentucky 40241, or WHAS Crusade of Children.
