Frank Edward Snow, age 74, of Lady Lake, Florida, passed away peacefully on May 2, 2015, surrounded by family at his home after a long battle with lung cancer. Frank was born April 18, 1941, in Somerville, Massachusetts, and lived most of his life in Massachusetts and New Hampshire before relocating to The Villages in Lady Lake, Florida.

Following an eight-year tour of duty in the Air Force as an air traffic controller, Frank became a civilian air traffic controller, initially in Boston and then with the Federal Aviation Administration in Nashua, New Hampshire. In 1981, the work he loved as air traffic controller ended, which contributed to his being a lifelong Democrat and supporter of national healthcare.

He started his own successful real estate company, and, after working briefly with a close friend as a typesetter, Frank returned to government service as an inspector with the U.S. Customs Service. During the mid-1980s, he also served as an elected New Hampshire State Representative in District 25.

Frank is survived by his teenage sweetheart and beloved wife of 54 years, Patricia H. Snow; three sons, Jeffrey (Karen), Todd  (Peggy), Danny and daughter, Pamela; six grandchildren, beloved Jessica, Nicholas, Lauren, Kelly, Maggie and Greta; his sister Eileen, brother Tommy and several nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents and sisters, Lolly and Judy. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.

A Celebration of Life service was held at Frank and Patricia’s home in The Villages on May 7, 2015. In lieu of flowers, memorial gifts in the memory of Frank may be sent to Cornerstone Hospice, 601 Casa Bella, The Villages, Lady Lake, FL 32162. Online condolences may be left at At a future date, Frank will be interred in the New Hampshire State Veterans Cemetery located in Boscawen, New Hampshire.
