Obituary for Kenneth G. Snooks

Kenneth G. Snooks, 79, of Coffee Creek, Montana passed away November 9, 2019 at Valle Vista Healthcare in Lewistown after a courageous battle with Stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer. 

Kenny was born April 7, 1940, in Lewistown, Montana to Jean and George Snooks. He attended and graduated Denton Public School and then attended Northern Montana College in Havre, Montana. 

Kenny started working for Zuff Ronish when he was only in 8th grade. He then worked for his dad at Snook’s Texaco for 10 years, for Lyle Moncur’s fertilizer plant for 10 years, for Texaco Bulk plant for 22 years, and was a crop sprayer for 3 years. What he did the longest though was farming and ranching for 35 years; raising cattle, sheep and llamas. In 2003, he retired to Coffee Creek, Montana. 

In 1964, Kenny married Barbara Barber; they were together until 1995. 

Kenny loved ranching and flying his Piper Cub the best. He also enjoyed tending his animals, gardening, and planting trees. 

Kenny was preceded in death by his parents; and son, Shane. He is survived by his children, Erin Derks and Brandon Snooks; grandchildren, Corbin Derks and Noa Derks; great-granddaughter, Cashlynn; and siblings, Kay Osburnsen (Nick Kemp), Annapolis, MD, and Bonnie Snooks, Fort Worth, Texas.
