James F. Snow Jr., age 52, passed away on Tuesday June 23, 2020 at his Norwood, Massachusetts home. Born in Boston, Massachusetts on February 5, 1968, he was the son of the late James and Janice L. (Vanasse) Snow. He was raised in the Roslindale area of Boston and attended West Roxbury High School. Jimmy later settled in Walpole, Massachusetts and began his career working as a laborer in various warehouses. More recently, he moved to Norwood and took a position with Osprey Wireless in Westwood, working as an assembler. While Jimmy stayed busy with work, he always found time to tinker with and build many items. As a jack of all trades, he could fix anything and was always willing to lend a hand to anyone in need.
Throughout his life, Jimmy loved the classics, old cars, old movies, old shows, and old country music. He also enjoyed fishing, taking any opportunity to cast his line. Most of all, he was an all around great guy, who had a strong passion for good coffee.
