On 7-17-16, The Seattle Times published a short obituary in Section B on page 7. It reads: “We honor Austin for his full life,” wrote cousins. “Austin, creative force for so much good. My confident friend and brother,” sister Doris. “Uncle, mentor, curmudgeon and philosopher, investor, war time defender,” from cousins. Comrade in arms with Bertram Stone and Lionel Vessiere, AF navigator, pilot, sailor, race car driver, photographer, racehorse owner, NACA (NASA), engineer, entrepreneur, skier, runner, adventurous gourmand, and dBug Exchange (Apple Users Group) member from early on. Happy sailing, Dad!
A full-length obituary is available online. The family would still appreciate any comments or remembrances you would like to share as described in the first paragraph, above.

Curtis Snow was honored at Tahoma National Cemetery at 10:30 AM on June 26 with military honors by fellow Marines and Veterans of Foreign Wars. Friends from the Baloney group and dBug were there to pay respects (in a fairly jovial way of which Curtis would have approved.) Here’s a photo of the assembled group:
Please feel free to add remembrances of Curtis using the Comments feature below. These are excerpts from recent missives concerning Curtis:
“So even as a good chunk of my life is now gone, I can say without a doubt, my life was made better by knowing Curtis Snow. So Curtis, where ever you’re going, give ’em hell & remember, never let the bastards get you down.”
“He looked far too tired to stay with us. But still with us he is, to our good fortune . . . “
“I have advice notes from him that date from the last 15 years in my “helpful hints” file.”
