Hi. I have complete respect for law enforcement officers especially those that died in the line of duty. I didn’t personally know officer Snellenberger but heard a lot of greats things about him through his Daughter Jeanette. Jeannette was a friend of mine in the mid 80’s and we actually lost contact ever since. Would like to see how she and her family are doing. If anyone knows of her I would like to connect with her.
