His was a life of service first to our Country while in the Navy and Coast Guard then to our state as a New York State Trooper. He died while doing what he loved, helping others. He is missed by those who knew him but especially by those who loved him.

I was thinking about Shawn "the man" today. He was certainly one of the best coworkers anyone could ever ask to work with. Shawn and I had many personal conversations about fatherhood, relationships, military and coast guard service, about collecting coins, and about having a great job that PAID us to do what we would do for free and that's helping people. Shawn Snow loved helping people period, but most of all he Loved his two sons, and his new love Penny (Late 90's). Shawn was certainly special to me, and I will always have a place in my heart for him.

Trooper Shawn W. Snow will never ever be forgotten.

I sit here trying to think of just the right thing to share in anticipation of observing the 11th anniversary of your death tomorrow. A quieter observance than in years past with just family and a few of your close friends. An opportunity to share stories about how your life made a difference in ours. You touched the lives of so many in the short time you were with us. I will forever be grateful that I was one of the lucky ones who called you brother.

As NYC Fleet Week 2017 comes to close, I remember back in '89 when you called me on the USCGC Hamilton (WHEC 715) to take your duty because you were still in Albany finish up your written and physical exams for NY State Police. I recall whining how big my feet got pounding the pavement on Pier 92 but you convinced me to take all your duties because things were going so well. You saw me off went the cutter went to GITMO in Aug '89 and helped Connie get settled and you were off for the October '89 NYSP class. I was so proud of you. You are my friend, my shipmate, my buddy and God I miss you everyday. Thank you for taking MY DUTIES over the holidays and letting be at home while we were on the Chase together. TJ MARSH

Trooper Shawn Snow was one of the best human beings I have ever known, and I do know a lot of good people, but Shawn was one of the best. He was truly a caring person and a loving father to his sons, as well as a loving man to his wife Penny.
I would like for people to know that Shawn did care about others very much, and he loved the Navy in which he served, and he love his boys, and his coin collection LOL, but he was crazy about Penny.
I know that Shawn's soul is now resting in Heaven forever.

There's not a day that goes by that I don't miss you shipmate and buddy. We were suppose to go fishing after you retired in 2010. Guess folks forgot that you also served in the Navy for 6 years out of Mayport but I didn't. I never will. Miss you much.
