Melvin Kirk Snoddy

August 23, 1955 ~ May 9, 2022 (age 66)


Melvin Kirk Snoddy, was born in Longview, Texas, on August 23, 1955 to the parentage of Clavis and Margaret Snoddy. Kirk attended Longview public schools and graduated from Longview High School. He attended Texas Southern University in Houston, TX.

At an early age he was baptized and united with Growing Valley Baptist Church. Later he became a member of Center Baptist Church. Eventually, he united with Shiloh Baptist Church where he sang with the male chorus and supported various church activities. Kirk was a dedicated worker and was well liked among his peers. He was employed with Lebus Co. until his health began to fail.

Kirk was amazingly generous and frequently purchased food for others from Bodacious BBQ and Catfish King. He liked to joke and kid around. Frequently, he would tell the wait staff not to allow anybody else to pay because their money was no good.

Kirk was a loving son, brother, nephew, uncle, and friend. He was preceded in death by his parents, Clavis & Margaret Snoddy; brother, Wayne Snoddy; sister, Roberta “Marie” Snoddy; aunts, (Bura D. Cain, Narva Snoddy); and uncle, (Belvin Snoddy, (Shirley).

Loving memories will be cherished by his nephew, (Bryan Snoddy (Hazel); nieces, Brandy Yeary (Michael), Brooke Perry (Porter); cousins, Marcus Alford (Margo), Michael Terrell (Jet), Melvin Douglas Snoddy (Gloria), Finis Snoddy, and Thomas Snoddy; stepmother, Dorris Adams; sister-in-law, Linda Snoddy; and numerous other relatives, church family and friends.

He will be missed dearly.
