SCOTT SNIDER

CCJ CO-FOUNDER | DIRECTOR (1992)

 

SNIDER, Scott of Tucson passed away on November 26, 2021.  Coach Snider helped form Club Cactus Juniors with Corey Morishita, Kellin Lovegren, and AJ Mallis.  He was the club's first Director in 1992, while also serving as a coach for the 18U teams until 1999.

 

He had a life of many accomplishments from being an Eagle Scout, dedicated teacher and school librarian, to volleyball coach of the year.  He touched many lives throughout his years and couldn't go anywhere without hearing, "Hey Coach!" from a former student, player, parent, or admirer of his. He was a quiet source of strength for us all and will be deeply missed. He is preceded in death by his father, Richard and brother, Roger. He is survived by his son, Wilson; daughter, Elise Morlan (Nick); granddaughter, Lena; mother, Jody; brother, Jeremiah (Jocelyn) and sisters, Kim Laber (Lance) and Robin Wilson (Roddey).

 

Memorials can be made to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

A graveside service for Scott will be held Thursday, December 9, 2021 at 10:30 AM at East Lawn Palms Cemetery, 5801 East Grant Road, Tucson, AZ 85712.   The family kindly asks that if you plan on attending the service that you wear a mask.
