Obituary

Philip R. Snover passed away at his home in Coupeville on January 1,2019. He was the youngest of 8 children born to George & Minnie Snover on Aug 27, 1931 in Hoguiam, Wa. He moved to Whidbey Island with his parents when he was 14 & attended Coupeville School where he met his future wife. His father passed away when Phil was 16 & he was forced to go to work to help support his mother. In 1950 he joined the Army & was stationed in Maryland. He returned to Coupeville in October 1952 to marry his high school sweetheart Lyla Libbey, before going to join the war in Korea. He was honorably discharged from the Army in 1959, when he & Lyla returned to Coupeville to raise their 4 children. He worked as a career firefighter at NAS Whidbey until his retirement in 1985.

Phil was a hard working man with many talents and worked at many different jobs, sometimes 2 or 3 at a time. Before and even after retirement he worked at various projects, including building & working a family owned restaurant, 4 houses, & owning operating an apple orchard. Even at the age of 80 he could outwork most men half his age.

Some of Phil’s favorite things to do included spending time with family, camping, and hunting; but as a member of the Whidbey Country Club, golfing was his passion.

He was preceded in death by his parents, 2 brothers, 5 sisters & his only son Roger Philip Snover. He is survived by his wife Lyla, daughters Gail, Debbie & Tonya, 7 grandchildren & 13 great grandchildren. He was always willing to help family & friends. He will forever be remembered as the strong, loving, caring, devoted man that he was.

Celebration of Life will be held Saturday, January 12th at 2pm at Nordic Lodge in Coupeville. Memorials may be made to Children’s Orthopedic Hospital in Seattle.
