Sunset, ME, and Cedar Key, FL. - Lawrence Willis Snowden passed away on Sunday, February 18, 2018, in Cedar Key, FL. He was born on December 21, 1942, to the late Sadie Mae (Small) Snowden and the late Martin Whitmore Snowden in Deer Isle, ME.
He is survived by his wife of 44 years, Allayne Lillian (Devereux) Snowden; daughter, Audrey Snowden, daughter-in-law, Moya Gibson and their sons, Jeremiah and Russell, of Holliston, MA; daughter, Beverly Williams and son-in-law, Christopher "Willie" Williams of Brewer, ME; brother, Norman Snowden and wife, Betty, of Gloucester, VA; brother, Roy Snowden and wife, Ginny, of Bena, VA; sister, Karen Cousins of Orland, ME; sister, Michelle Snowden of Bucksport, ME; mother-in-law, Jean Devereux of Penobscot, ME; and many beloved family members and friends.
Larry was predeceased by his uncle, John "Alfred" Small; father-in-law, Russell Devereux; and brother-in-law, Galen Cousins.
Larry graduated from Deer Isle High School, class of 1962. He was a lifelong pilot, boat captain, auto mechanic, boat mechanic, truck driver, school bus driver, lobsterman, and much more. Working with other area pilots, Larry was instrumental in paving the runway at the Town of Stonington Municipal Airport. When his friends at Penobscot Island Air came to Stonington to offer sightseeing flights, he enjoyed hosting meet-and-greets for visitors.
He was widely known for his impish sense of humor, and those who met him were touched by his generosity of spirit. He loved his grandchildren (both human and animal), his friends, and helping people. Larry truly loved his life. Most importantly, he was a good man.
In lieu of flowers, his family requests that donations be made to: Town of Stonington Municipal Airport Fund, 32 Main Street, P.O. Box 9, Stonington, ME 04681.
In late spring, there will be a graveside service at Hillside Cemetery in Sunset, ME, followed by a celebration of life gathering. Details will be advertised a few weeks prior in the Island Ad-Vantages. Arrangements are under the care of Bragdon-Kelley Funeral Home, Ellsworth, ME.
