David Snively passed away unexpectedly on March 23, 2023 at the age of 87 in his easy chair surrounded by his many treasured collections. He looked forward to meeting his Creator in heaven where we know he will be surrounded by many loved ones. 

David was born in rural Carroll County, Ohio, where he graduated from Carrollton High School. After graduation he spent a couple of years in the Army and was deployed to Germany. He worked for 30 years at TRW which became Precision Castparts Corp. after he retired, he did quality control of jet engine parts at the manufacturing plant.

David met his wife, Maxine, in high school but her parents would not let them date because he was 7 years older.  It wasn’t until he looked her up in the 1990’s  that they were able to continue what they began in high school.  They enjoyed cruises to Greece and Alaska, and moved from Kentucky to Tennessee. 

David loved his horses, dogs and cats. David found many friends in Augusta, Ohio where he was a member of Herrington Bethel UMC. 

David was preceded in death by his parents, Daniel Snively and Gladys Hosack Snively and son, Scott David Snively.

David is survived by his wife, Maxine Bray Snively; one son, Daniel Travis Snively (Barbara) and three grandsons, Cody (Anna), Brad and Mark. 

It was David’s wish to be cremated.  A memorial service will be planned for a future date.
