James Robert Snitil entered Heaven's gates on June 30, 2022, surrounded by family. Devoted husband to Emilia of 40 years, he is survived in life and likeness by his children Eric (Katie), Nicole (Justin), Ryan (Joanna), and soon-to-be grandchild. Beloved son (late Robert & Catherine) and loving brother, he leaves behind his fur babies Bolt, Molly, and Toby.
Jim was diagnosed with glioblastoma in May of 2020, given a year to live. If you knew him, you knew whatever number his doctors gave him was the LEAST likely outcome. A fighter until the very end, Jim survived 25 months living on borrowed time that he had no intention of wasting. As a deeply caring husband and father, Jim leaves a lasting legacy of qualities and characteristics those around him not only cherished, but absorbed. Through this, pieces of him will linger on long after this life has come to an end. After all, it's times like this we learn to live again.
Per Jim's wishes, he will be remembered and celebrated in a private ceremony amongst family and friends.
