Graveside service will be at Resthaven Memorial Park. In support of the health of our community, the seating is limited due to the social distancing requirement set by Governor Abbott.

David Snell was born on October 1, 1982, to Robert and Cindy Snell in Lubbock, Texas.  David attended school at St. Luke’s United Methodist Preschool, All-Saints Episcopal Elementary School, Trinity Christian, and graduated from Monterey High School in 2001.

His favorite classes at Monterey were economics and history.  David continued his education at Texas Tech University and Auburn University.  David was an astute investor.  He loved to watch sports, movies, and, most of all, travel the world.  In the last few years, David had traveled to Europe, Vietnam, India, and old Mexico.  His family and his niece and nephews were his pride and joy, and they delighted when he came to visit, which was often.  He was truly one of a kind friend and a very generous person who brought everyone together.

David was preceded in death by his grandparents, Jack and Doris Snell of Vernon, and John and Helen Shelton of Odell.

He is survived by his parents, Robert and Cindy Snell, sister, Ann Meyke of New Home, niece, Sydney Snell; and three nephews, Greyson Snell, Brayden Meyke, and Beau Meyke, a host of loving aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.



The family of David Snell has designated the South Plains Food Bank or the charity of your choice in lieu of flowers.

    Our hearts are with you in your loss. May you find great comfort in the memories. When we heard the news, I immediately remembered the only picture I have of him.

    My heart grieves for you, Brother. But remember, we have this promise:
    “For his anger is but for a moment,
    and his favor is for a lifetime.[a]
    Weeping may tarry for the night,
    but joy comes with the morning.”

  15. Dear Robert and Cindy,

    Our hearts are all broken over the loss of your precious David. A young man whose smile could light up a room and can’t remember ever seeing him without one. What a joy he was during his life of service and love for his family and it’s so neat that he was such a combination of the two of you. So many wonderful things to remember about this son who had a heart of gold and I know you are living through the unimaginable but hope that you will find comfort in the wonderful memories of a sweet young man who is gone too soon. I have both of you and your family in my thoughts and prayers. Your tribute to David was so touching and the choice of music honored his life in such a special way. I am so sad for everyone who knew and loved him. Blessings and love, dear friends….

  16. Dear Robert, Cindy, family and friends,

    We were saddened to hear about the passing of your precious son. Such a shock and such a void in your lives for sure.
