Joseph Kevin Snell, affectionately known to some as Joe, but to close family as Joby, was born the third son of Jimmy Snell and Joanna Verdun Snell on November 2, 1963. Both parents preceded him in death.

He attended St. Austin's Catholic School grades K-8, then Anderson High School. During these early years, Joby developed academic and extracurricular interests. He was also active in the youth group at his parish, Holy Cross Catholic Church. After high school graduation, Joe attended Lamar University in Beaumont, Texas where he majored in Business Administration, and from there, went on to complete a Master's degree in Management from Regis University in Virginia.

After a brief time of employment in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Joby secured a position as a student recruiter at Seattle Pacific University in Seattle, Washington. Ten successful years later, Joe became the Director of Multi-ethnic Programs at Azusa Pacific University in Los Angeles, California.

Joby's untimely and sudden death was on August 5, 2009. He leaves three stunned siblings to mourn his passing: Gregory (Amy) of Houston, Texas, Gerald of Chicago, Illinois and Julie of Beaumont, Texas. He also leaves a host of cousins, aunts, uncles, one niece and two nephews, and many close friends.

His gifts of infectious laughter and personal character and integrity won for him the friendship and admiration of many people from disparate backgrounds and cultures. He brought those gifts on an unforgettable tour of China when he was employed at Seattle Pacific University. Joe also had a love for academics and was a voracious reader. When he was not working, he could be found in Starbucks enjoying coffee and reading his latest novel. His irreplaceable spirit will be sorely missed by all who happened his way.
