Warren L. Snead

Died: Dec. 20, 2013

Warren L. Snead, age 91, of Greeneville, died Friday at Laughlin HealthCare Center.

Mr. Snead was born Oct. 15, 1922, in Roanoke, Va., and was the son of the late Walter and Lillian Snead.

He attended Jefferson High School in Roanoke, and enlisted in the U.S. Army in 1944, serving in the 463rd Parachute Field Artillery Battalion.

Mr. Snead was awarded the Purple Heart for injuries he sustained after parachuting into southern France with the 463rd in August 1944 as part of "Operation Dragoon."

After the war, he graduated from Roanoke College in 1948 and from Washington and Lee University School of Law in 1951.

He married Bettie Lee Scott, of Roanoke, in 1951, the beginning of a marriage of more than 50 years.

Mr. Snead worked for Adams Construction in Roanoke and Trammell Construction in Bristol before moving to Greeneville with Bob Smith Construction, where he later became president and owner.

He was a member of St. James Episcopal Church. He was on the Board of Trustees of Tusculum College and was also a member of the American Institute of Constructors.

He was a loving husband, father and friend, always putting the feelings of others ahead of his own.

Mr. Snead is survived by a son: Warren L. Snead Jr. and his wife Brenda; a daughter: Mary Lee Fennessy and her husband, Joseph; his grandchildren: Warren Snead III, Catherine Snead, Shannon Fennessy, Molly Fennessy, and Connor Fennessy; his sister: Neza Jolly; nieces and nephews: Susan Crisp and family, Doug Crisp and family, and Allison Jolly and family; a sister-in-law: Phyllis Miller; and a dear friend and caregiver: Betty Derry.

Mr. Snead was preceded in death by his devoted wife of 57 years, Bettie Lee Scott Snead.

The family will receive friends from 4:30-6 p.m. Sunday at Doughty-Stevens Funeral Home.

Funeral services will be conducted at 9 a.m. Monday at St. James Episcopal Church with the Rev. Carolyn Isley officiating.

Interment will follow in Andrew Johnson National Cemetery, with the Greene County Honor Guard and the Tennessee National Guard military honors team conducting a military graveside service.

Active pallbearers will include family and friends.

Honorary pallbearers will be Walter Mason, Charlie Tomer, Hans Andersen and Doug Crisp.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that memorial contributions be made to St. James Episcopal Church or Tusculum College.

"Bye, Bye Blackbird"
