Kirk Douglas Snaith

Kirk Douglas Snaith, beloved Christian husband, and father went home to be with the Lord on Thursday, November 18, 2021. He was 72 years old.

Kirk was born in Bedford, Pennsylvania, on July 16th, 1949, to Bob and Shirley Snaith. Kirk and his family moved to Santa Fe, then Albuquerque, Roswell, and Clovis, where Kirk graduated from high school. It was in Clovis, New Mexico as a child, that Kirk met his future wife, Debbie Walker. At the age of 18, Kirk was drafted into the Army and served in Vietnam. Approximately 10 years after returning, Kirk and Debbie’s paths crossed once again in Roswell. Soon they exchanged vows and became one, and they now shared the parenting of Kirk’s son Zach and Debbie’s sons Larry Chad and Christopher.

Kirk drove a concrete truck for Roswell Ready Mix for 30 years. Kirk enjoyed sports and was an avid Cowboys fan. He also loved playing the guitar. His passion for music led to many a romantic evening out listening and dancing to all kinds of music. Kirk was a tender-hearted soul who loved animals and the beauty of God’s creation. He was a person who was not embarrassed to cry.

Kirk leaves behind his beloved wife of 38 years, Debbie; sons: Zach, Larry Chad, and Christopher; two granddaughters: Jasmine and Stella, whom he adored; sister, Mary Gay Price and husband Mike; and many friends.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Bob and Shirley Snaith.
