Chadwick Todd Snow
October 27, 1970 - January 23, 2022
Chadwick Todd Snow, age 51, left his home on this earth on Sunday, January 23, 2022, to return to his Heavenly Father. He fought a 5-year battle with multiple myeloma but never let it slow him down or change his love of serving people through his work, church callings and many civic contributions. He navigated his illness with grace and courage and continued to put his families' and friends' needs in front of his own until the end.
Chad was born in La Jara, Colorado on October 27, 1970, to Barbara and Fred Snow. Although Chad was raised on the "westside" (something he was extremely proud of) in Glendale, Arizona, Colorado is where they spent many summers with extended family. Chad attended Barcelona Elementary where his love of leadership started as Student Council President. He went on to attend Alhambra High School where he participated in speech and debate as well as drama.
After high school Chad attended a year of college before serving a 2-year mission in Bilbao, Spain for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. He loved serving the Lord and the people of Spain. His easygoing nature along with his strong testimony helped bring many people to the gospel he had dedicated his life to. His mission helped foster a love of the Spanish culture including soccer, running of the bulls, the history and architecture. He returned to Spain many times after his mission to visit people he baptized and friends he had made. Chad remained an active member of the Church where he served in many capacities including early morning seminary teacher, and most recently, Hispanic Public Affairs for the church.
After his mission he finished his schooling at Arizona State University where he received a degree in Spanish and Latino Studies. He went on to attend the Sandra Day O'Connor School of Law where he not only graduated but also made lifelong friends. On January 27, 1999, Chad became a proud father to Brady David Snow (age 23). In 2001, Chad and Rachael married and blended their families and Chad instantly welcomed her children Hunter (age 27) and Hannah (age 25) as his own. Later, they welcomed their two sons Andrew Jacob ("AJ", age 19) and Alex (age 15).
Chad started The Law Offices of Chad Snow in 2003 as a single attorney with a cell phone and a desk on loan from a local attorney. His firm has since evolved to become Snow, Carpio, & Weekly, with nine attorney, 34 employees, and multiple offices statewide. He has dedicated his career to representing thousands of injured workers, thus changing countless lives. Through his work, Chad also became very civic minded. He impacted generations of families through his commitment to empowering Arizonans through his legal work and community involvement.
Nothing in this world meant more to Chad than his family. He is survived by his wife, Rachael Ann Snow, his children Hunter Haught (Jackie), Hannah Myler (Spencer), Brady Snow (Ebbi), AJ, and Alex. He was a proud "Papi" to his four beautiful grandchildren Lucas, Rafa, Bostyn, and Asher (expected April 2022). Chad is also survived by his parents, Fred and Barbara Snow, siblings Kirk Snow (April Pepper), April Scelzo (Santino), Sean Andrew Snow, and Allyson Fiamengo (Vince). His extended family includes 16 nieces and nephews, many aunts, uncles and cousins that always thought of Chad as somewhat of a patriarch. He loved to gather the family together and made every family event more fun. He was quoted saying MANY times, "nobody parties like the Snows" and he lived by that motto up until his final days.
Chad will be remembered as a man of God who was hard working, dedicated, witty, generous and inclusive. Chad had a lifelong love of learning. He made friends easily and associated with people from all walks of life, faiths, etc. He always gave more than he took in every aspect of his life. Chad was the life of the party, making everyone feel welcomed and important. He was a person everyone gravitated to because they knew it would be a great time just being around him. Chad always had a smile and never paused to offer a hand to somebody in need. His generosity had no limit; whether you were family, a member of his congregation, a stranger, or a friend he hadn't spoken to in years, he was willing to help and did so often and many times without any acknowledgement.
A public service to honor the life of Chad will be held on Saturday, January 29th, 2022, at 11:00 am at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, Stake Building, at 22034 North 83rd Ave, Peoria, Arizona, 85382. A private burial will follow for immediate family only.
