Kevin Snashall was a warm, gentle, fun loving person who was loved by everyone who knew him. St Elizabeth Hospice took great care of him in the last few days of his life and therefore this fund has been set up to remember a great man and at the same time support a great cause.
Kevin loved every minute of his short life and had many interests. He was a fantastic ballroom dancer who won many titles over the years including being the only person to be 7 times winner of the Basic & Standard Ballroom Trophy aswell as winner of the Latin Pierre Trophy many time over. During his teaching career he taught many, many people to dance and ended his career loving life at sea on Fred. Olsen's Black Watch Cruise Liner where he held dance classes for the passengers and also performed cabaret shows.
Another passion of his was Ipswich Town Football Club. A season ticket holder in the North Stand he never missed a game, come rain or shine, win or lose he would be there supporting the team he had followed since he was a young boy. Kevin still to this day watches over his team as his ashes were interned on the pitch. Even when he was at sea he still followed his football and would be on deck with his world radio listening to the match commentaries usually with a group of men around him and with world time differences he was even known to get up in the middle of the night to go on the internet to get the football scores and print them out for all the passengers to read! Not that he needed to do that really as he had a fantastic memory and could remember the scores of all the teams!
Kevin was an avid Showaddywaddy fan and there was not one member of his family or a single friend who had not been taken to one of their concerts! He travelled far and wide to various venues to watch their shows, whether they were appearing at a holiday park, open air concert, night club or even a private party Kevin would track them down and get tickets for everyone! He knew everything there was to know about the band and could probably have done their show for them he saw it so many times! He did actually meet the band members on a few occasions too which he loved!
There are so many things Kevin loved to do, he loved speedway, eating out (or in for that matter!), going on holiday, going to shows/concerts and most of all spending quality time with all his much loved family and friends.
He fitted so much into his short 42 years that it was almost as if he knew he hadn't got much time to do it all in.
We all miss Kevin very much, he was such a big part of everyone's life and his memory will live on forever.
