John Christopher Snook

March 3, 1964 — December 22, 2022


John Christopher Snook, 58, of Mifflinburg entered into rest on Thursday, December 22, 2022 at his residence surrounded by family following a courageous battle with Glioblastoma.

Born on March 3, 1964 in Lewisburg, a son of Nancy (Seebold) Snook of Mifflinburg and the late Glenn Elwood Snook. On May 26, 1990, he married the former Kim (Bowersox) Snook, who survives.

John was a graduate of Mifflinburg High School class of 1982 and The Pennsylvania State University class of 1986 with an AG/Business Management Degree.

John was a hardworking farmer for 37 years, a job that he loved and enjoyed wholeheartedly. Earlier in life he worked at Snook's Mill, Farm Bureau, Agway, and Mifflinburg Farm Supply.

He was a past board member of the Farm Service Agency, past president of Merrill Linn Conservatory, served on the Board of Directors of Mifflinburg Farmers Exchange, member of Mifflinburg Young Farmers, member of Pennsylvania Farm Bureau, member of Mifflinburg Kiwanis Club, and a member of Winklebleck Rod and Gun Club.

He enjoyed local history, trains, hunting, attending antique farm equipment sales, and he loved people and was a great entertainer. John was a very positive person, and even following his diagnosis with cancer and the years that followed he never lost that positive attitude.
