He took a very active part in all affairs for the welfare of the district, where he had resided for 60 years. He was a life member of the Wagga Show Committee to which he had been attached for 30 years. He was also a life member of the Wagga Base Hospital and the Wagga City Bowling Club, and was chairman of the Country Party Committee at Wagga for many years. Mr Snodgrass had been failing in his health for several months and had been six weeks in hospital. He is survived by his widow Florence Ann Snodgrass of Sunshine Avenue, Wagga. His three sisters and two brothers predeceased him. They were the late Mrs. J. H. Kendall, "Miart", The Rock; Mrs I. Borwon of Bondi; Mrs R.
