Earl Richard Snodgrass

Earl Richard Snodgrass, 90, of Russellville, Ala., and previously of Brundidge, Ala., was called home to be with his Lord on Friday, August 25, while in Helen Keller Hospital. A Celebration of Life will be held Sunday, September 3, at Praise Tabernacle Church, 12232 Hwy 43 South, Russellville, Ala. The Snodgrass family will receive friends from 1-2:00 p.m., with a memorial service directly following. Pastors Bobby Stancil & Sammy Taylor will be officiating.
