The CELEBRATION OF VAN'S LIFE was held at the Santa Lucia Farm on SUNDAY 18 APRIL, 2010.

More than 2,000 friends and family enjoyed a gorgeous day in the Santa Ynez Valley of California. Wonderful music, great food and an air parade of all the planes that Van flew with a missing man formation and taps played on Van's old harmonica. "Van Stories" were told all day and many didn't leave till dark. Van would have been proud to see that he was loved by so many.

Lindsey and the family would like to thank all who participated in the tribute to Van.



VAN SNOW was a man of passion. He was a world famous veterinarian, a loving father, a championship horseman, a fine Christian and an excellent pilot.

As an orthopedic vet, he operated on horses flown in from around the world and owned by Hollywood stars. He walked with kings, yet kept the common touch.

He was a leader and a teacher to his children, their friends and all in his midst.

He won rodeo belt buckles the size of dinner plates and often competed with son Cody in calf roping at rodeos all over the nation.

He was a man of great faith, seeing value in all of God's creatures, large and small.

He was an excellent aerobatic pilot with precision and speed. He was practicing his routine when he was killed in his F-1 Rocket.

He finally found the love of his life. His Fiance Lindsey was very supportive of all of his passions and will now keep his spirit alive on Santa Lucia Farm forever.

Van Snow left a great void in his clinic, on the ranch, at the airport and in the hearts of all who knew and loved him. Now it's up to us to try to fill that void and keep his legacy alive. No easy task, Van.

We'll miss you.
