Matthew Snowball passed away at The Christ Hospital on Feb. 13 at the age of 41. He fought a “a hard and courageous battle over the last six months against an aggressive cancer,” according to his obituary.
Owner of Snowball Pest Control and Snowball Junk Removal, he worked hard for his employees and customers and built a well-known brand. He was passionate about his industry and was elected to president of the Kentucky Pest Management Association this past year. He was a member of the National Pest Management Association (NPMA), The Knights of Columbus, Saint Mary of the Assumption Parish and a handful of other professional organizations that he enjoyed. He was also very involved in his community and sponsored many youth teams for family and employees, 4H livestock and “any charity or good deed he was asked to,” per his family.
Per the obituary, Snowball “loved playing in his Monday night golf league. He loved fishing and playing outside with his three boys. He spent a lot of time at Lake Cumberland in the summers with his wife and kids. Snowball was a coach for a variety of his sons’ athletic teams and loved watching his boys grow and succeed at all their endeavors. He was blessed with some of the best family, friends and co-workers. He enjoyed being around people, making them laugh and navigating life with them.”
He is survived by his wife, Tiffany (Kremer) Snowball; sons Levi, Jonah and Micah Snowball; brothers Nick and Marc Snowball; sisters Angie (Jack) Ross and Shellie (Larry) Baker; parents, Diane Mendell and John Snowball; and many friends and extended family.
