Michael Peter SnellNovember 9, 1968 – November 21, 2022

Michael was born in Walnut Creek, CA, to Peter and Lynda Snell. He and his brother Jeffrey had many fun adventures living in Moraga, CA.

Mike graduated from Oregon State University, where he became a loyal Beaver fan. He served as an intern at Monaco Coach Corporation during the summers of his college years. After college, he returned to San Francisco where he had a Student Travel business and established many lasting friendships.

Mike began his legacy in the RV Industry when he returned to Monaco. He spent nearly 3 decades building professional sales organizations and became a Titan in the industry. Whether at Monaco, Thor or Hymer, Mike’s colleagues knew him for his remarkable ability to grow businesses through his in-depth product knowledge, savvy approach to the RV market and the art of true salesmanship. Persevering through changing brands and challenging economies, Mike’s kind heart gave him a passion for customers. His sincerity and integrity turned customers into lifelong friends. His God given characteristic of loving all people and all walks of life, is one of the most admired and respected legacies that Mike leaves behind.

Mike loved his family and many friends, but above all he was a dedicated father. Michael Jr. and Brandon were his world. He was blessed to have a loving blended family with his fiancé Shalona and their kids Michael Jr., Brandon, Kaitlyn, and Emma. Also missing Mike are his parents, Peter & Lynda Snell, his brother Jeffery, sister in-law Becky, niece Emmy, nephew Tanner, and his aunt and uncle Judy and Kay Toolson.

The loss of Mike leaves an irreplaceable void in all our hearts. He was simply the best, and all of us lucky enough to call him family or a friend knows that nobody can ever replace him.

There will be a “Celebration of Life” at 2 p.m., Saturday, May 6 at Shadow Hills Country Club in Eugene, Ore. Anyone who knew and loved Mike is welcome.

May we all treasure and find comfort in the many memories Mike gave us during his short time on earth. We sure do miss him.
