Lowell Indiana Clifford Snow

Clifford Snow and his wife are believed to be homicide victims in Lowell, Indiana

Mr. Snow was such a great man. I had a lot of great teachers but Mr. Snow was one of “us” yet a role model. I don’t know how he managed to do that but he connected with every single kid who ever had him as a teacher. A wonderful human being and a terrible tragedy.

Please share your thoughts and memories of Mr. Snow in the comments section.

    One of the best teachers I’ve ever had. My thoughts and prayers are with his family in their time of sorrow. A great man that will be missed by all his former students.

    He is one of my most influential teachers. Being a young lady in his power mechanics class, he made me feel powerful and confident. I don’t know what path I would have went down, without having him as my teacher. He gave me my strength during my weakest hours. He changed my life and I am forever thankful for that, and him. Rest in Peace!

    You did not have to have Mr Snow as a teacher to love and respect him. He always had a genuine concern and understanding for ALL the students he encountered. This is a horrible loss for his family and for ALL Morton Governors!!!! You will be missed, but your life lessons live on in all of us!!! RIP to one of the greatest teachers that taught more than just school work,,, he taught us lessons to last a lifetime,,,Mr. Cliff Snow

    Mr.Snow you were by far the biggest influence on me. I didnt need your credit so yea I was often stoned and drunk when coming bck from lunch. You would pick on me everyday and I would be sooo scared. At times I despised you for that. I mean the lawn mower engine you gave me still had grass hanging out of it! Then one day you threw a broom at me and told me to clean the back of your pickup. You didnt like me taking advantage of you. Then….as I climbed in the back I said why I’ll be. This crazy s.o.b got like 100 some empty strohs. After that we became good friends. I graduated got into the 597 fitters union and continued to excel moreso than the ones that went to college. You and Mr.Penzato reasurred me that no matter how big a dumbass I was and am that our region have alot of great opportunities for slackers like us! I once asked you why would you teach a bunch of snot nosed punks for 30k a year and you told me why bobby burnout even teachers are lazy. You are by far the best teacher I have ever had and your impact on me was truly profound. The last I seen you was in 01 and I had my keyes and tools still on and you and Penzat

    o asked what I made for the year. I regret that I never came through for breakfast. R.I.P and God Bless the family relatives and friends of ‘THE KING OF THE BLACKOAKIANS’

    Very sad to hear this. Mr snow was a great teacher. He had a way of connecting with all of his students. While he was teaching Auto Shop, he made a point of trying to teach life lessons and make sure that his students were prepared for life after high school.

    Mr. Snow cared about teaching life lessons to the kids alot of other teachers gave up on. Yes he wanted you to know the camshaft from the crankshaft, but he also wanted you to know what states were around you and how much money you could save in a life time by giving yourself haircuts as he demonstrated in class. He also gave you a heads up when he was in a bad mood by telling you if it was a two three or four finger day.

    As a female in Mr. Snow’s class he still treated everyone equally. I was pregnant while I was in his class and I will never forget when I was putting the lawn mow engine together, put the gas in it and for some stupid reason that I do not remember was carrying it over my head and completely dumped all the gas on me. Mr. snow laughed and kindly walked me to the office so someone could pick me up. I will never forget that incident. I surprisingly learned so much from that class that I still look back to this day on things I took with me when I left high school. Mr. snow really was one of the best teachers Morton had when I graduated in the class of 1997. Mr. and Mrs. Snow your memories will continue to carry on not only through Morton High School but through all the lives you have touched along the way. Hope your both resting peacefully.

    Mr. Snow was such a nice man! I cannot believe some monster would do this. He will always be remembered as a great man who was always friendly. He was a tough teacher, but really good. They don’t make teachers like him anymore. Rest in peace, Mr. Snow. 😦
