Robert Francis Snakard, San Francisco, CA died on December 5th, 2020, at age 26, after struggling with mental illness in the last years of his life. Robert was a brilliant, generous, and kind person who loved to teach others. He was a loving and fun son, brother and friend.
Robert Francis Snakard was born in Houston, TX on November 10th, 1994. He attended Roosevelt Alexander Elementary School in Katy, TX for Kindergarten through 3rd Grade. He lived in Doha, Qatar where he attended The American School of Doha for grades 4 – 8. He went to and graduated from Broad Run High School in Ashburn, Virginia and then graduated with a BS degree in Computer Engineering from The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champagne.
