Joe Snow Memorial Bass Tournament
Paramedic Joe Snow was killed in the line of duty on May 28, 2006, attempting to rescue two young boys who had become missing while swimming in a rain swollen creek. During the rescue attempt, the boat that Joe and his partner Lt. Dustin Haas were in overturned, causing Joe to become entrapped underwater by the severe undertow, ultimately resulting in his death.
As fellow co-workers and friends, we are planning to host the 6th annual Joe Snow Memorial Bass Tournament on May 4, 2013, at Lick Creek boat ramp on Lake Barkley in Dover, Tennessee. The tournament is designed to pay respect to a fallen hero. Joe was employed with EMS for 9 years and was the leader of our Dive/Swift Water rescue teams. Not only was Joe an excellent and hard working paramedic for Montgomery County he also came to the assistance of surrounding counties as well. Joe was also a devoted and loving father to his two young sons, Michael and Matthew. Joe's love of his family and dedication to helping those in need was not only something that he was known for, but was an integral part of his character.
All proceeds from this event will go to a fund developed at F&M Bank for the benefit of Joe's two surviving young sons.
