After inspiring and delighting countless family, friends, and patrons of the arts for 72 years, Norman Snow Jr. passed away on Nov. 28, 2022, surrounded by his family. He was preceded in death by his parents, Norman and Dorma Snow. He is survived by his wife, Mary-Joan; sons Daniel (Christina & daughter Ardemia) and John; and four sisters, Phyllis, Nellie, Edith, and Norma. Born March 29, 1950, in Little Rock, Ark., Norman's lifelong love of music and performance began while singing in the children's choir at Second Baptist Church, Little Rock, Ark. He graduated from North Little Rock High School and was accepted into the inaugural class of the Julliard Drama School and became a founding member of The Acting Company led by John Houseman, performing lead roles in the great plays of the theatre's classical cannon. The Acting Company performed in New York, touring in the USA and England. His tenor voice would also echo through several choirs: The St. Charles Borromeo Choir of North Hollywood, Calif., and Metropolitan Master Chorale of Los Angeles. Norman would also touch thousands more through film and television performances in such works as "The Europeans", "The Last Starfighter", "General Hospital", and "Star Trek: The Next Generation." Norman's artistry was unparalleled; however, it was his humanity, integrity, humility, and gentle kindness that were felt by all who met him, knew him, and loved him. Yes, my conscience, he did us great good. –Fluellen, Henry V
