Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: May 8, 1928
Ellsinore
Carter County
Missouri, USA
Death: Apr. 10, 1964
Tampa
Hillsborough County

Uncle Snid was the 7th of 9 children born to Scott and Delia Ann Box Alcorn who married on June 3, 1911.

His paternal grandparents were:
Lafayette Alcorn and Alice (Love) Alcorn

His maternal grandparents were:
Maston "Matthew" Wiley Box and
Margaret Elizabeth "Maggie" (Seats) Box

He joined the U.S. Armed Forces in 1948 and in 1964 was a T/SGT with the Air Force and stationed at MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, Florida.

Uncle Snid married Martha "Marti" Stankavich in February, 1951. They had no children.

In 1964, at 35 years of age, he passed away at MacDill Air Force Base Hospital following a massive heart attack. His body was transported from Florida to Springfield, IL for burial in Calvary Cemetery there. I remember attending his funeral, but at 11 years old I was unaware how tragic it was for my grandmother to be burying her young 35-year-old son.
