Tim Snoddy, a top notch business valuation expert in Lexington, died Sunday in the Comair Lexington plane crash. Our thoughts and friendship go to his family, business associates and to our Lexington colleagues who have lost too many in this tragic accident.
"Timothy K. Snoddy of Lexington was a passenger on Comair flight 5191 and passed away this past Sunday, August 27. He was 51.
A Kentucky native originally from Greenup County, Mr. Snoddy was a 1972 Raceland High School and 1976 UK graduate.
Mr. Snoddy was a prominent local businessman. He was a CPA, forensic accountant, business valuator, and litigation consultant through his company, Snoddy Consulting, Inc. Mr. Snoddy's consulting practice, based in Lexington, had branch offices in North Carolina and Florida. His planned flight was to his office in Fort Lauderdale for three days of business meetings. He flew nearly weekly between offices and was a well-known frequent flyer with Delta and Comair.
Mr. Snoddy was active in the Central Kentucky business and social community. His reputation as an expert witness in financial affairs made him a highly sought-after ally for many attorneys. Attention to detail and an uncompromising work ethic were the hallmark of his practice. He was an active lifelong UK basketball and football supporter. On weekends he would often be found on the lake waterskiing or at the stable riding his horses. He was known as a warm, generous, and charismatic gentleman epitomizing the Kentucky spirit.
Mr. Snoddy is survived by his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Clinton Snoddy of Lexington (formerly Greenup), his sister Terrie Stuart of Louisville, his three children: Matthew Snoddy of Lexington, Jocelynn Morgan of Sierra Madre, California, and Joshua Snoddy of Catlettsburg, and by his three grandchildren.
Funeral arrangements are pending. Inquiries may be directed to the family spokesman, Matthew Snoddy, at 859-619-5045 or firstname.lastname@example.org."
