Robert “Bob” Snow, 86, of Sparta passed away August 30, 2019. Robert was born 2/1/33 to Harold and Edith (Ebert) Snow in Sparta, WI. He graduated from Sparta Senior High School in 1951. He received the Wisconsin State FFA degree in 1950 and the American FFA degree in 1954. Robert started farming in 1951 and never really retired. Chester White pigs were his first project, but dairy cows were his passion. Robert’s prized cow, Snow-n-Denises Dellia became a well-known Holstein in the dairy cattle world, thanks to Regancrest Farms. Robert played an active part in the lives of his nieces and nephews and their friends. Robert also liked to read westerns and play cards with his dairy buddies, as well as with family. He was a member of the Sparta United Methodist Church, Odd Fellows, and local, state, and national Holstein Associations.
