Erik Andrew Snell, age 43, passed away at home on Sunday, January 28, 2018 with family by his side after a hard-fought battle with Cancer.  He was born in Weiser, Idaho on June 22, 1974, the son of Joe and Leanne Snell.  Erik’s little sister, Amy, was born in January 1978.
The pride of Erik’s life, his son Craig A. Snell, was born September 30, 1999.  Erik married his soulmate, JanNette Cotton November 7, 2008.  Along with her three daughters Kelsey, Marissa, and Miranda their family was complete.
Erik spent his younger years in Weiser, Idaho and later moved to Boise, Idaho where he graduated from Bishop Kelly High School in 1992. He later attended the University of Idaho.  He worked on his family farm in Wendell and Fairfield, Idaho before starting his dream job of being a River Outfitter on the Middle Fork of the Salmon River in Central Idaho. 
Erik was an avid outdoorsman who always enjoyed an adventure including: whitewater rafting, fishing, snowmobiling, skiing, and off-road trips in his side by side to name a few.  He enjoyed spending time in Bear, Idaho and all of the activities that happened there.  His priority was always his family that he loved dearly and he strived to create memories for them similar to those that he held close to him from his childhood.
