Leford Snaith

On Sunday, March 3, 2024, Mr. Leford Snaith, beloved husband of Mrs. Gloria Snaith, of Calgary, Alberta passed away at the Peter Lougheed Hospital after a lengthy illness at the age of 81 years.

Leford was born on Tuesday, September 1, 1942 in the small district called White Chapel in Mocho, Clarendon, Jamaica to Elfreda Blackstock and Vivian Snaith.  He attended Brixton Hill Elementary School. Leford worked as a mason until 2019. He is not a talkative person, although Leford would engage you in long conversations that have no ending about his favorite political party. He always loved a game of Dominoes with family and friends. Leford is a loving, caring, and compassionate husband, and a good father, not only to his biological children.  He came to Canada and joined his wife Gloria in February, 2014.  

Besides his loving wife Gloria, Leford is survived by his children Elaine Snaith, Dwight Snaith, Lavern Snaith, Aldeen Snaith all of Jamiaca;  twenty grandchildren, eighteen great-grandchildren; siblings Winston Smith, Henry Fenton, Calvin Fenton, Aston Snaith, Donna Smith, Rachel Smith, June Snaith.  He is also survived by Eugenie Snaith of New Jersey, Beckie Snaith of New York, Marjorie, Michael, Horace, and numerous other relatives and friends.
