Passed away peacefully at the Toronto General Hospital in Toronto on Monday, October 31, 2022, with his family by his side. Maurice Sneep of Cobourg was in his 73rd year. Beloved husband of Mary Sneep (nee O’Dwyer). Dear father of Matthew Sneep (Diane), Eric Sneep (Shelby), Jeremy Sneep (Chantal). Grandfather of Nathan, Jack, Olivia, Emmett, London, Lyrah, Laiken and Delilah. Brother of Johanna and Elfreda (pre-deceased) and uncle of Sonja, Gregory and Michael. Remembered fondly by Mary’s children Mary Hayes (Geoff), Richard Hayes (Shelby) and grandchildren Brendan, Bridget, Euan, Esme, Orla and Teigue. Maurice was passionate about life and loved motorcycling, sailing, camping, reading, dancing and listening to music. He was a graphic artist with incredible artistic talent.

We are very thankful to have had Maurice in our life, he treated us like grandchildren. We will always remember all the great memories we made camping, sailing and going for drives in the Miata. Sending lots of love. Bridget & Brendan
Maurice was such a kind and interesting man. He was a great friend to us, and often had us in stitches. He was a wonderful husband to my mom, and their relationship was a delight to see. He is greatly missed and will always be in our thoughts.
