SNOW, TIM  
TIM SNOW Robert Adrian "Tim" Snow Jr., former president and chief development officer of Thomas & Mack Co. and Thomas & Mack Development Group and a 20-year resident of Las Vegas, passed away Sep. 11, 2016, after a short but courageous battle with cancer. Tim was born March 5, 1937, in Evanston, Ill., to Robert A. Snow Sr. and Dagmar M. Snow. He was a 1955 graduate of New Trier Township High School in Winnetka, Ill., and went on to graduate from the University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana in 1959. Tim immediately began building his resume in the commercial real estate industry with stops in Chicago and Dallas, before settling in Los Angeles for more than 20 years in executive positions, developing large-scale land use projects throughout southern California and Nevada. He joined the Thomas & Mack Company in 1994 just as they were transitioning from a banking and landholding concern into a multi-faceted development company. Over the next 13 years, Tim managed the real estate development operation of the company and orchestrated the construction, financing and leasing of over 3.2 million square feet in 78 office, industrial, retail and hotel properties. As president of the Thomas & Mack Development Group, Tim directed the development of 1,100 acres of land including the McCarran Center, Las Vegas Digital Exchange Campus, Las Vegas Tech Center II and Northern Beltway Industrial Center. After retiring from Thomas & Mack in 2006, Tim opened his own consultancy becoming a key development advisor to UNLV, Kemper Insurance/Unitrin, City of Henderson, Delta Pacific Land Co., and the Las Vegas Art Museum. Like many of his generation, Tim's career spanned a low-tech world of 12-key calculators and long-hand spreadsheets to a fully digital age of smartphones and tablets. Yet, colleagues and business partners will long remember Tim's penchant for drafting budgets and million-dollar project contracts on his always present yellow legal pad and old-school wooden pencil. His high standards were only matched by his equally high ethics. His word was his bond. Throughout his career, despite the business world's move towards more lawyers and legal paperwork, Tim still preferred to look someone in the eye and seal a deal with a handshake. In 2009, in recognition for his achievements and giving back to his industry, he received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Association of Industrial and Office Properties (NAIOP), of which he was president in 1997. He was active in the community, serving on the UNLV School of Business Executive Advisory Board and as a board member for the Las Vegas Art Museum, among others. Tim spent his career and the vast majority of life working under the mantra, "All In." Whatever task he set out to accomplish, Tim gave all he had and expected those around him to tackle work and play with the same vigor. He was an avid sailor, loved to golf and ski and found as much excitement in fierce game of backgammon as he did in a "winner-takes-all" game of volleyball in his pool. Family, friends and business associates will always have fond memories of afternoons and evenings at "Camp Snow" where business and sports worked seamlessly with cookouts and great wine. He is survived by his wife, of 36 years, Jane M. Snow; their daughter, Elizabeth V. Snow of Brooklyn, N.Y.; two daughters from a previous marriage, Katherine E. "Kitty" Curran of Chapel Hill, N.C., and Jennifer L. Snow of Brooklyn; two sond-in-law, Joel Curran and Stephen Para; and two granddaughters, Kelsey Curran and Addison Curran. He is also survived by his sister, Jill E. Cassidy; a niece, Keely Cassidy Valdma; and great-niece, Kyrii Valdma, all of Orange County, Calif. Services were previously held. The family wishes to thank Mountain View Hospital, Nathan Adelson Hospice and Father Rick O'Brien for their outstanding care and comfort provided to Tim in his final days.

TATE Jr., JAMES  
JAMES TATE JR. James Sherman Tate Jr., lovingly known as "Jim," of Las Vegas, passed away Sept. 13, 2016. He was born on the south side of Chicago, to the union of James and Helen Tate. While the family was poor, education in the Tate household was always a priority. Jim received his elementary education through the public school system of Hartford, Conn., and his high school education through the Chicago Public School system. He received his B.S. and M.S. degrees from the University of Illinois and his medical degree from Howard University. Jim's official birth and death records lists his middle name as "Sherman." There are those however who believe his middle names were "Freedom Fighter, Activist, and Champion of the Underdog." Jim was truly a "Drum Major For Justice." Jim leaves to cherish his memory, his most cherished and prized accomplishment, his son, Attorney Richard Tate; the three "lights of his life," his grandchildren, Sanaa Tate, Cheveyo (Kwame) Tate and Tedros (Kwesi) Tate; one sister, Rena Tate Bowman; two nieces, Dominique Vining (Isaac) and Dionne Strickland (Keith); one great-niece, Alexandra Bowman; and a host of friends, personal and professional associates. We believe Jim would have wanted to be remembered as a warrior for justice. He has left us now but the life force that was his now is passed on to those of us who remain. His struggle for peace, justice and equality for all must now be carried on as Jim joins such warriors as his father, James Sr., Malcolm X, WEB DuBois, Paul Robeson and so many others. LaLucha Continua (Freedom is a Constant Struggle) Services were previously held at Palm Mortuary, 1325 N. Main St.
