OGDEN, Utah (AP) -- Former Ogden Mayor Scott Sneddon has died just months after being diagnosed with cancer. He was 65.
The death was confirmed today by Jane Stevens in Mayor Matthew Godfrey's office.
Sneddon was on the Ogden City Council from 1977 to 1989, when he was elected mayor. He served one four-year term and was the last mayor under the city administrator form of government.
Soon after he was elected to the council, Sneddon began to work to revive a relationship with Ogden's sister city: Hof, Germany. Sneddon wife says her husband's effective work earned him the Hof City Medal of Honor, the first foreigner to be given the award.
Sneddon graduated from Ogden High School. He earned a bachelor's degree from Weber State University and a master's degree from the University of Utah.
