WHEN Titanic Belfast took over responsibility this year for the famous ship's 'little sister', the SS Nomadic, it was the happy culmination of a lifetime's dream for Roy Snowden.
As the first chairman of the Nomadic Preservation Society. he was a key figure in the campaign to save the last maritime link to the Titanic from the wreckers' yard and have it restored to its original glory in its home port.
Roy was already a great shipping enthusiast when a campaign was launched in 2005 to bring the Nomadic back to Belfast.
From Dunmurry, where he was a talented hockey, cricket and soccer player in his youth, his uncle had worked in the shipyard and took him down to see the launch of its last liner, the SS Canberra, in 1960.
Roy became a leading light in the World Ship Society in Northern Ireland and his contacts all over the globe were crucial in bringing the Nomadic home.
The White Star Line's last surviving ship was bought at auction by the Stormont government for £170,000 and painstakingly refitted at a cost of £7m.
Roy served as a board member and trustee of the Nomadic Charitable Trust which oversaw the project and his infectious enthusiasm persuaded many firms to supply materials and services free of charge.
Apart from his work with the Nomadic, Roy was a welcoming face when any cruise liner visited Belfast in recent years.
He also worked as general manager of Holmes Catering Services for two decades and was an animal lover.

Spokesman for the Nomadic Preservation Society, Roy Snowdon, said it had proved to be a mammoth task which should be completed today.
"We've been off-loading all the furniture from her days as a restaurant on the Seine for transfer to storage, and Harland and Wolff have kindly given us their complex free of charge," said Roy.
"It all belongs to the Department of Social Development but has been passed to the Nomadic Trust who will decide what to do with it when they next meet on November 17," said Roy.
Once fully cleared, the Nomadic will be off to Barnetts' Dock in Belfast to prepare her for further restoration.
Roy said: "No decision has been made on this yet but it should be made shortly.

Roy Snowden
As many of you will know, Roy, our Chairman also sits on the board of the Trust.He accepted the position of chairman only on a temporary basis and has decided that he must now step aside to allow someone else to take the post on a permanent basis.As expected, he has found it difficult to manage both positions, and of course, he is secretary of the World Ship Society here in NI.
We would like to thank him for his invaluable input and look forward to continue working together for the benefit of Nomadic.
Roy was one of the main people who organised many things after Nomadic came home to Belfast.He helped found the NPS and has championed the ship in many areas, i know he is an indespensible member of the Nomadic Charitable Trust and will always put the interests of the ship first.
Thanks for all the effort you have put into the NPS over this last 18 months Roy and Best of luck with everything.

Then we asked for more help to move the lifeboat, not a soul came forward...but for Roy Snowden of the NPS to arrange travel with Montgomarys and then with the over channel travel by a company in England!

Barnetts' dock is an excellent location for the vessel, organised by the NPS project manager, Roy Snowden with the Belfast Harbour Commissioners who have provided the facility free of charge, for which we are extremely grateful. Work is to begin on her here early in January.
