In loving memory of my father, Donald Lee Smith, who passed away peacefully in his sleep on April 3rd, 2023. He was a devoted husband and loving father, He will be deeply missed by all who knew him.
Donald was born to Sidney and Lydia Smith on May 31, 1946. He was one of the youngest of 18.
One of the kindest and toughest souls on this planet, my father was a gentle, giving man who worked tirelessly to ensure that his family had everything they needed. He faced every challenge in life with admirable strength and courage.
Early in life, my father learned the importance of hard work and he instilled that same work ethic in me. He was always there, If I needed help with a project or just a shoulder to cry on. He was a man of strong faith and he taught me the importance of family, hard work and doing what is right.
