  1. Renee, JoLyn and family: Dr. Smith lived his life well and I know you are proud. He was a model of a solid Christian man, pillar of Belmont Nazarene Church and friend of my family. We have known him since the beginning of Belmont church and seen him provide dedicated active service for the entire history of Belmont. He was generous with his time, talent, wisdom and money and was the backbone of the church. Additionally he was our family Doctor and supported us through my younger sister Joy’s challenging medical conditions and months of hospital stays and multiple operations.
    I have so many great memories of him. Including: Sunday dinner after church at your house ( both of you were probably too young to remember) and Sunday dinner at our house as well; Pheasant hunting in Sterling Colorado with my dad and Dr. Smith. He had a double barrel shotgun and was a great shot which made our hunts successful! ; His friendship to my dad and always checking to see how my mother (Theresa) was doing as she aged and declined in health. He truly cared about my mother’s well being. I will also never forget his visit to the hospital here in Phoenix while he was on vacation to see Joy. The timing was such that I needed the emotional boost he provided as much as Joy needed his surprise visit. God’s timing is always perfect and he works through servants like Dr. Smith. My mother isn’t currently capable of providing her appreciation but please know she valued Dr. Smith’s friendship as well. So on behalf or the Ross family thank you Dr. Smith! Val and Cassy Ross

  2. “Doc” Smith that’s what we called growing you up knowing you literally since the day I was born. God blessed me with your care of my physical health and my spiritual health by always pointing me to God and His way and will for my life. You are in so many memories of big events in my life and you always loved me and encouraged me every step of the way. I vividly remember you standing outside the funeral home after my Dad passed away and we talked about the stages of grief and how God would help me and carry me through. Thank you for your life lived faithful to God especially knowing your story of your childhood and life. You never strayed from God, and I thank you for teaching me that. I’m sure you are having a great celebration in heaven, its sounding sweeter every day. I am praying for your family as they start these days without you. I am so blessed to have known you!
