Obituary for Donald Lewis Smith

"A Man of Service"

Donald Lewis Smith passed away at his home in Murray, Utah on February 24, 2018. Don is survived by the love of his life Faye Bingham Smith; his children David, Brad, Mark, and Debbie; his grandchildren Lyndsay, Alex, Adam, Michael, Alicia, Toren, and Hailey; his great grandson Carter; his brother Jerry and his sister Carroll.

Don was born on December 11, 1933 in Tacoma, Washington. He was raised in Boise, Idaho. Don was a Captain in the Army. He graduated from The University of Idaho. Don was an active member of the LDS Church and he served as a singles ward bishop.

Don filled his life with many wonderful things including a deep love of serving those around him. He was married to his wife Faye for 59 years. He loved her dearly and enjoyed traveling and having adventures with her. He was an avid and skilled bowler, golfer, baseball and softball pitcher, basketball player, fisherman, and pheasant hunter. He influenced many people through his love of coaching.

Don and Faye seemed to always have someone in need living with them in their home. Don relished spending time with anyone and everyone he knew. He and Faye often filled their home with friends and loved ones for gatherings, parties and dinner.

Don’s chosen career as an insurance agent was reflective of his desire to protect people and help others live better more abundant lives. It was his nature to treat people with respect and kindness regardless of who they were, and because of that most people that knew him counted him as a dear friend.
