Richard (Dick) Smith, of Commerce City passed away at Inglenook at Brighton on April 03, 2020. Preceded in death by his son, Donald Smith, parents George and Edith Smith, brother Daniel (Bud) Smith, and sisters Jean Klein and Betty Mulkey.
Dick is survived by his three children, Cindy Johnson (Brad) (CO), Rick Stallsmith (Cris) (MO), Cathy Smith (CO); eight grandchildren, and 12 great grandchildren, brother Larry Smith, sister Dodie Henry and many nieces and nephews. In addition, Dick is survived by his ex-wives, Patricia Matthews and Trudy Smith, with whom he has remained good friends.
He was a devoted and caring brother, father, uncle, and nephew. He was the sixth child and mostly reared by his sisters, Jean, Betty, and Dodie. He loved, admired, and adored his many family members. His most favorite times were family gatherings. He enjoyed traveling in his motorhome, camping, and trolling for fish. He was fond of going to his brother’s (Larry) house on the weekends joining friends and family to play cards. Larry and Dick cherished their time together on the golf course. He would spend time with his brother Bud; when they got together the laughing was many and very contagious. He also enjoyed building and creating; skilled with his hands; if he or someone needed something, he would figure out how to make it and proceed to make it. He was always eager to help when asked. His daily morning trips to the “doughnut” shop to meet with friends was the highlight of his day.
Many careers crossed his life’s path: his first job was working as a teenager at Grand Lake Reservoir at the marina, mechanic, shop foreman, sales, handyman, and landlord, proudly served on the board with South Adams County Water & Sanitation, and serving on the Board of Adjustments for Commerce City.
Passion for God was found and practiced by Dick at Open Door Fellowship and Good News Community Churches. Being a proud member of the “Music Makers”, he enjoyed singing at VA and nursing homes.
His children and his family will miss his bear hugs, smile and his laugh but will never forget them. His children will be forever grateful for teaching them all he knew and most of all for loving them unconditionally.
In his final years, his family expanded at the Inglenook at Brighton Assisted Living and he made many new friends. He was well known and loved for his chuckles and kindness. Special thanks to the staff for taking such good care of our daddy and loving him as you did.
A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date and details will be shared when available.
