Obituary for John Daniel Smith

John Daniel Smith - 62
Born May 29th, 1956
Passed November 10th, 2018

John was born in Mt. Clemens, Michigan to Robert and Ann Smith, and passed away near his family in University Place, Washington. He is survived by his loving wife of 35 years, Linda Naccarato Smith; two sons, Jeremy (Willa) Smith, Andrew (Laura) Smith; grandson, Noah Jonson; sister, Sammi Fox; brother, David Smith; and numerous extended family members and friends. He is known by the titles: Husband, Father, Grandfather (papa), Brother, Son and Friend.

John was a proud veteran who served in the Marines for 3 years active duty and 3 years in the Reserves. John had many passions in his life such as music, hunting, ball sports, and gymnastics. His demand for excellence in the field of gymnastics garnered recognition in the State of Washington, nationally, and internationally. He passionately and patiently shared his knowledge and lived to help others by building their gymnastics programs, offering his announcing services, and assisting with training camps. The family wishes to express their heartfelt appreciation to CHI Franciscan Hospice, and Hearthside Manor for the loving care and kindness they showed John throughout this past year.
