He is survived by his two daughters, Meredith (Kayla) Maloney of Galloway, Ohio, and Hannah Smith (Jason Hatcher) of Barnesville, Ohio; two brothers, Ron Smith (Kathy Hayes Blake) and Paul Jason (Theresa) Smith; and a sister, Martha Morris(Paul Fortner). He will also be remembered by his five stepchildren, Brian Kinkennon of Iowa, Tami Waltz of North Carolina, Traci Soles of North Carolina, Todd Wilson of Iowa, and Danielle Mitchell of Colorado, as well as several grandchildren, step-grandchildren, step-great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and extended family.
