Bradley K. Smith, age 51, passed away May 22, 2021, at St. Rita’s Medical Center.
Brad was born March 27, 1970 in Lima, Ohio to Creed and Gloria (Barnett) Smith, both of whom survive in Lima. He is also survived by a special aunt and uncle James and Joyce Dean of Kentucky.
Brad worked as a foreman for Fritchie Asphalt & Paving Company for 26 years and worked in his off time at Whitneys Painting & Sandblasting. One of Brad’s greatest passions was working from dusk till dawn; he could fix anything for anyone. Brad also enjoyed riding motorcycles. He enjoyed mowing the lawn and cruising around in his truck, and at the end of the day sitting on his porch and enjoying the country. Brad enjoyed the company of his friends Kevin Litsey, Michael Schoonover, Bob Gehr, Mike Whitney, David Whitney, and Cam Aller who were a cherished part of his life. Most of all, as great men often do, Brad adored spending time with his three children: Adam Creed Smith, Brendon Leigh French, and Krystal Lynn French. Brad was, by all accounts, an amazing father and role model.
Survivors of Brad include: his children Adam Creed Smith, Brendon Leigh French, and Krystal Lynn French; significant other Loren Bree Howden; former wife Tracy Mault Smith; two brothers Greg (Laura) Smith and Alan (Lisa) Smith.
He is proceeded in death by his significant other Tracy Dancer.
