Gary Nason Smith

Wednesday, May 24, 2017

Corinth, Vt. — Gary Nason Smith, 60, of Corinth, Vt. passed away at home, Saturday, May 20, 2017, after a fierce four-year battle with stage four cancer. Gary left behind him his beloved other half of 30 years, Jennifer Crimmin; their five children, Jesse Smith, Amanda Smith and partner, George Welch, Sarah Smith and partner, Justin Cole, Madison Smith and partner, Jordan Rood, and Samantha Smith and partner, Tyler Byam; two, soon to be three, grandchildren – Riley, Owen, and ‘baby’ Cole; and a very large extended family. Gary is survived by brother, Earl and his wife, Joan, brother, David Smith and his wife, Nancy; and he is predeceased by his mother, Arline Ross, father, Roscoe Smith, sister, Barbra Nelson, and niece, Jenny Nelson.

Gary spent every day of his life doing the things that he loved. He was a self-employed master carpenter with a variety of unique skills. In his free time, Gary could be found outdoors, gardening, fishing, hunting, barbequing, and spending time with his family and friends. Gary loved his family dearly and he was always very proud of all of his children.

While we are relieved that Gary is no longer suffering, his wife, children, grandchildren, extended family, and friends will greatly miss his one of-a-kind self each and every day. Gary lived a fulfilling life that he could be proud of. He had no regrets when his final days rapidly approached. As Gary had wished, our family will be hosting a celebration of life at his home, however, the date is still to be determined.

Dad, from the bottom of all of our hearts we hope you are finally resting easy. We hope that you shine your light upon us all. We love you and we will continue to look for you to guide us.

The Hale Funeral Home and Cremation Care of Bradford, Vt. is in charge of arrangements.
