Smith, Jack Edward, age 74, of Butler Township, passed away at Miami Valley Hospital on December 24, 2018. He was born on January 20, 1944 in Mariemont, Ohio to the late Edgar A. Smith and Mary Craig Smith. Jack graduated in 1962 from Vandalia-Butler High School and received a Bachelor’s of Science in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Cincinnati. Jack loved music and played bass trombone in both the Butler High School Marching Band and the NCR Band, predecessor to today’s Carillon Park Band. In his younger days he was an avid skier and belonged to the Dayton Ski Club. His boyhood home was located very close to Cricket Holler, and many happy hours were spent wandering through the camp with both his brother and childhood friend Dan Rogge. He was employed at the Inland Division of General Motors and, as a design engineer, held 34 patents. Jack is survived by his son, Rodger D. Smith (Valerie), step-daughters Jennifer M. Wehrs, Sheila R. Wehrs, step-son James T. Wehrs and grandson Leo B. Smith. He is also survived by his brother, Larry A. Smith (Dee), niece and nephew Judith A. Smith and John E. Smith and his best friends Richard Oaks and Dr. Bill Dahling. The family will receive friends 2 to 4 p.m. Saturday, January 5, 2018 at Baker-Hazel & Snider Funeral Home 5555 Philadelphia Dr. at N.

To all of Jack's family - please accept my deepest sympathies for your loss. Jack an I were business partners in Summit Concept Development from 1992-1997, until I move to the Seattle area. Jack was a wonderful partner. We shared a lot of time together, both good and bad. He had a very insightful business perspective, which I so valued. I will forever remember his enduring friendship , which we maintained until his passing. We often recounted how much we wish we could spend time together, even though we were so far apart. RIP, Jack.

To Jack’s family and friends, please accept my heartfelt condolences on your loss. I too have recently suffered a loss and have found comfort in reading Job 14:14,15 where it shows that Jehovah God yearns to bring back to life the dead who are preserved in his memory. The Bible gives us a wonderful hope of living in a paradise on earth and seeing the resurrection of our dead loved ones. (Luke 23:43; John 5:28,29) May this bring you some comfort and strength as well, remembering that soon God will wipe away our tears and swallow up death forever. (Isaiah 25:8)

I wish to express my condolences for the loss of your loved one. The scriptures let us know that soon we will experience a resurrection at Acts 24:15.

I had the good fortune to have grown up with Jack and Larry Smith who lived across the street from me. I was an only child, so to have a couple of fellows my age was heaven sent. Back in those days it was a sparsely populated countryside. As I reflect back, there were so many fond memories to numerus to mention. I feel lucky to have had their friendship my entire life. My condolence to all the family. Jack truly was a unique individual who will be greatly missed. Lifelong friend and neighbor, DanRogge
