Smith was born July 12, 2001, at Hastings, the youngest son of Kelly and Karla (Scarrow) Smith. He attended Cozad Elementary and Middle Schools.
His passion was to travel to other planets and to mingle with the stars, according to family members. He had an extreme curiosity of other dimensions and life after our own, especially after the loss of his uncle, Glen Smith, in a 2014 automobile accident.
Smith loved to play video games, football, go swimming and hang out with his sister, Jacey. He also enjoyed hunting, fishing and target shooting.
He was a happy, loving and caring young man, and warmed hearts everyday with his non-stop smiles and laughter, said the family. He will be missed and family members pray that his journey leads him to the destination he was seeking.
