Scott Smith - May 20, 2011

He passed away on May 20, 2011, at the age of 32.
Scott was named Scottie after the song, “Watching Scottie Grow,” by Bobby Goldsboro. Some may have known Scott by “Geronimo” for his love of Indians and traditions.
At the age of 17, Scott was the foreman at a lumber yard in Litchfield, Minn. He worked construction, farmed, welded and millwork.
Scott was residing in Benkelman, Neb., with his wife, Bess Smith, daughter Hailea, son Antoine and sister-in-law Brenda.
He loved life. He took everything he did to the extreme. He played hard and loved harder and the people he cared about knew this. He had a passion for computers, music and outdoor activities such as fishing, biking or canoeing with his family/friends—destination wherever. His true passion though was his family. He threw himself into becoming a full-time dad and like everything else he set his mind to, he was amazing!
He was happiest surrounded by the love of his family and friends. Teaching his daughter, Hailea, how to shoot her wrist rocket or watching morning cartoons, playing peek-a-boo with his son, Antoine, chasing each other around the house, or simply singing silly songs to his unborn baby. He also loved cooking for his wife and kids.
?Scott was preceded by his father, Ron H. Smith; grandfather, Gordon H. Libby, aunt, Janice L. Hoskins, great uncle, Glenn Libby and cousin, Keith Libby.
