“Greg loved to play golf and was damn good at it! But he always made you comfortable to play with him.” – Sonia Smith
Gregory (Greg) Vann Smith, most recently of Ocean Springs, Mississippi, but a long-time resident of Loveland, Ohio, passed away after a brief illness on Jan. 27.
He was born on June 29, 1965, in Des Moines, Iowa.
Greg is survived by his wife Sonia, whom he considered his beloved and devoted best friend; sons Zachary Smith of Cincinnati, Ohio, and Camerin (Trisha) Smith of Carrollton, Texas, and many longtime friends and extended family.
He was preceded in death by his brother Rob, his mother Pat, and his father Dean.
He spent most of his career traveling as a Sales Executive working for Nestle, Gourmet Foods International, and Rutherford & Meyer.
Greg loved to have fun, no matter the situation. He loved a spirited debate and had an uncanny ability to always make people laugh–and he enjoyed doing so. He would go out of his way to cheer someone up. His memory, love for his family, corny jokes, and wacky sense of humor will be cherished by all who had the privilege of knowing and loving him.
His wishes were to be cremated and due to COVID restrictions, there will be no immediate services.
Please keep his family in your thoughts and prayers as they learn to navigate life without him.
