Brian A. Smith, 53, passed away Wednesday, April 8, 2020.
He was born to Wayne A. and Judith A. (Russell) Smith on Aug. 17, 1966, in Alton, Ill.
He graduated from Plymouth High School in 1984, and from there attended Vincennes University where he received a degree in aircraft maintenance. After graduation he obtained a job at Metro Airport in Fishers and later went to Montgomery Aviation in Zionsville as an aircraft maintenance supervisor.
Eventually he moved back to Plymouth and joined the Plymouth Fire Department as a volunteer and EMT from 2013 to 2017. He then moved on to work for the Four Winds Casino as a first responder.
He had a kind and generous heart. He loved his family very much and enjoyed being around them and his many friends. He liked all things auto and aircraft related, including attending local airshows and building his own chipmunk model airplanes. He enjoyed classic rock music, racing and working with his hands. His greatest accomplishment was becoming a grandpa.
He is survived by his parents: Wayne and Judith Smith, Plymouth; a daughter: Miranda (Aaron) Smith, Plymouth; grandchildren: Adalyn Wagers, Plymouth; Gracie Thomas, Union Mills; and Alex, Tyler and Zachary Mason, Cypress, Tex.; nephews: Blake and Brandon Smith, Plymouth; and step-children: Heather (Thomas) Styborski, Union Mills; and Robert (Andrea) Mason, Cypress, Tex.
He is preceded in death by his brother: Brett A. Smith; and uncle: John “Tim” Russell.
Due to the restrictions on social gatherings, the family will have private services and a formal celebration of Brian’s life at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made to Teacher’s Credit Union c/o Adalyn Wagers Education Fund, 1501 N. Oak Drive Plymouth, IN 46563.
