William Dale Smith, Jr. (Bill)

William Dale Smith, Jr. (Bill) age of 69 passed away on Feb. 21, 2022. William was born on March 27, 1955, the son of William Dale Smith, Sr. and Shirley Joanne Smith in Victorville, CA at George Air Force Base.

Bill was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Gallatin Ward. He served three missions for the Church: at the Independence Missouri Employment Center, in Baton Rouge, LA and at Adam-Ondi-Ahman in Jameson. Bill was always looking to learn something new; he studied everything. He had a very mechanical mind and enjoyed working on vehicles; he enjoyed a challenge.

Bill loved his family more than anything. His parents, siblings, children,
grandchildren, and great-grandchildren were extremely important to him. He
will be dearly missed by his family and friends.
