Gregory Smith, 58, passed away peacefully and surrounded by his family on Monday, July 17, 2023.
Greg was born on March 4, 1965 in Wayland, Michigan to Shirley and Lewis Smith. He attended Michigan State University and served in the United States Army. He eventually relocated to Denver, Colorado, which he came to call home. Greg had a successful career in the technology field, where his friends and colleagues recognized him as a dedicated employee and supportive mentor. Outside of work, he was a movie buff and jokester who made it his mission to make his children and nieces and nephews laugh. He loved troubleshooting tech issues for friends and family, MSU sports, and his favorite dog and longtime companion, Max. Most of all, he loved his family.
Greg is survived by Kathi Smith, his wife of 23 years; children Christopher (Tanya) Smith, Steven (Aliona) Smith, Alexandra (Cayden) DeBois, and Bryce Smith; mother, Shirley Smith; sisters Cherie Neu, Michelle Abner, and Stacie Peltomaa; and many nieces, nephews, cousins, aunts, uncles, and friends. He is predeceased by his mother-in-law, Jeanne Whalen, and his father, Lewis Smith, who provided him comfort as he prepared to meet them on the other side.
