Steve P. Smith, 62, of Great Falls, Montana passed peacefully away on Tuesday, October 2, 2018 at his home.
Steve’s memorial service will take place Saturday, October 13, 2018 at his lifelong church, Bethel Lutheran at 10 a.m.
Steve was born in Great Falls in 1956 to Frank and Gladys Smith. From an early age he had a strong passion for music, playing in a band with his best friend John through high school and part of college.
Steve was gregarious and fun loving possessing the gift of befriending anyone, which made his career in sales quite successful.
Steve started in music sales and transitioned into antiques and fine jewelry which quickly became a hobby and continued passion.
He was a business owner for many years before venturing to drug and alcohol corrections which he did for 13 years.
Throughout every season of his life the common denominator was his connection with his faith and the church family.
He was the self-proclaimed social director of Bethel Lutheran Church rarely missing the opportunity to be involved and serve.
Steve is leaving behind his 3 daughters, Sophia, Celeste, and Avery; and sister Colleen who he loved beyond measure.
Steve taught his girls the value of faith, family, and hard work, never forgetting to remind us to stop and smell the roses.
He also taught us to appreciate a good glass of Scotch and a mooched cigar every once and a while.
Steve’s giant servant heart and zest for life will carry on through his sister, daughters, niece and nephew, as well as his 5 grandchildren.
