Dean Smith passed away peacefully at his home in Tenino, Washington on October 13, 2018 surrounded by his family. He fought a courageous battle with esophageal cancer and is now resting at the side of his Lord and savior, Jesus Christ. Son of Carley and Lillian Smith, he was born on January 16, 1944 in Woodbine, Iowa. He was preceded in death by his son Richard Dean Smith.

Dean lived in the Omaha, NE area for 36 years where he owned and operated D & D Steel Erectors. He relocated to Olympia, WA in 1980 where he was a member of Steamfitters/Pipefitters Local 26 and worked on various projects around WA. He loved the outdoors and enjoyed flying, racing, golfing, archery and scuba diving. He was an avid sportsman and thoroughly enjoyed boating, hunting and fishing. After retirement he became a master carpenter and created many beautiful projects for family and friends.
