David Frank Smith

December 18, 1930 ~ March 29, 2014

David Frank Smith was born December 18, 1930, at home on the family farm in Parkers Prairie, MN to parents, Asa and Daisy Smith. He first went to school in a one-room schoolhouse in Parkers Prairie, moving with his family to Tumwater, WA in 1937. He graduated high school at William Winlock Miller High School in Olympia, WA on June 3, 1949. Soon afterward, Dave enlisted in the U.S. Army and served in a Military Police Unit for two years. After an honorable discharge, he joined the Washington State Patrol as a dispatcher in Wenatchee, WA. During this time, he met and married his lifetime partner, Janet Abair, daughter of Ruben and Marie Abair. Following his employment in the Washington State Patrol, he worked various jobs, including Alcoa and Fields Roofing, then completing an 18 year career at Chelan County PUD in the water department. Dave was also a volunteer firefighter with Chelan County Fire District No. 1. Dave passed on from this life on March 29, 2014, from complications related to his lung function.

Dave is survived by his wife, Janet Smith; his four daughters, Roslyn Lawrence (Ron), Gwyn Corey (Debra), Julie Matsumura (Terry) and Tracy Bert (Glenn); his eight grandchildren; and five great-grandchildren.
