Obituary

Donald Leroy Smith, age 78, of Huber Heights, Ohio, passed away on May 22, 2022 from heart disease.  He was born on January 25, 1944 in Dayton, Ohio, son of the late Charles Smith and Delores (Fauber) Dennis.

Donald and his late wife, Geneva, raised a daughter and three sons in Huber Heights, Ohio.  After working for Honeywell for over 35 years, Donald retired to spend more time with his family and friends and to pursue his passion for golfing.  He was a member of Cactus John’s Saloon in Huber Heights, Ohio and loved hanging out with all his friends there and sometimes bragging or complaining about his golf game. Donald especially looked forward to the Fauber family reunions every year where he would reminisce about fond memories growing up on his Uncle Ralph and Aunt Joanne Fauber’s family farm in Hillsboro, Ohio.

 Donald is survived by his daughter-Teresa Woods and son-in-law Russell Woods; sons Russell Smith, David Smith, and Doug Smith; grandchildren Samantha Smith, Grace Smith, and Raylyn Smith; sister-Kathaleen Blye, and brothers-Kenneth Smith and Robert Smith; his partner Christie Waddell and her son Jonathan Waddell; and his many nieces, nephews and loving family and friends. 

 In addition to his parents, Donald was preceded in death by his wife, Geneva M. Smith.

 Funeral services will be held at 2:00 PM on Friday, May 27, 2022 at Rhoads-Edgington Funeral Home, 138 E. Main St. Hillsboro with Pastor Lloyd Shoemaker officiating. Interment will follow in the Hillsboro Cemetery.
