TaCoy Smith: Scholarship & Memorial Fund

In honor of Lance Corporal (LCpl) TaCoy Smith, a memorial fund has been established for those who would like to show their support in this way. The money received will be used to establish a scholarship fund for TaCoy's 3 year old son, offset memorial and related expenses incurred by his family, and ensure his legacy is one remembered with dignity, love, and generosity. 

TaCoy's unexpected death has left his family and friends heartbroken, distraught, and shaken. It is our hope that his community, friends, family, and fellow believers would rally together during this very difficult time, and lift up his family in unimaginable ways. Honoring, supporting, and loving TaCoy and his family can occur in a variety of ways, donation being only one of the many for which his family will be deeply appreciative. 

TaCoy will be dearly missed by so many. If only he truly understood the love we have for him and the impact he has had on us throughout his years. His spirit lives on in the loving presence of his Heavenly Father, and our hope is that his son and family will also find the peace, comfort, and love that TaCoy is now experiencing.   

Help lighten the burden of this tragedy through financial donation or in any other way that seems best for you. Please note that donations are not tax deductible. All money raised above our goal will be added to supplement the scholarship fund established for his son.

Matthew 11:28-30
--Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.














2 Corinthians 12:9--The Lord said, "My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness."

We will forever love you TaCoy!
