Bryan Smith Memorial Fund

On April 7th 2020, a bright light left this world.

Bryan Smith was loved by so many and was truly one of a kind. He was the greatest storyteller, best bear hugger, loudest / most enthusiastic person in the room, awesome dad, lover of travel and food, great chef, best leprechaun trap maker, fantastic musician, brilliant entrepreneur, great dancer and wedding date, avid reader, and all-around loving and fun person to be around.  His indefatigable spirit lives on in the hearts of his wife Elizabeth, 7-year-old daughter Mabel, and 1-month-old daughter Georgia, as well as all of those who knew him and loved him.

During this time of great uncertainty in the world, we are asking that you keep his family in your thoughts, and that you consider contributing financially to this fund that will go directly towards sustaining his wife and young girls during this unbelievably difficult chapter in their lives. A portion of donations will also be used to create a college fund for both girls.

On behalf of Elizabeth and Bryan's entire extended family, we thank you for your generosity and consideration.
