The father, activist and the man, Kris “ROCC” Smith, was tragically taken from his family and this world due to gun violence on 12/11/20. We have all grown to love Kris Smith for many reasons, especially for his social justice work in the community. He was a family oriented man with four young children of his own. Who are left without a father, protector and provider. Kris recently established his own security business in efforts to build a secure future and provide for his family. He also wanted to show his children and others to always stand up and have a voice for what’s right. The knowledge and words he spoke are now left without conclusions.. He had SO much more to say and do but his voice was tragically cut short and we will never know how much this man would have accomplished. Kris ‘ROCC’ Smith name & legacy will live on in his hometown Louisville, Kentucky as well as throughout the world. So we are asking for everyone to come together to contribute to his legacy and support his family and children through this tragic holiday season. We are all stunned, heartbroken and confused but in this moment of devastation can we all come together as a village and shine a light on this situation. The family needs all support and love because him or his children didn’t deserve this. So PLEASE let’s come together to be that ROCC that he was. Anything helps. Thanks and Love from the Smith Family!
