Smith Family Fund

Our hearts break for the unexpected and tragic passing of Matthew Ryan Smith.  As he and his family were traveling, they were involved in a serious car accident on June 28, 2017. Matthew sustained fatal injuries.  His wife, Ashley, and two children, Ryan (5 yrs old) and Emma (3 yrs old), survived the crash with non life threatening injuries. 
Matthew was a wonderful husband and father and will be missed greatly. 
This fund was established to assist the family in this time of tragedy.
