Memorial Fund, Jeff Smolka

Jeffrey Carlson Smolka, 40, died unexpectedly at home on March 16, 2018, leaving his Fiancé Kendra Warren, and his two children.  His family, devastated by the loss, find further hardship due to financial hard times that Jeff was making his way through.  He passed without life insurance. His parents Clarence and Geraldine Smolka and his family are in need of assistance. Any amount will help and money raised will go to funeral expenses.  Jeff Smolka attended Skyline High School, grew up in Emigration Canyon where he learned to love wilderness and nature. He was an avid hunter, fisherman, hiker, camper and an Eagle Scout. He worked as a tradesman, as a Finish Carpenter and loved woodworking of all kinds. His twelve-year-old twins were his passion and his life, along with his fiancée, Kendra J. Warren. They had set a date of June 30 for their wedding. He worked for many years for Smolka Construction and was instrumental in building custom cabinetry and finish work.
