Raymond E. Smith

Raymond Eugene Smith, age 63, a lifelong resident of Swanton, Ohio, passed away on Monday afternoon, September 13, 2021, at Flower Hospital in Sylvania. He was born in Toledo, Ohio on August 23, 1958, to Floyd and Anne (Sell) Smith. Ray was a 1977 Swanton High School graduate. He was recently employed at Preform Technologies in Swanton. And was a long time employee of Davey Tree.

Ray was a very intelligent and talented person. He loved putting a smile on people’s faces. Ray was a character; he had a bright and unique personality. He was always willing to help people. Ray was also an incredible artist, particularly taking on a fondness for drawing. He was also an active member of Swanton Jaycees back in the day.

Ray will be greatly missed by his sister, Sheila (Kevin Weber) Smith; brothers, Bennett (Marilou) Smith and Allen (Cathy Crippen) Smith; nephew, Jacob Smith; nieces, Allyson (Zach) Akenberger and Madison Smith; great niece, Jade Akenberger.

Ray was preceded in death by his parents, Floyd and Anne Smith.

A private Graveside Service will be held for Ray at Amboy Township Cemetery. A celebration of life will be at a later date.

Mono,
Beyond all odds, you were the one that was to live to be 175 years old. Yet alas, you are the first of my Band of Brothers to leave this earth behind.
Amidst the sorrow, there is the remembrance that l am one of relatively few people that was fortunate to know you. The Book of Unique was written about you. "Elect Ray Smith 2016" says it all.
Many thanks
