Kurtis J. Smith (29) of Bellevue, Ohio died Monday, August 10, 2015 at his home. He was born October 29, 1985 in Norwalk, Ohio. Kurtis served in the US Army National Guard with a tour in Iraq. He was a diesel mechanic for Norfolk and Southern Railroad and enjoyed hunting, working out at the gym, and helping people farm. Kurtis loved anything that ran on diesel and was a member of the Volkswagen TDI club. He truly cherished being a father and loved spending time with his wife and daughter.
Remembrances shared by his Aunt Nancy: “Kurt used to do some farming work for my husband. He was a pleasure to have work for us. And he and my husband both have birthdays in October, so they had that in common. When he helped on the farm, it was general help, wherever needed. And also he helped build a windbreak. He liked red farm equipment (Case). My husband likes green (John Deere). That was the source of many good-natured jokes as to which was better!”
Resting Place: Maple Grove Cemetery, New Haven, Ohio.
