Glen Hayse Smith, June 21, 1944 - August 21, 2014.

With respect to a person's passing, it should be a universal ideal that everyone be commemorated equally. Each person, despite their history, was very loved by certain people during the span of their life. Not everything a person does is good and not everything a person does is wrong. With this forethought, the memory of Glen Hayse Smith will now be historically recorded:

Glen was a man afflicted with stubbornness, his own value system, and a heart that was sometimes too large to contain. Glen was a man that left many impressions on the earth. Glen was smart, intuitive, competitive, and unique. He was preceded in death by his parents, Murry Hayse Smith and Fran Arceneaux Smith, his brother Roger Eric Smith. He is survived by his children, Christopher Hayse Smith and Kimberley McDaniel-Robinson and his brother Frank Murry Smith.

Born June 21, 1944, in Houma, Louisiana, Glen graduated from the Mansfield, Louisiana school system and immediately attended Louisiana Tech University. After earning his diploma, Glen went on to earn his CPA license. Intrigued with power and the ability to be a part of every conclusion or solution, Glen next earned his law degree from Louisiana State University.

Glen was a successful lawyer for many years and held his practice in Shreveport, Louisiana.

Glen did not understand that limits were usually a good thing. He also didn't comprehend the countless positive things he did that made him so very valuable to those that now miss him.

With this historical record, those that loved Glen hope that when (not if) they and their loved ones pass, the community will focus on the positive impact they have made in their shared space. It is important to remember Glen was a generous man and a man gifted with an impressive talent for words. He was a father, he was a son, he was a brother and he was also a loyal friend.

Glen worked and played hard and never went unnoticed in a crowd. Glen's laugh was large, his aspirations were grandiose, and he always paved his own road rather than accepted a path another had already cleared. Glen left this life on August 21, 2014.
