Terry Wayne Smith passed away unexpectedly February 13, 2014. He was born September 20, 1944 in Asheville, North Carolina to Wayne E. and Avonell A. Smith. When Terry was 5 years old, the family, along with his beloved Uncle Paul, moved to Arizona due to his father's failing health. Terry graduated from West High School and attended Northern Arizona University. As he journeyed thru life, he met Lori Sohrweide, the love of his life. Last year they celebrated 28 years of marriage. Terry thought of himself as a simple man who cherished a simple life. Together with Lori, he enjoyed experiencing the beauty of the earth, writing poetry, reading and learning. Terry is survived by his wife Lori; his sister Ronda (Larry) O'Neill; his sister-in-law Barbara Smith; his niece Erin O'Neill; his nephews Brian O'Neill, Justin Pattyn and Joshua (Mary) Pattyn.
