Not sure what to say?

What a true blessing from God Loy was!!! He ministered so much to so many, my mom Mona Byyny included! She was in Joint Heirs and every time I was there with her he so blessed me! We share in your grief it is hard! He will be so missed!! Sincerely in our prayers! Mona Byyny, Jim and Val Axtell

You were a cousin I would have enjoyed knowing and spending time with. Bless you.

My family grew up across the street from Loy and his family. He was a kind and generous neighbor who always had time for anyone on the block. He will be greatly missed and his legacy lives on with his sons.

My condolences to the Smith Family. I was a Caregiver for Loy Smith a few years ago.
Mr. Smith and I had many good conversations and I learned so much from this wise and caring man. I was honored to care for Loy. He always told me one day I would be a great Nurse when I finished my studies . Today I am a licensed nurse and never forgot Mr Smith and his encouraging words to never give up and always follow my dreams. May he Rest In Peace as I am sure he is with Our Heavenly Father....

I was privileged to know "Mr. Smith" from 1970-on due to my special friendship with his youngest son, Eric.

Mr. Smith lived a long and productive life. The entire Smith family should be very proud of him. He was a great husband, dad, grandfather, great grandfather, military hero, and member of his community and church. I was honored to know him. He always greeted me warmly and with a nice smile.

Mr. Smith will be missed but never forgotten. His wonderful...

The nicest and the most humble man I have ever met. Being best friends with Eric from fifth grade through college and in the present I spent many many hours at the Smith house growing up and Loy was always there with a smile and a loving heart. Had the pleasure Of being with him a couple days before his passing at the hospital with Eric as we sat there and watched the dodger game from his bedside it was just a totally awesome experience. Thank you Loy for everything.
God bless the Smith...
