Roger Townsend Smith Obituary

November 1960 - May 2, 2017

Roger Smith passed away in his home in Marysville, CA, on May 2, 2017.

He was a loving son, brother, uncle, nephew, cousin and friend. He joined his loving parents in heaven and leaves behind a brother and two sisters.

Roger was born, and raised, in Sacramento. He lived in Salem, Oregon, for a few years and eventually settled in Marysville. He attended Yuba College receiving his Associate in Science degree, with a Certificate in Measurement Science in 1996. His love of reading enhanced his natural born intelligence and he enjoyed sharing his knowledge with others. He was a master puzzle solver, could work any crossword puzzle, and solve many math problems in his head. Roger was mischievous and always enjoyed a challenge and an adventure. He worked in various fields but primarily in the restaurant business. His faith carried him through many struggles.

Roger touched many lives with his kindness, curiosity, generosity and wit. He commonly provided assistance to those in need and supported a number of charities. He was extremely loyal to both family, friends, and his faithful cat, Kelly.

Roger will be missed greatly, yet will continue to reside in many people's hearts.

In honor of Roger's life please donate in his name to Sutter-Yuba Friday Night Live, Prevent Child Abuse America, Yuba-Sutter SPCA, or honor Roger through the act of doing something kind for someone every day.
