Robert Smitton Obituary
ROBERT SMITTON Robert Barney Smitton, a 61-year-old Down syndrome man, went home to his maker on Monday, March 20, 2017, the evening before World Down Syndrome Day. Born in Willows, CA on September 25, 1955 to Harrison and Ellen Smitton, he was raised in Codora and later lived in Magalia and Paradise. He was known for his hugs and for his love of the Monkeys music which he sang and played daily. As an adult, he became a huge fan of the 49ers. The first question Robert asked a new person he met was when was their birthday, which he then never forgot. Robert was much loved and is survived by his father Harrison Smitton, age 91, sisters Debbie Bailey and Kathy Callen, brother-in-law Michael Callen, sister-in-law Mary Payne, as well as a myriad of nieces and nephews. "He made our life rich--and will be greatly missed!"
