Christopher Allen Smith

Memphis, TN

Christopher Allen Smith, 47, passed away Monday, February 20, 2017. He was born in Memphis TN, the son of Lillian Akins Smith, and the late Jerry Allen Smith. He is preceded in death by his grandparents Noal and Opal Akins, and Anderson and Ollie Smith. A life long Memphian, Chris attended Briarcrest High School and received a degree in Business Marketing from Christian Brothers University.



Chris championed a long career in the medical device industry in Memphis and most recently worked as a Medical Educator for Wright Medical Technology. He was respected by his coworkers for his lighthearted personality and extensive knowledge in the field.

A most wonderful and adoring Husband, he is survived by his wife, Ashley Foster Smith, son, Luke and daughter, Lydia. He is also survived by his mother, Lillian, sister, Rebecca Smith Armstrong (Chris), brother-in-law, Justin Foster, and his beloved niece and nephews.



Chris was truly a gentle man with a warm and disarming personality. His casual, gifted sense of humor and confidence is attested by his many life long friends and colleagues. One of the most amazing Fathers, with the patience of a saint, and a velvet guiding hand.



We mourn the loss of our Best Friend, Husband, Father, Son, Brother and so much more. With infinite love and forever in our hearts, until we meet again, dear Chris.



Family and friends will gather at Saint Louis Catholic Church for a Memorial Service on Friday, February 24. Visitation will begin at 3:30 pm immediately followed by funeral services at 4:30 pm.
