Randall Lynn Smith

Obituary Condolences

Randall Lynn Smith died March 10, 2012 at Danbury Hospital, Danbury, Conn. He was 54 years old. Randall, known by family and friends as Randy, was born November 30, 1957 in Cumberland, Maryland to parents Francis K. and Norma L.(Orndorf) Smith. The second of three sons, Randy grew up in Hamilton, Ohio, and attended the University of Cincinnati where he played a season of Bearcats basketball and earned a degree in graphic design. His talent and passion for the arts led to a successful career spanning over 30 years. He served two terms as president of the Connecticut Art Directors Club, and a piece of his work resides in the permanent collection of the Denver Art Museum. Although he excelled in graphic design, Randy's true love was sports. He played basketball, softball and golf, and shared his love of sports coaching baseball - from t-ball to big leagues - and basketball for the entire length of his two sons' Bethel basketball careers. People who knew him were well aware of how avid a sports fan he was, and will agree it is fitting he is being remembered during March Madness. In addition to his devotion to the Cincinnati Bearcats he was a loyal Ohio State football and Cincinnati Reds baseball fan. He was also a huge fan of music, history (especially the Civil War) and movies, and was a widely recognized trivia guru. Deeply involved in the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Danbury, he served as a member of the board of trustees, the choir, and perhaps most importantly as youth adviser. Randy was predeceased by his father and brother Jeffery K., and is survived by his mother, brother Brian, wife Lisa, and two sons Grant and Tucker. Randy will be loved and remembered by everyone whose heart he touched. A memorial service will be held Wednesday, March 14, at 1 p.m. at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Danbury. The family requests that in lieu of flowers donations be made to the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Danbury.
