Theodore Robert Smith Obituary
IN MEMORY OF THEODORE ROBERT SMITH Theodore Robert Smith was born on August 29th, 1940 and passed away November 25th, 2012. Theo dedicated 30 years to his career as a Mathematician working in Civil Service for the Navy. He had a brief second career working as a Systems Analyst for Inland Empire Foods. His true passions though, developed outside of work. He began a prolific avocation as an Artist and placed in a number of juried shows. His passion for cultivating bamboo became readily apparent to all who happened upon the "Bamboo Haven" he created surrounding the house. He knew each of the 120+ varieties present by their scientific name and loved to wax eloquent on his garden. He was an avid round dancer, a whiz with words, and loved to ponder the unanswerable mysteries of life On June 13th, 1998, Theo married Doreen Van Leeuwen and became "Number Two Dad" to her three daughters. He offered his love and support to each of them in countless ways. Anytime one of them would leave the house Theo would walk with them to the car, offer a hug and a blessing, and wave until they turned the corner. Now it's our turn to wave goodbye to our dearest Theo as he turns the corner into the new reality that awaits each of us. "Goodbye, Theodorableyour place in our hearts is permanent." Please contact (951)359-1706 about the Celebration of Life service to be held on December 22nd.
