PERRY E. SMITH Perry E Smith, 100 years young, passed away on February 23, 2017 while residing in Coeur d'Alene Idaho. He was born in Eureka, Montana on October 5, 1916, but was a long time resident of Kennewick, WA, where he had lived for 73 years.

Perry loved hunting, fishing and gardening, especially raising and selling his wonderful raspberries. He was a jack-of-all trades and a licensed carpenter, plumber and electrician. He was a deep thinker and inventor until the very end. He loved his family and was always there for any of them at the drop of a hat. He was kind, generous and had a great sense of humor. He will be greatly missed by his family and the many people he had touched and helped over the years. Services are in the planning stages and will be announced as soon as possible. In lieu of flowers or donations, his family requests that everyone just take extra time to spend with loved ones. Questions? Please email Paula at callznputs2001 @yahoo.com.
