On Wednesday, May 29, 2019 Dale Victor Smith passed away suddenly of natural causes at the age of 76.

Born April 20, 1943 in Kittanning, Pennsylvania, to Charles Smith and Garnet (Bowser) Smith he grew up on a farm in Worthington, Pennsylvania with 2 brothers.

A Jack-of-all-trades, Dale worked in many varying occupations ranging from mining to construction, in multiple states, before finding his way to Carbon County, Montana in 1979.

On Oct. 29, 1966 Dale married Dorothy (Cole) Smith, re-exchanging their vows Oct. 29, 1989. Between the two of them they had a total of 8 children.

Dale enjoyed spending much of his time hunting, fishing, gardening, playing cards with friends, and having BBQs with family. Dale had a talent playing the accordion. He would often play his personal favorite Wabash Cannonball while the kids would dance. Those closest to him will greatly miss his genuine smile and his sense of humor with an endless supply of jokes.

Dale is preceded in death by his parents, one brother, and 2 grandsons. He is survived by his wife, 1 brother, 8 children, and numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

 Dale was baptized in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the summer of 2018. His services will be held at the Red Lodge LDS Church at 4 W Fork Rd in Red Lodge, Montana, at 11 a.m., Saturday June 15, 2019.

We love and miss you dad. We will see you again one day.
