Obituary of Jeffery Smith
SMITH, Jeffery L.
Taken from us far too soon, Jeffery Leonard Smith, age 53, slipped away gently during the early morning hours of January 30th, 2019 at Providence Care Hospital. Surrounded by the love of family and friends both old and new, Jeff spent most of his 15 month battle with brain cancer sharing not only his kindness to all but also his amazing humour and personality that echoed laughter through the hallways of Heritage 2 at PCH from Jeff, visitors, patients and staff alike. Son of Thelma (deceased) and Andrew (deceased) Jeff will be greatly missed by wife Wendy (nee Burnette), daughter Mallory, brother Gregory Graveline (Jimmy Moorhouse), fur baby Teddy and a large and loving extended family. We want to acknowledge the incredible caring and compassionate support of all of the staff on Heritage 2 for both Jeff and all of his family and the wonderful care and support from all that worked with Jeff along this journey. While our hearts hurt, we are left with the enduring memories of a beautiful man who provided us with a lifetime of love and laughter. In keeping with Jeff’s wishes there will be no immediate formal service and a celebration of life will take place at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Palliative Care Unit at Providence Care Hospital or the Gord Downie Brain Cancer Research Fund are greatly appreciated.
