Obituary for John Edward Smith

John Edward Smith, a resident of Hartland, MI, died in the morning hours of March 27, 2019. He was 51 years old.

John was a proud graduate of Hartland High School and a devoted member of the Salem Lutheran Church. He liked fun, adventurous activities such as performing magic, perfecting his karate (black belt), being in the water and searching for lost treasures with his metal detector on land or while scuba diving in local lakes. Always looking forward to family gatherings he wouldn’t hesitate to let his nephews play with his extensive Match Box Car collection or dress as Santa for his friends' children. John was a cherished member of his family and a pleasure to be around for those fortunate enough to have him in their lives. His smile was a beautiful thing to see and he will be greatly missed. 

He is survived by his father, William R. Smith; his sister, Lena and brother-in-law, Carl Anderson; nephews, Cody (Tabitha), Shane (Kelly) & Chad (Michelle); great-nieces and nephews, Omni, Carly, Corbin, Satori, Carter, Ocean, Link, Kit; aunt, Barbara; cousin, Kim and her daughter, Alex as well as many close friends and extended family members. John was preceded in death by his mother, Wanda Smith (d. 2019) and infant brother, Chuckie and sister, Della.
