David L. Smith

January 18, 1962 ~ June 16, 2020

David Lindsay Smith, age 58, passed away peacefully surrounded by family and friends in his West Valley home. Dave was the youngest of seven siblings, born to Frank and Mollie Smith. He grew up romping through the foothills of Bountiful with his siblings and friends.

Family was very important to Dave. His children are William (Becky), Charles (LuEssa), Lindsay (Scott), Deborah, and Mollie (Kieran); and his step-children are Jeremiah (Tammy), Jamela (Michael), Jennifer (Aaron), Jacqueline (Kate), Joni (Nathan), Jamie (Blaine), Jeffrey (Allison), and Jared. His extended family includes 38 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren, who all enjoyed spending time with, and hearing stories from, “Grandpa Dave”.

Dave was a talented person that was extremely eclectic in his interests. A skilled auto mechanic, scale plastic model builder, shooting sport enthusiast, weekend motorcycle warrior, experienced home repairman, lover of Nascar, technology professional, patriot, connoisseur of Village Inn, and a true collector of many things. He had a wealth of knowledge, and was very willing to share, and to help others in any way that he could. The many times working together on cars, going camping or wheeling, or just visiting Village Inn for a meal will be a great source of memories for many years to come.

For over 30 years Dave worked at Salt Lake Community College as a server administrator. Among his colleagues he was known for his knowledge of systems, but more importantly for his reliability and quality of work. The relationships built with co-workers are among some of his most cherished friendships, and have been a source of great strength and help to both Dave and his family.

Preceded in death by his parents, one brother, and three grandchildren. He is survived by his wife, Jamie; his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren; along with siblings, nieces, nephews, and many close friends.

A visitation will be held on Monday, 22nd of June, from 9:30 AM to 11:00 AM at his home in West Valley. Private funeral services will be held later. In accordance with Dave’s wishes, his cremated remains will be scattered at a favorite four wheeling location. Online condolences at larkincares.com. Have a nice day.


Well that damn diabetes is just bad. I have three in my family now the latest is Aurora she’s seven now. I remember back When we were in Tennessee visiting Pete before he went to the Iraqi war, you went really low and we couldn’t wake you up and you said later when we talked that you watched us from a corner up in the room. You have done many things since that time. You fought hard Dave. Your children are great people. Have fun riding on that motorcycle again love you Shirley
