Patrick L. Smith 66
Passed away peacefully on Monday, December 6, 2021. He was born September 23, 1955 in Zanesville to the late Phillip and Clara Jones Smith.
Pat had a passion for agriculture. He spent many years as a Perry County Farm Bureau Board Member, lifetime member of the New Lexington FFA Alumni, and volunteered several years as a 4-H advisor. He loved to read books, no matter the genre. He worked and tinkered on the farm and drove school bus for over 40 years of his life. Every summer you could find him working on the scales at the Perry County Fair for the tractor pulls.
Pat was a stranger to no one and was always ready to give to others. But his greatest joy came from the smiles of his Head Start kids where he worked for the last 24 years. Pat was a member of St. Rose Catholic Church.
Pat is survived by his brother David (Melissa) Smith and sister, Catherine (Scott) Emmert all of New Lexington.
