Jack Smith

October 15, 1934 — September 16, 2018

Jack Russell Smith, 83 of Dillon, Montana went to be with his Lord and Savior on September 16, 2018. He was born on October 15, 1934 in Dillon to Clyde Hunter and Madge Susannah (Ray) Smith. He was the baby of the family the last of 8 children. Jack met Marion the love of his live when he was in 3rd grade they were together all through school. He attended Beaverhead County High School and worked on the family ranch as a young man. In June of 1957 he entered the armed forces and proudly served our country in the United States Army he was discharged to the reserves where he served until June 5, 1959 he then married Marion on December 26, 1960. One of the things that Jack wished that he had done earlier was get married to Marion. They had two children Craig and Deborah. His fondest working memories were ranching with his father, unfortunately his working career was cut short in 1968 when he suffered a major head injury while he was working in the Centennial Valley, that left him unable to continue working. That did not hinder his creativity and determination as he and his wife and son Craig built a one room pioneer cabin north of Dillon from rocks that they had gathered from all over the area. The cabin is still standing today. He, Marion and Craig built many rock walls, flower planters and several more projects. Jack loved making things with rocks and he enjoyed welding and making things with horse shoes. When visiting his home, you might have sat on one of his horse shoe chairs that were on the porch. He had a lifelong mischievous side, loved to tease his brothers, sisters, nieces and nephews. Jack would like to be remembered for always trying to do what was right, being honest and a hard worker. Jack lived his life for the Lord. His sentiments to those he loved were that they should receive Jesus Christ as their personal Savior. He felt that was the best thing that anyone could do with their life. Jack is preceded in death by his wife, Marion and his daughter, Deborah. He is survived by his son, Craig and numerous nieces and nephews. Services are scheduled for Monday, August 24th, 2018 at 1 PM at Brundage Funeral Home with military honors scheduled at Mountain View Cemetery. Memorial contributions may be made to the First Presbyterian Church or the YMCA.
