Obituary of Walter Smith


Walter David

Remembering, Walter David Smith (Dave Smith) age 58 of Deptford New Jersey left us on April

19th, 2017 to be with his Sweety, the late Anne J. (nee Greeley). David leaves behind his loving

parents, Walter and Jacqueline Smith, beloved sister Susan Carr, son Tommy and wife Buffy

Marks, daughter, Anna Marks, sister in law, Patsy Greeley, Grampy to eight beautiful

grandchildren, three great-grandchildren and many extended family members, friends and

neighbors. He will be greatly missed by so many who loved him.

David was an amazingly talented artist with a prismatically painted personality. If you have been

fortunate to have known him, you were then touched by his emotional brilliance, spark, and

spiritedness but also by his kind and gentle soul. We will not mourn Dave's passing but rather

celebrate his life as he had hoped we would.

Family, friends and loved ones are invited to join in a celebration for Dave on Wednesday, May

3rd, at the Elks Lodge, 733 Highland Avenue, Deptford NJ from 12 to 4:00 pm. There will be

food and drinks in David's honor and we will share memories in his light and remember him


We ask that you dress casual and comfortable. You are also invited and encouraged to bring

a picture of a loved one who has passed for the memorial table so that we may remember and

celebrate them on this day as well. In lieu of flowers, donations for Hospice will be collected in

honor of Dave and his most beloved and adored Anna. Arrangements under the direction of
