Ronald Hugh Smith “Old Ron”, 47, of Gilbertsville passed away Tuesday, July 6, 2010, at Methodist Hospital in Philadelphia with his loving family surrounding him and praying with him at his bedside.
He was the son of Robert and Kathleen Smith of Gilbertsville. He was the Father of Ronnie Lee Smith (husband to Sarah) and the Grandfather to Mykel Smith.
Ronald is survived by his brother Bob (husband to Michelle), sister Kathy (wife to Dean Landis), brother Chris (husband to Janette), sister Jennifer (wife to Chad Bond), sister Melody, and sister Kimberly (wife to Bryan Uba). He was abundantly blessed with many loving Nieces, Nephews, Aunts, Uncles and Cousins. All of Ron’s Grandparents have passed away before him. He came from a very large family that loved him dearly and was faithful to him all of his days.
In Ron’s younger years he loved having fun with motorcycles and snowmobiles. He had a great love for animals. He loved and enjoyed driving around the country in a tractor trailer truck for many different companies. He would say his best days were those behind the wheel heading down the road. He was a loving Son, Brother, Father, Uncle and Nephew to so many and he will forever be loved but never forgotten.
