August 16, 1937 — November 24, 2022

Robert G. Smith, 85, of Garrettsville, passed away on Thursday, November 24, 2022. He was born August 16, 1937, in Portsmouth, Ohio to the late Pearl and Esther (nee Bobst) Smith.

He was a proud member of Masonic Lodge #246 in Garrettsville for 43 years, where he served as Worship Master in 1987-1988 and 1993-1994. Bob also served the 25th Masonic District as a District Education Officer from 1993-1996. He served as Excellent High Priest with the Silver Creek #144 R.A.M. as well as the 17th Capitular District as a District Deputy Grand High Priest.

Bob enjoyed traveling with his wife, family & friends. He enjoyed the National Parks and everything they have to offer. He loved to spend time working on his scroll saw and wood carving. Bob was an ornery man who loved his family immensely. He never said no when asked to help with anything anytime day or night. Bob also loved his dog, Emma, who has provided great joy to him and his wife.
