Tracy L. Smith

January 24, 1961 — September 1, 2023

Tracy L. Smith, 62, passed away on Friday, September 1, 2023 at St. Joseph Regional Medical Center, Plymouth.

Born on January 24, 1961 in South Bend, Indiana he was the son of John and Winifred (Gardner) Smith. He attended LaVille High School graduating with the class of 1980.

He worked for Milestone driving tri-axle dump trucks for 28 years. Stopping into Clark Gas Station one day, he noticed a wonderful woman named Jacki and he asked her out for coffee and they would spend the next 20 years together.

Most would tell you that Tracy never knew a stranger and he loved to talk for hours, so plan accordingly when tagging along with him. In fact, that was probably his strongest attribute, his willing to care for others with his gentle and kind heart, to tell a joke or to get someone going just enough by “poking at the bear,” with his sarcastic humor to get a good laugh in.

He enjoyed everything there was about the outdoors, especially when it came to riding and building ramps for his dirt bikes or riding his Harley.

He is survived by his fiancé Jacki Larimore of Plymouth; daughter Jillian (Skyler) Smith of Plymouth; sister Beth (Dennis) Griffey of Lakeville; twin brother Terry Smith of Phoenix, AZ; step-children: Rachael (Sean) Brust, Jaidlyn and Pierce Larimore; best buddy Bodhi Larimore, granddaughter Stevie Holland, nieces: Lydia (Ferhat) Smith-Turkmenoglu of Dublin, IRL; Stefania Smith of Tanzania, AFR; nephew Jeremiah (Songeun Lee) of Paros,GR;  Josh (Alice) George and Jessica (Seth) George; great-nephews: Atlas and Jansen, in-laws Joe (Ricki) Garrison.

Tracy is preceded in death by his parents, brother Timothy R. Smith.

A celebration of life will be held on Sunday, September 10, 2023 at the Plymouth Wesleyan Church, 11203 Michigan Rd, Plymouth, IN 46563 from 3-6 pm.
