A beloved son, brother, grandson, nephew, cousin and friend, Zachary Smith left this world unexpectedly on May 4, 2021. Born August 17, 2000 in Middletown, Ohio, Zach grew up in Oxford, Ohio and graduated from Talawanda High School in 2019. Zach was a source of light and will be remembered for his sense of compassion, love for fishing and the laughter he brought to all those around him.
Zach is preceded by his grandparents Ronald Smith Sr and Yvonne Tibbs.
Zach is survived by his parents Ronald Jr and Tammy Smith, brothers Jesse and Patrick (Allyson) Smith, grandparents Bobby Tibbs and Vivian McClain, and many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends who loved him dearly.
Zach decided to be an organ donor and even though his precious life was cut far too short, he is going to give life to many through his willingness to help others. His strong and giving heart will prolong another’s life and beat for many years to come. When you think of Zach, celebrate the good memories you have together with him. Remember that life is fragile and should be lived to the fullest.
Visitation will be Sunday, May 16, 2021 from 1p.m. until time of the Celebration of Life Service at 3 p.m.at Ogle Paul Young Funeral Home, 5086 College Corner Pike, Oxford, Ohio 45056.
