Obituary For Jeffrey D. Smith

Jeffrey D. Smith age 51 of Fairfield Township passed away Saturday September 25, 2021. He was born June 5, 1970 in Springfield, Ohio. Jeff was first and foremost a Christian who loved our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He was a graduate of Woodhaven High School in 1988 and the Ohio State University in 2004. He was employed for 14 years at Verizon Wireless, most recently as a principal engineer on the network planning team. Jeff’s main passion was spending time with his children.

Some of Jeff’s other hobbies included fishing (especially with his best friend Mason), riding his motorcycle, being a part of Volusia Riders, and watching OSU Football.
