Steven D. Smith, age 59, of Barry, IL passed away on Thursday, October 1, 2020 at his home. He was born on August 6, 1961 in Pittsfield, IL to William E. and Patsy Ann (Constable) Smith. He married Chris Sappington in 1992 and later married Michelle Foreman in 2015.

Steve graduated from Barry High School in 1979 and then went to Wyoming to attend technical school and received an Automotive Technician Degree. After school, Steve was employed by Callender’s Construction, Central Stone and Beard Implement. Steve was an outdoorsman who loved yard work; and always enjoyed boating, fishing, riding his motorcycle and 4-wheeler. He was always up for a trip to the ocean and enjoying a cold beer with friends and family. Steve could fix anything and was mechanically inclined; he loved spending time with his brother and best friend, Randy whom he spent many hours with working on cars together. In earlier years, he helped with Boy Scouts and always enjoyed camping with friends and family. Steve was a big-hearted guy who was always just a phone call away when you needed help. Most of all, Steve was a devoted father and grandfather who always made sure his family was his #1 priority.

He is survived by his mother, Patsy Ann; sons, Cole Smith of Barry, IL and Collin Smith of Quincy, IL; daughter, Carly (Traye) Labby of Pearl, IL; grandchildren, Braelyn Labby and Bostyn Labby; brother, David Smith of Barry, IL; and sister, Chris (Kyle Estell) McConnell of Concord, IL.
