One of our Chiefs families suffered an unimaginable loss this week. Our hearts are with Major Midget Eric Smith and his parents Denise and Dave as they mourn the sudden loss of Eric's older brother Nick.
Suddenly, on Sunday, October 6, 2019 of Lucan, at the age of 20. Cherished son of David and Denise (Ward) Smith of Lucan. Proud brother of Eric Smith. Much loved grandson of John and Patricia Ward of Lucan, and the late Harold and Evelyn (Buzz) Smith. Loved by his nana and papa Shirley and Douglas Harrower of Hensall. Devoted nephew of Scott and Tammy Harris of Hensall; Gayle and Ed Fox, Russell Smith, Wayne and Heather Smith, Bob and Brenda Smith, Harold and Mary Smith, and Peter and Patty Smith all of Lucan, Sharon Smith, and Paul and Cheri Smith all of Exeter, Larry Smith of Rodney, Sharon and Tony Martens of Goderich, Darlene and Rick Forrest of RR 3 Ailsa Craig, and Jeanette Smith and Doug House of Crediton. Special cousin of Chloe, and Aiden Harris, Justin and Erin Ross, Jason Smith, Brittany Babbage, and Ritchie Forrest. Nick will be deeply missed by several cousins, extended family, and his many friends. Dear friend of Tatyana Edwards. He will be missed by his pup Tucker, and lizard Randall.
Nick was completing his electrical apprenticeship with Selectra Inc. He was a hard-working and determined young man. His infectious smile and red hair will be missed by so many, both at the rink with the Lucan Irish and the Medway Cowboys, or on the baseball field with the Lucan-Ilderton Athletics and the Medway Cowboys.
Visitation will be held at Haskett Funeral Home, 223 Main Street, LUCAN on Wednesday from 2 – 4 and 6 – 9 PM. The funeral service will be held at the Lucan Community Memorial Centre, 263 Main Street, Lucan on Thursday, October 10th at 11 AM.
In Nick’s memory, donations to Canadian Mental Health Association, or the Lucan Irish Jr. C Hockey Club would be appreciated by the family.
