David Sidney Smith, 79, of Crystal Lake, IL passed away on Saturday, May 28th surrounded by his family.

Dave was the loving husband of Pamela Peterson Smith; devoted father of Dave Jr., Michael (Heather Oberrieder) and late Carrie Lynn Kenney (Curtis); proud and caring Grandfather of Ella and Ava; dear brother of Rick, Kathy and the late Thomas Smith and Bruce Smith.

Dave was born in Oak Park, Illinois on May 4th 1943, to the late Tom and Doris King Smith. Dave graduated from Oak Park River Forest High School in 1961. While still in high school Dave met the love of his life and best friend Pamela before attending Western Illinois University. Dave served 6 years in the Army reserves while starting a family, and working at the Oak Park police Department, a job he loved and had very fond memories of. In 1977 Dave and Pam moved to Crystal Lake, IL (1977 - 2015) and joined his father and siblings at Central States Microfilming. The family business would turn out to be fruitful, allowing Dave to raise his family and set roots. While residing in Crystal Lake Dave perused his passion for golf, playing 5 rounds per week for 35 years. When not golfing, Dave played 16”softball, bowled, camped, boated - sail and motor, played racquetball, darts, and handball, snow skied, water skied, played flag football, hunted, did target shooting and road motorcycles.  Since 2015 Dave and Pam have lived in Camdenton, MO where they moved to enjoy more time with Michael and his wife Heather, and their two precious granddaughters Ella and Ava.

Dave and Pam loved to socialize and especially cherished the friends they made through Newcomers of Crystal Lake. The Newcomers have spent so much time with Pam and Dave that they have truly become part of their already large family. Pam, Michael, Heather and David Jr. would love give a nice warm hug to all of those who have supported Pam and Dave via the Newcomers.

Visitation will be Saturday the 11th of June from 11-2 at Cary Country Club, 2400 Grove Lane, Cary, IL 60013.
