Brian Smith (64)

It is with profound sadness that we the family of Brian Smith announce his sudden passing in Indianapolis, IN on February 10, 2022. Brian passed away peacefully surrounded by his family.

Born in Montreal, Quebec, Oct 4, 1957, Brian spent most of his life living and working in Ontario, Canada. Brian was a loyal employee of Kodak Canada for 26 years. Brian loved fishing and boating. He shared many fond memories with friends on annual fishing trips and many early mornings and days were spent on the Severn Falls River with his children. Brian loved to travel to the Caribbean in search of the beach and warm sun. After moving to Indiana, Brian became interested in building model train sets. Brian will be most remembered for his quick-witted humour, love of dogs and country music.

Predeceased by his parents John V. Smith and Margaret (Sutton) Smith and older brother John F. Smith. Comfort can be found in knowing he is reunited with first-born son, Darren Brian Smith who passed away of cancer in 2017.

Brian is survived by his daughter, Lindsey (Jamie) MacIntosh, son, John (Faith) Smith, his two grandchildren, Finley and Fallyn MacIntosh, partner Melissa Flores and her extended family. Brian will be greatly missed by his twin brother and best friend Grant Smith, niece and nephew Candice and Kelly and the rest of the Smith family.

The family of Brian Smith would like to genuinely thank the Neuro/Surgical/Trauma ICU team at Ascension St. Vincent Hospital in Indianapolis for their professionalism, outstanding care and compassion.

  3. Brian you and my sister might not have been married but will always be considered my brother in law you took care of her through everything and I appreciate that more than anything love you and miss you

  4. Brian was a wonderful & hardworking neighbor who always kept his yard looking nice. He and Melissa took great pride in their property. He was always smiling or waving and spoke FREQUENTLY about his love for Melissa. She meant a great deal to him. Brian loved his children and his dogs sincerely which was really nice to see. He gave my son his first bike and talked to them about his trains. He will be sorely missed. Melissa, we got you in any way needed! ❤️ We send our prayers to his family, friends and co workers as well. Revelation 21:4

  5. Brian you have meant the world to me over the last 15+ Years. A part of me is with you and always will be. You will forever be in my heart and mind. I love you. Rest In Peace my love

  6. Brian, was a Very nice man who told jokes all the time and was full of joy.

    Our EHOB family will deeply miss him. He was known for being tough and driving results through others, while maintaining a high level of quality products. He was also known for being that gentle teddy bear and a shoulder to lean on. His employees were extremely dedicated and loyal to him.

    On his day of passing – his second shift employees dedicated their performance to him. They set the record for most parts produced in a shift that night. The following night – he was celebrated with a prayer vigil and a memorial balloon launch.

    His presence in EHOB will be greatly missed !

    Thoughts and Prayers to the Family for your loss.

  7. Dear Melissa,
    We are sorry for your loss, and we are sending prayers and condolences to help you and the family at this difficult time, we are your cyber friends and always will be. One day, we would love to meet you, so if you ever get to the East Coast, look us up.
    God Be with You and your families as go through this nightmare.

  8. Thank you taking me in during my hardest time and treating me like a true daughter.

    I’ll never forget us spending all day outside during the summer just enjoying the sun; 2am talks about your life growing up and other stuff because a scene in a movie reminded me of a question; always making sure I had what I needed whether it be rides, coming to save me at 5am because I locked my keys in my car or coming to save me at 10pm because I couldn’t get the ice off my windows lol; deciding to randomly push missy’s buttons because it was funny (and it was always funny to us); and much more.

    I’m glad I had to chance to spend the last three years living with you and watched our bond get closer every day. Even missy got to the point of saying we were just like each other (especially when we would agree her shows suck).

    I love you and I’ll miss you. I’ll always remember the last phone call we had and I hope you know that you’ll always be a father to me, so thank you for that.

  9. Brian:
    May you rest in peace. I remember when we first met in high school and shortly after graduation we were married for 22 years. The memories of your family and our own family will remain in my heart forever. I can see you now joined with your Mom and Dad. You and your brother Jon out fishing. The Sunday dinners. My greatest comfort is you have joined Darren. May you watch over your daughter in this difficult time as well today and always as she now has two Angels up above. Give Darren a big hug for me. RIP.
