Obituary of Robert D. Smith, Jr.

Rouses Point – Robert Daniel “Bob” Smith, Jr., 61, of Lakeview Avenue in Rouses Point passed away unexpectedly on Sunday, May 27, 2018 at the UVM Health Network, CVPH, Plattsburgh.


Bob was born at the Portsmouth, NH Naval base to Robert Daniel, Sr. and Marcia Ellen (Connell) Smith. From birth, Bob was born under the yoke of affliction, a yoke that he wore with dignity, poise and a great love for his fellow man. He moved often due to his father’s 40 year military and law enforcement careers, but he took on all obstacles and was a proud graduate from Sweetwater High School of National City, CA. Bob loved his family and cousins and would spend a week each year with his uncle Buddy in Kittery Pt., Me. After his mother passed , Bob lived in Rouses Point for the last year and a half, and during that time he made lasting impressions on all. Bob loved the attention he got from all of the Rouses Point food personnel.


Bob’s family would like to extend a special thanks to Best Friend restaurant that would bring Bob to laughter for not giving him a menu but instead reading to him everything that he always ordered without missing an item (Bob never had to say a word); to Sandy’s Deli for Bob’s almost every day go to deliveries; to Lisa from Maskell’s Hair Hut, Bob never minded getting his hair cut by you; to the beautiful ladies at Community Bank in Champlain, Bob could never get over being recognized and never being grilled over identification for a simple transaction. Bob thoroughly enjoyed the entire village and surrounding area.


It is said that a soul sheds its afflictions when it enters heaven, with the grace of God, those of us that knew Bob will someday be greeted by him again, but then greeted by an unencumbered Bob, a Super Bob.


In addition to his parents, Bob was predeceased by his sister-in-law, Nancy; favorite aunt, BJ; and Uncle Buddy as well as other aunts and uncles.


Bob is survived by his brothers, Matt and Kevin; nieces, Lauren (Tyler) and Caitlin (Dan); nephew, Matthew; cousins, Sheryl, Sarah, Lea, Kim, Michelle, and cousin/”little sister”, Cathy.


At Bob’s request, private services will be held in Magnolia, AZ. Rest easy sweet brother.


Arrangements are in the care of the Hamilton Funeral Home, 793 Gilbert Road, Mooers, 236-4747.
