February 21, 1984 ~ January 16, 2020 (age 35)


Adam Michael Smith was born February 21, 1984 in Artesia, California.  The son of Marc and Theresa Smith, he was the oldest of four children.  His earliest years were spent in California and Utah, after which he and his family moved to the Palouse in 1993. 

                He attended school in Potlatch, Idaho where he and his family lived until 1996.  Thereafter the family moved to Palouse, Washington.  He attended Gar-Pal Middle School and High School until graduating in 2002.  He played football and basketball and enjoyed history and art.

                After graduation he worked a series of jobs for local building contractors before starting his own business two years ago.  He and his fiancé Andrea Gonzalez and her son Jackson had started their life together in their new home in Palouse recently.

                Adam could be extremely funny and aggravating to family, friends, and foes.  He loved playing guitar, drawing, reading and camping.  Though raised a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, he chose not to affiliate with any religion as an adult.  He is survived by his brother David and wife Katie of Anchorage, AK; one sister Michelle and husband Eric Stoddard of College Station, TX; and brother Scott of Pullman, WA.  His parents and fiancé still reside in Palouse.  Besides his eight nieces and nephews, he is also survived by dozens of cousins, aunts, and uncles. He is now in the arms of loved ones who have gone before him.

Funeral service will be held on Saturday, January 25, 2020, 1:00 P.M. at the Garfield - Palouse High School Gymnasium.  Burial will follow at the Greenwood Cemetery, Palouse, WA.

A potluck dinner will be served at the Palouse Community Center after the Service.
