Folks,

Not sure how many of you remember Don Smith (tcm-668 on the board)? He owned Cobra R #152 and made it to a few of our events over the years. Don's father called me from Louisiana earlier this evening to let me know Don has sadly passed away. :(

He apparently had been suffering from several serious conditions, including high blood pressure. Although the cause of death is not yet confirmed, it is believed he likely suffered a heart attack. He was only 44 years old.

I had just spoken with him a couple of months ago. I had invited him to our SCMC XMAS Bash but he could not make it and I was checking in on him. He had recently moved to the Woodlands and was also working up there as well. As my office is also in the Woodlands, I suggested we get together for lunch some time. We unfortunately were never able to hook up due to scheduling conflicts.

Don was a great friend and lived life to the fullest. He will be missed.

Rest in Peace buddy!

Sorry to hear of this loss Andy, I didn't know Don but he sounds like a true enthusiast and great guy. That is way too young to leave this world from a heart attack.
