Kenneth "Ken" J. Smith, 72, of Roachdale, Indiana passed away on Sept. 5, 2020 at his home.

He was born on Jan. 9, 1948 in Harrisburg to the late Harold and Norma Jean (Henry) Smith. He married Georgean (Teper) Smith on Nov. 5, 1994 in Carol Stream, Illinois, and she survives.

Ken was self-employed all of his life working as a photographer, insurance agent and car salesman. He loved cars, especially his 1967 Chevelle, motorcycles, going to auctions, camping, squirrel hunting, his dog Simon, and being outdoors.

He will be greatly missed by his dear family and so many friends. He was a member of the Masonic Lodge for more than 25 years.

He was preceded in death by his parents, aunts, uncles, and brother-in-law, Kevin Wright.

There will be a celebration of life service at a later date.
