It is with great sadness the family of the Late Adrian Joseph Smith announce his passing on Monday, May 3rd, 2021 after a courageous battle with Cancer at the age of 72. Leaving to mourn with fond and loving memories are his daughters, Joanne (Tobin), Paula (Terry), Renee (Manuel), and Robyn (Kenny). He will be greatly missed by his six Grandchildren (his pride and joy); Evan; Alex; Lily; Jonah; Ayden; and Zander. Also leaving to mourn is his brother Patrick and sister Irene as well as nieces, nephews and other relatives and friends.

Adrian was predeceased by his parents Cyril and Mary Smith, his wife of many years Mary Gerbig and special friend Sheila Thorne.

Adrian was always good for a yarn and a clever story that entertained his family and friends.  Although his sense of humor was often on display, his loved ones also sought his wisdom and advice whenever they needed guidance.

The family will be welcoming family and friends on Wednesday May 5th, 2021 from the hours of 2-9 pm at Maher’s Funeral Home. A private funeral service will take place on Thursday May 6th, 2021 at Sacred Heart Church in Fox Harbour at 11am with Father Charlie Kelly officiating.  

The family would like to express a sincere thank you to the home care workers and public health nurses who provided exceptional care and compassion for Adrian, as well as the staff of the Palliative Care unit of Placentia.


         "Say not in grief, ‘he is no more’ but in thankfulness that he was."
