Leonard Ray Smith passed away on October 26, 2008 at Shasta Regional Hospital in Redding, following a short illness.
Leonard was born January 5, 1948 in Modesto, California and moved to Siskiyou County in 1981.
He loved the mountains and woods in this beautiful area as well as fishing, camping and hiking.
He was a life-long 49er fan and also an avid reader. He had a head full of trivia and rarely missed an answer on Jeopardy.
Most of all he loved spending time with his family.
Leonard is survived by his sister, Loretta Rybicki of Manteca, California; his brother, Clyde Smith Jr. of Ulala, Washington; his three children and their families, David Smith and Sarah Smith of Weed, California, and Leslie Blockman of Spokane, Washington. He had six grandchildren.
