Donald Dean Smith


January 25, 1959 - October 24, 2012

Don Smith, age 53, of SeaTac Washington, passed away at his home in Pacific Beach, Washington where he lived with his life partner, Tim Dunn. Don was a true gift to all that knew him! Don will be remembered as a loving life partner, brother and friend. Don immersed himself in the here and now and gave himself, wholeheartedly to whatever was at hand. Don loved giving back to his community in Pacific Beach by volunteering his time to the Museum of the North Beach, the Kite Festival, the Haunted House and helping his loving neighbors and friends when needed. Don’s truest gift of all was the act to love unconditionally.
