Mark Smith

Mark Roland Smith, 53, of Davis, CA, died at home on Saturday, March 21, 2009 after a brief illness.

Mark was born in Portland, Oregon on March 28, 1955. In 1958 he moved to California with his parents, Roland and Meryllene and his sister Linda. He graduated from Davis High School in 1973 and then spent six years in the U.S. Air Force, serving in Texas, Mississippi, and Alaska as a Radar Technician.

After leaving the Air Force Mark attended Sacramento City College, graduating with Presidents Honors. He was employed as an Electronics Technician in the computer and electronic field for several years, later moving back to Davis, residing in the family home.

Mark loved computers, the outdoors, the family cabin, and his neighborhood where he took special pride in his gardening skills, chatting with neighbors and helping them with computer problems.

Mark is survived by his mother, Meryllene, his sister Linda Alexander of Anacortes, Washington, his nephew Casey Cagle and wife Becky of Forest Ranch, CA, his great niece Kaitlyn Cagle and great-great nephew, Taven Schaeffer, of Paradise, CA. Additionally, his Aunt Helen Gebhard, Aunt Mary Lou Gebhard, Uncle Norman and Aunt Joyce Smith will miss Mark, along with cousins in Oregon and California.

Mark will really be missed at his cabin in Kyburz. He was a kind man and was always there to help anyone who needed a hand. Iam sure right now he is in Heavean tending the gardens.

It is with deep sadness that we learned of the passing of Mark. Having watched him mature from early childhood to middle age, it is hard to believe that he has passed on. Our most sincere sympathies go out to the family.

When I read, last night, that Mark had died, I was in shock. The little rambunctious toddler, the bright and alert kid growing up; I otherwise didn't know him, except through you. You told me what it meant to you to have him there for you and Roland and since then whan you have been close.I can only imagine how you will miss him. I can only offer sympathy and love. Ginger

My heart aches for you Meryllene and for all your family. May you find strength in these difficult times. May you also find comfort in knowing that Mark lived a full life and was loved by so many. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help. Elaine
