His par- ents were Seymour and Louise Smith He attended primary grades at the Supe- rior and Lincoln schools, then went to Greenville High School where he ran track and played in the band. While he attended high school he worked on a ranch and milked 25 cows in the morning before class- es. At night, he wotdd ride a saddle horse to watch the show in town. Smith has numerous sto- ries abouthis life in Indian Valley. In his youth he fished, hunted and trapped. Later he felled timber and worked at the lumber yard. Then he turned to ranching, which became his lifetime work. Smith did a stint in the ArmY as a paratrooper and gliderman in World War II. He helped start building the rodeo grounds in Tay- lorsville, and he spent sev- eral years and countless hours helping his children and the others in Indian Valley with 4-H. He and his wife Gladys raised six children and have many grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren. In 2003, Smith lost his beloved wife after 58 years of marriage. A year later he married his second wife, Vernadine, a Nevada Native American. The two managed to spend several years dividing their time between the old Cres- cent Mills ranch with grandson Monte Smith and wife Lisa and their two chil- dren, Farris and Corte, and their Nevada home. The last few months the majority of their time has been spent in Nevada, where they are closer to medical services. "You can take a man out of Indian Valley, but that is where his heart remains," Smith said.
