Richard Lee Smith, 44 years old, was found deceased in Tucson on September 12, 2017.
Richard was born at Raymond W. Bliss hospital at Ft. Huachuca, Arizona on January 31, 1973.
He is predeceased by his biological father Flemmie Richard Hults, his adopted father James Edward Smith, grandparents Hults and grandparents Stroud.
He is survived by his mother Debbie Welvaert, step-father Bernaert Welvaert, and two daughters Zoey and Kiaira Ludwig-Smith.
Rick professed Jesus Christ as his Lord and Saviour and partook of water baptism many years ago.
Even tho the demons of hell took his physical body from this life – we know his soul and spirit reside in heaven.

We love you Rick and will see you in heaven when we get there.
