David N. Smith, 69, of Superior, passed away Monday, Aug. 15, 2016, at Silver Bay Veteran’s Home from complications of frontotemporal dementia.

David grew up in Superior, with his summers spent in Lake Nebagamon, and graduated from Superior East High School and the University of Wisconsin-Superior.

He enjoyed working with his hands, and could fix almost anything. David was witty, supportive, and most of all loving to his family, he will be dearly missed.
