Obituary

Smith, Robert Michael, 60, Windber, passed away surrounded by his family on April 12, 2022, 436 days after being diagnosed with Glioblastoma or brain cancer. He was born July 26, 1961 in Windber. Son of Robert and Theresa (Stefano) Smith. Preceded in death by mother, granddaughter Aubrey Lynn Smith and maternal and paternal grandparents. Survived by his father Robert and soul mate and wife of 34 years Alice (St.Clair) Smith. Children Michael Smith and Samantha, wife of John McQuillen,  granddaughters Jadelynn Smith and Paisley Hull and brother Greg and wife Marisa (Zindash) Smith. Also survived by many nieces and nephews as well as sisters-in-law Donna Lape, Patty (Don) Sechler and Gloria (Jesse) Stevanus. And his lifelong best friend Wade Horner. The highlight of Bob’s life was opening his own business in 1999. He owned and operated East End Lock Service until cancer made him unable to do so January 2021. He enjoyed helping people and loved his customers. He really enjoyed tinkering with old locks and safes. He lived for his kids and granddaughters. Jade and Paisley could get anything they wanted just by asking “Pappy.” Glioblastoma has robbed us of our husband, father, pappy, brother, son, uncle and friend. A very kind and gentle soul left us way too soon. A very special thank you to Gloria Stevanus and Valorie Lehman who cared for Bob the past 8 months. The family would like to thank Dr. Bencie, Dr. Tunio, Dr. Sbeitan, Jen Pevelko, Kayla McCall and all their staff for their kindness and care of Bob. The family will receive friends from 2 to 8 pm Friday and from 12 noon until time of service at 1:30 pm at Meek & Dalla Valle Funeral Home, Windber. Pastor Joe Brown officiating. In lieu of flowers monetary contributions may be made to the Cambria County Humane Society in memory of Bob. Bob loved his animals, especially dogs. Bob was the most casual person so please feel free to wear jeans and a t-shirt. www.meekfuneralhome.com
