Warren Scott Smith was born on May 15, 1960, in Milbank, SD. He was the son of Dewey Edward Smith and Phyllis Augusta (Kohn) Smith. He used Scott as his primary name and grew up in rural Marvin, SD, and graduated from Milbank High School. Scott took care of his mother for many years. He was a happy-go-lucky man who never met a stranger and loved to visit. He remembered everybody he met, had an infectious personality and was always happy. He had a positive attitude and a strong faith in God. He enjoyed cheering for the Minnesota Vikings and the Green Bay Packers. He always loved to fish, hunt, and ride his ATV. His childhood was sprinkled with a variety of pet animals, his black Lab, Bub, playing with his nieces and nephews, his favorite Transformer toys, along with TV favorites: The Dukes of Hazzard, Hee Haw, and Star Trek. He never missed a Star Wars movie. Scott proudly supported the Marvin Volunteer Fire Department and helped with fundraiser activities.
Scott became a very accurate black powder shooter and spent many happy hours target shooting with his brothers in the nearby gravel pit. He was always the person with a camera in hand at family gatherings/reunions and loved taking pictures. He looked forward to the annual trips to Montana meeting up with his uncle and cousin from Seattle to go prairie dog hunting, attend The Fort Sisseton Historical Festival, and area threshing shows. The highlight of his summer was always the week of camping with his friends at NeSoDak. Scott always had music on and liked all genres, but Johnny Cash and The Statler Brothers were special favorites.
Left to cherish his memory are his siblings: Gayle Fountain of Luverne, MN; Rodney Smith and Roger Smith, both of Marvin, SD; and several nieces, nephews, and friends. He was preceded in death by his parents: Dewey and Phyllis, sister-in law, Vicky Smith; and brother-in-law, Robert Fountain.
