April 3, 1968—October 25, 2016
Michael Darron Smith passed away last year, on October 25, 2016. He was born on April 3, 1968, in Salt Lake City to Mary Martina Wilding Smith and Michael Wayne Smith. Throughout his life Darron was an extraordinarily kind and caring soul, and he was at his happiest when helping others. He was an avid gamer, and he loved the outdoors—especially pine forests. To simply say Darron was an animal lover is an understatement; his pets were his children, and he loved them with all of his heart. Darron is survived by Randall Soderquist (husband), Mary Wilding Smith (mother), Michael Smith (father), Jeremy (brother) and Brandy Smith, Frances Smith (paternal grandmother), Geoffrey and Brianna (niece) Fisher, Kaitlyn Smith (niece), Contessa and Isabella (furry daughters), and many loving aunts, uncles and cousins. He was preceded in death by Howard “Hap” and Dorothy Wilding (maternal grandparents), Jesse Smith (paternal grandfather), Shinen Sune Quan-Yin (furry daughter), and Chinook (furry son). A gathering of family and friends in remembrance of Darron’s life will be held on October 25, 2017, at 1:00 p.m. at Memorial Mountain View Cemetery, 3115 East Bengal Blvd, Cottonwood Heights, Utah.
