Stephen Edward Smith

Stephen Edward Smith, 79, of Keene, left this world peacefully on Tuesday, March 23, 2021, at the Mercy Living Center in Tupper Lake. Steve was born to Napoleon “Buck” Smith (aka the Old Man, which he fondly called his dad) and Anita LeClair Smith on July 30, 1941. He grew up in Keene surrounded by many relatives in the Little House on the Gilmore Hill Road. After high school, he joined the United States Army to serve our country proudly. Steve enjoyed a wide array of trades and hobbies, including auto mechanics, auto body, carpentry, masonry, gardening, maple syrup production and berry harvesting. He was pretty much a Jack of all trades, master of everything — as he said. Steve was also an avid outdoorsman who loved hunting and fishing in the Adirondack Mountains. He was a great storyteller, for those who didn’t know this, and was quite the comedian. He loved helping people, and most would say, “Steve would give you the shirt off his back, if you needed it, but not the hat off his head.” This was very true about Steve. One of Steve’s favorite things to do was play horseshoes with his uncles and cousins on the back hill or share a conversation over a cold beer in hand. (His hands were the size of bear paws, by the way.)
