John Russell Smith Aug. 9, 1983 — July 9, 2013 John Russell Smith, 29, of Carmel, passed away on July 9, 2013. John was born in Nashville, Tenn., on Aug. 9, 1983, the son of John K. and Barbara (Hughey) Smith. John was employed as an auto repair technician by Worldwide Motors, Indianapolis. He graduated from Carmel High School, was a Lincoln Tech grad and had also attended Ivy Tech and IUPUI, hoping to one day earn an engineering degree. John was one of those rare individuals who seemed to simply know how to fix or repair things. There were few automotive problems he couldn’t identify and solve. He was a young man with a wide circle of friends and acquaintances. John would stop to help a stranger and was the first to be called if family or friends needed assistance. He was a kind, loving and supportive father, a playful and bedeviling big brother and a good son. Highly respected by his peers, deeply loved by his family and friends, our world is forever changed and diminished with the loss of his calm manner and quiet smile. John is survived by his daughter, Camille; his mother and father; brother, Lieutenant J.G. Michael Burrell Smith USN of Seattle, Wash.; grandmother, Constance M. Hughey of Owasso, Okla.; and many aunts, uncles and cousins. He was the grandson of the late Burrell G. and Mary Sue (Green) Smith of Mitchell and Bellaire, Mich. A celebration of life service was July 12 in the Carmel United Methodist Church. Cremation was chosen, with burial at a later date.
