Jerry Daniel Smith, passed away from this life on September 13, 2023, at the age of 51. Known to most as “JD”, he was born in Pauls Valley, Oklahoma, on August 8, 1972, to William J. Smith and Sharon Rose Smith. He attended high school in Moore, Oklahoma, and went on to become a welder for most of his working career. JD was employed at UE Manufacturing in Oklahoma City at his time of passing.
JD enjoyed fishing, particularly fishing farm ponds, and he especially loved going fishing with his dad. A lifelong lover of the outdoors, he also enjoyed hunting and riding his motorcycle on the open road. JD loved to cook, especially when he could grill out, and was known for his delicious grilled steaks and burgers. His favorite holiday was Halloween, and each year, JD looked forward to decorating his house, carving pumpkins, and picking out a costume. He enjoyed watching the OKC Thunder, but absolutely lived for football season and loved watching the OSU Cowboys and Notre Dame play on Saturdays. He also loved watching episodes of The Office and had a soft spot for Snoopy and Friends.
JD was a friendly person with a very loving, giving heart. Known by many for his wonderful humor, JD was an excellent joke-teller whose wit never failed to bring a smile to even the dourest of faces. Above all, he was a hard worker who always provided for his family. JD and Marie enjoyed going out to try new Japanese restaurants and they absolutely loved watching movies together. This lively, hardworking man touched the lives of many with his zest for life and his hilarious, witty sense of humor that could instantly light up a dark room. His love for his family and for his fellow man were an inspiration to many, and JD will be deeply missed and will remain forever in the hearts of all those he inspired.
He is preceded in death by his mother, Sharon Smith, and one son, Ty Austin.
Left to cherish his memory are his wife, Bebie Marie Smith, his son, Jax Bernados, and his father, Jerry Smith, all of Oklahoma City. JD is also survived by many loving extended family members and friends.
