Donald "Bucky" Smith

May 9, 1965 ~ August 4, 2017 (age 52)

ANDOVER - Donald Wilton Smith, Jr., “Bucky”, passed away peacefully Friday (Aug.4, 2017) surrounded by loved ones after a long, courageous battle with pancreatic cancer.  He leaves his loving wife of 25 years, Kelly (Gardner) Smith; their three daughters, Kylee, Jenna (and her fiancé, Mathew Valenti) and Sarah (and her boyfriend, Michael Cook); his parents; mother, Kathleen (Grimes) Smith, father, Donald W. Smith, Sr. and stepmother, Brenda Smith; his brother, Darren Smith and his girlfriend, Melaine Ho; and numerous extended family and countless friends that he considered family.  He loved being in the garage; whether it be “on the clock” managing an auto body shop or at home.  Bucky was active on the motocross circuit, traveling far and wide.  He enjoyed being outdoors as well, especially fishing and target shooting.  His greatest joy was found in spending time with family and friends or lending a helping hand to anyone in need.  The family will receive guests 5 - 8 PM Friday (Aug. 11th) at the Aurora-McCarthy Funeral Home, 167 Old Hartford Road, Colchester.  Graveside Services will be observed 11 AM Saturday (Aug. 12th) directly at Townsend Cemetery, Townsend Road, Andover.
