Howard Paul Smith

March 2, 1935 – March 27, 2024

Howard was born on March 2, 1935, in Boardman, Ohio to Grace Genevieve Eyster and William Anthony Smith. He passed away peacefully Wednesday, March 27, 2024, at the age of 89 years old. He was able to spend his final days in comfort surrounded by close family.

He loved his family more than anything – and was so proud of his children, his nine brothers and sisters, his extended family on both the Smith and Gauer sides, and his deep roots in Youngstown and Dayton, Ohio – as well as Omaha, Nebraska.

While family was most important, Howard also enjoyed a successful career spending 32 years at NCR Corporation in computer sales, moving through the ranks of various Sales and Marketing roles.

Howard was preceded in death by his wife of 58 years Carol Sue (Gauer) Smith, whom he has now joined in everlasting peace. He was also preceded by his parents; sisters, Wilma Smith, Annabelle Yeaney, Helen Turnbull; and brothers, William Smith, Thomas Smith, and Carroll Smith.

He is survived by his children, Amy Henderson and Craig Smith (Christina); and grandchildren, Emma (Henderson) Launder (Jon), Mitchell Henderson, Eleanor Henderson, Connor Smith, Maddie Smith, and Emily Smith.

Visitation begins Tuesday, April 2nd, 9:30 a.m., followed by Mass of Christian Burial at 10 a.m., at Holy Cross Catholic Church, 4810 Woolworth Ave.
