Will Smith was a loving and proud father, devoted husband and fun Pop Pop (Grandfather). He passed away peacefully on July 14th at the age of 67. After graduation from Nathan Hale High School Will joined the Air Force then returned to Seattle and graduated from UW. He worked as an underwriter and was involved in several nonprofits including groundbreaking work in the  promotion of the Alaskan Native Art community.

He was an entrepreneur at heart, compassionate and as he would say “irrationally optimistic”.
