Obituary of Frank R. Smith, Jr.

Frank Robert Smith, Jr., 18 months, of Simpson, PA, died Wednesday, May 5, 2021 at home.

Born October 18, 2019 in Honesdale, PA, he is the son of Frank Robert Smith and Ashley Gonsauls Smith of Simpson, PA.

Frankie will be remembered for his smile that could light up anyone's day. He loved meeting people when out at a store and he would constantly wave to everyone until he got someone's attention to wave back. Once he caught their attention his grin and laugh made that person smile from ear to ear. Frankie loved playing with his toys, especially his trucks. He especially loved getting pushed around in the back of his big dump truck. Frankie was the highlight of anyone's day and his special charm that melted your heart will be forever missed. He loved being with his brother and sisters and he would get so silly and excited when they would play together.

His mother writes, "Frankie you are the most precious baby boy anyone could have wanted and asked for. From the moment I found out I was pregnant with you, you had my heart and a piece of my heart went with you when you were taken away from us so suddenly. This is the hardest thing we all are going through but you will always be with us Bubbie. We miss you so much and forever will. Grandma's got her angel with her now, so please watch over the rest of us until we meet again and I can wrap you around my arms and never let go. We love you Bubbie, always and forever."

He is survived by one brother: Brayden Elders; two sisters: Hailey and Katelynn Smith; grandparents: Reginald and Ruth Gonsauls of Forest City, PA; great grandmother: Jean Kossman of Forest City, PA; several aunts, uncles and cousins.

He was also preceded in death by his grandparents: Sophie and Robert Smith.
