Danny Edward Smith

PORT ISABEL, TX. - Danny Edward Smith was born on December 26, 1952 in Bartlesville, Oklahoma, son of William Harvey Smith and Mary Ellen (Seybert) Smith. Danny spent the days of his youth engaging in innocent childhood shenanigans and occasionally a little trouble. He graduated from Col-Hi in 1971. He apprenticed to be a mason and spent all his life working in masonry and odd handyman jobs.
Danny always did life his way. Faith in his Lord Jesus was central to his life choices. He walked the four corners of the continental United States spreading the Good News of Jesus Christ and whole-heartedly believed he was called to do so.
Football season was all about his beloved Sooners. He celebrated their wins and grieved their losses.
He spent his last several years living a simple life on his houseboat, Treading Water, in Port Isabel, Texas and South Padre Island, with a community of close friends. He was healed and made whole when he entered heaven on Sunday ,the 15th of October 2023 after a sudden and brief illness.
Danny was preceded in death by his father, William Harvey Smith, and mother, Mary Ellen (Seybert) Smith.
Survivors include his sons ,Will (Bev) Smith and Casey (Julie) Smith; his daughter, Erika Smith; his grandchildren Abby, Jacob, Gabe, Stephen, Barrett, Ellie, Judah, and Emery Smith; and his siblings Diana (George) Snyder, Tom Smith, and Pamela Sue Smith.
Visiting hours will be held on Tuesday, the 17th of October 2023 between the hours of eleven o’clock in the morning and one o'clock in the afternoon within the Darling-Mouser Funeral Home Stateroom.

A Memorial Service will be held in Oklahoma at a later time and date to be determined.
