Smith, Livain

Livain Smith

Sunday, April 22 was a beautiful, warm, sunny day. One of those days Dad, Livain Smith, enjoyed, a day to be outside and riding his scooter around town. Then, hours later, he suddenly was gone, quietly and unexpectedly.
That is also how he came to this province, quietly and unexpectedly and without one word of English in the early 1950s.
Dad managed to learn English but he never lost his French accent from Sprucebrook, New Brunswick, where he was born on July 10, 1931.
Dad had many different jobs but he most loved to operate heavy duty machinery for road construction and paving and also worked for the MD of Willow Creek for many years in the same field of work.
Dad loved old cars and he had just enjoyed the car show in Fort Macleod on April 21.
Dad was very sociable and made a habit of having coffee out with his many friends.
Livain made Fort Macleod his home where he met and married Florence Scott (Smith) in 1955. Together, they had five children: Chris, Lyle (Martha), Mike and Brian Smither and Norma (Alfredo) Pena.
Livain is also survived by four grandchildren: Amy (Brad), Honour, Adam (Francy) Turuk, Marshal and Duncan Smith.
Livain passed away Monday, April 23 and will be sorely missed
