Obituary for Larry Dick Smit

Larry D. Smit, 53, died December 21st, 2017, of a heart attack at his home in Lake Mills, Iowa.

Larry was born in Belmond, Iowa, on October 25th, 1964, to Gary and Sonja Smit. He was raised by his father and grandparents.

Larry had a passion for music, playing guitar, and spending time with family and loved ones. He could often be found spending time outdoors and riding bike. Those close to him knew that Larry would always offer a helping hand to anyone in need. Despite his love for life and love for others, Larry struggled with the disease of addiction his entire life, continuously trying to overcome this horrific disease.

Left to cherish his memory with unconditional love are his daughter, Aubrey, and her mother, Tammy Smit; children Amber, Dustin, and Jordan; stepson Chris Kelley; Ron Langfald, who was a father figure to him for many years; biological mother Sonja; sister Lisa Brix; brother Shawn Kniesly; grandson Elijah; special friends Alan and Beth Patton; and many other family members and friends.

Larry is preceded in death by his mother-in-law, Sandy Kelley; father Gary; and sister Erika Kniesly.

A celebration of life in honor of Larry will be held at a later date.

Condolences can be sent to Aubrey/Tammy Smit at 607 E. Main, Lake Mills IA 50450.
