It is with great sorrow and sadness we announce the passing of Smith after a courageous battle with cancer. The eldest of Stewart and Helen Hart's twelve children, he was an accomplished professional wrestler who made significant contributions to the Stampede Wrestling promotion. He will be remembered by many of the younger generation of wrestling performers that he trained and influenced throughout his career. Smith is survived by his four children: Tobi, Tania, Matthew, and Chad and his three grandchildren: Jessica, Amanda, and Isabella. He will be forever loved and missed by his children, grandchildren, remaining siblings, numerous nieces and nephews, and all of those whose lives he touched. A Service of Remembrance to honour Smith's life will be held at the Calgary Marlborough Community Association, 636 Marlborough Way N.E. Calgary, Alberta on Monday, July 10, 2017 at 1:00 p.m. Memorial donations in Smith's memory may be made directly to the Prostrate Cancer Centre To send condolences to the family, please visit

Dear Hart Family, so sorry for your loss. Smith was indeed one of a kind special soul. Last saw him at Ernest Manning High School closure reunion. Yes, remember well the black limo making the stops at Westgate Elementary, Vincent Massey JH and Ernest Manning HS. If you missed it you would have to walk home! Dean used to walk me home and my mother loved his big brown eyes. As well recall Stu shopping at Safeway after hours pushing several carts full of goodies. Spent time at the mansion with all the family and pets running about. And of course those beautiful family portraits of the children in the library. Sending you all much Love, Light and Blessings. The bells are tolling for its new angel. Oxob

Smith was such a wonderful encouragement to so many indie workers. After one of Scott's matches, Smith came to him and said: "matches like that are why I'm still a fan."
Those words meant, and continue to mean everything to Scott, and to me by extensions.
I'm so sorry for your loss, Hart family. Thank you for making Smith the person he was.

Our deepest condolences to the Hart family. I met Smith a few times and he was always very kind, congenial, a caring soul. May he rest in peace. ~ GJ Rachael Patterson, author of Homeland Lost & Sister to Martha (nee Patterson) Hart
