Jonathan Lennon Smith

October 22, 1984April 3, 2018

Jonathan Lennon Smith was born in Charlotte, North Carolina on October 22, 1984 and passed away at the age of 33 on April 1, 2018.

Jonathan was a son, brother, nephew, cousin, and friend, but the title he loved the most was Daddy.

He leaves behind a beautiful daughter, Hannah, who he loved and treasured with all his heart and soul. Jonathan was kind, caring, and compassionate, and always put the needs of others above his own. His smile was contagious and he loved bringing joy to others.

Jonathan loved being in nature and you could often find him fishing, hiking, and camping. He spent time hiking the Appalachian Trail and he shared his love of nature with Hannah. Although he sometimes felt alone, in actuality, he was deeply loved and cared about by more people than he knew. The feelings and thoughts inside his head were overpowering and he succumbed to the mental illness that he bravely lived with for so many years.

We know he will continue to watch over Hannah as she grows and will always be her guardian angel. We take comfort in knowing that he is no longer in pain and that his beautiful mind is now at rest.

It was much sadness when I learned of Jonathan's passing. I met Jonathan through my sons, Chris and Jon. He spent many nights in our home, when we lived in Charlotte. Hannah was his pride and joy. He will be sorely missed. My thoughts and prayers with his family and loved ones.
