Ronald L. Smith

VASSALBORO – Ronald L. Smith was born in Massachusetts, the son of Arthur and Blanche Smith, passed away May 23, 2023, peacefully with his wife by his side after a courageous battle with cancer at home.

Ronald, 75, a long-time resident of Vassalboro, had many careers in his lifetime, learning to do just about anything. He became involved with landscaping, and this was his passion for 30 years. He started his own business. He had many clients and was well known for his expertise and work ethics. Someone they could count on for any of their needs.

Ron enjoyed hunting and fishing when he was young but gave that up to just enjoy the wildlife. He also enjoyed camping and road trips to Florida with his family, and oh boy did he love his road trips to Rangeley and up north, as well as walks on the beach at the coast stopping at places to check out the scenery and new restaurants along the way.

Ron was predeceased by his parents Arthur and Blanche Smith of Vassalboro; brother, Reggie of Oregon, sister, Alice of Augusta; his first wife, June, in 1968 and second wife, Glennis, in 2012.

He is survived by his wife, Linda Whitney Smith of Vassalboro; his daughter, Stephanie Cormier of Augusta; Ron (Leon) Smith and wife of Pittston; and several grandchildren; stepdaughter, Vicki and stepson, Chad and wife; brothers Arthur, Jerry, Dennis, Virgil, and Warren Smith, sisters Linda, Jessica and Kathy.

The family would like to thank hospice for their support, especially Kerry Wilkins-Deming, Ron’s nephew Gregory Smith and wife Kelly, and Sherry Whitney. They were my rocks.

At Ron’s request there will be no service. There will be a celebration of life at a later date.

Arrangements are under the care of Dan and Scott’s Funeral Home.
