Jace Brandon Smith
August 21, 1986 to March 29, 2017
Jace Brandon Smith, age 30, passed from this life to the next on March 29, 2017 in Muskogee. Jace was born August 21, 1986 in Tahlequah Hospital to Donna and Kirby Smith. He attended first Hulbert Public Schools then later Hilldale Schools and graduated in 2005. Jace met Natalie Fish when they were 15 years old. It began a life-long partnership which continued until his death.
Jace dealt with a degenerative retinal disease that gradually robbed him of his sight. But he lived his life on his own terms and in his own way. He enjoyed various hobbies; including balloon twisting and epic fantasy fiction; with a particular interest in Muskogee’s Renaissance Festival. There, he was simply known as “the balloon guy”. Jace will always be remembered as a gentle, kind soul with a ready smile.
He is remembered with love by Natalie Fish of the home, devoted mother, Donna, step father, Lane and sister, Bailey Phillips of Muskogee, father Kirby Smith of Hulbert and brothers ,Ernie Pigg, Matthew Smith and Joseph Smith.
A memorial service will be held Tuesday, April 4, 2017 at 1:00 p.m. at Bradley Belltower Chapel in Muskogee. A memoriam balloon release will be held immediately after.
