Timothy William Smith, 56, passed away on Thursday, April 4, 2013, from an apparent heart attack while vacationing at Holden Beach, NC. Tim was born on July 20, 1956 in Norwalk, CT to Douglas and Patricia Smith who survive him. Tim was the loving husband of Judy Smith, and father of Melissa Quirk (Tom) of Holly Springs, Douglas Smith (Julie)of Raleigh, and David Smith of Tampa, FL. He was also the adoring grandfather to Quinn T. Quirk and enjoyed every moment with him. Tim is also survived by his brothers Michael (Dolores) and Tracy (Lynda) also of CT.

Tim grew up in Wilton, CT, and received his B.S. and M.B.A. degrees from the University of Bridgeport. He worked for a variety of companies in CT before moving his family to Cary, NC in 1996. Shortly after, he began work providing financial services to area churches and non-profit organizations. He was currently serving 10 area churches where his attention to details, organization and uncompromising ethics were truly appreciated.
His family and many wonderful friends and colleagues will miss him terribly as he was one of the most humble, kindest, down to earth people God ever created. He had a wonderful sense of humor and enjoyed spending time with family and friends above all else.
