March, 3, 1972 – January 11, 2022
Jason H. Smith, 49, of North River, NY, son of James and Karen (Ringler) Smith, passed away after a courageous battle with cancer on January 11, 2022.
Jason was born on March 6, 1972 in Glens Falls, NY. He graduated from Johnsburg Central School and went on to study at Schenectady Community College and Adirondack Community College. Jason entered the United States Airforce in 1990 where he proudly served for 11 years. His career was ended when he became ill with GBS. He came back home and worked at a few local business before starting his own plumbing business, S&S Plumbing Plus. Jason married the love of his life, Katrina (Richards) Smith on June 18, 2010 at Garnet Hill Lodge. Jason had a love for drumming, collecting knives and flashlights that never seemed to work. He was a fun loving, hardworking, dedicated husband, dad, brother, uncle, and son. Cancer took him from all of us too soon. Until we meet again!
