In Memory of Martin John Smith

Marty Smith

Marty Smith, 56, resident of Cedar Park, Drake, Colorado died December 19, 2006 at his home.

Marty was born April 11, 1950 in Berkeley, California to Curtis W. and Mary Gent Smith. Marty grew up in Berkeley, California and Old Greenwich, Connecticut. As a youngster in Berkeley, he was adventurous, fearless at climbing trees, and one day when he was about four years old, he climbed the monkey enclosure at the San Francisco Zoo! Marty laughed often with his siblings and many friends. As a teenager in Connecticut in the 60ís, Marty was involved in exercising his rights of free speech. His supportive, loving parents encouraged each of their five children to pursue his/her own path. They wanted each child to be a strong, compassionate individual. Marty learned much from his parents.

Marty earned his BA in psychology at Southern Illinois University at Carbondale, Illinois in 1975. In 1979, he completed his Masterís degree in Clinical Psychology at Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches, Texas. He worked in Nacogdoches conducting neuropsychiatric examinations in a private practice office before moving to Fort Collins, Colorado in 1983. In Fort Collins, Marty worked as a mental health therapist at the Larimer County Mental Health Center from 1984 until 1996. After leaving the mental health profession, Marty held a variety of computer-related positions for Hewlett Packard, Volt and VMC. This year he enjoyed working with friends at the Foothills Flea Market in Fort Collins.

Marty and Ann Lundquist married in 1990 and they moved to Cedar Park in 1996. Marty enjoyed being a valued member of the Storm Mountain community, and sharing his life with Ann there. Marty was a passionate and playful man. He loved his family, his golden retrievers and his friends. He enjoyed many hours traveling with Ann on his Harley Davidson and his ATV.

Marty was preceded in death by his grandparents and his father. He is survived by his wife, Ann Lundquist of Drake; his mother, Mary Smith of Houston, TX and Louisville, KY; his sister, Sally and her husband, Dick Steere of Tamarac, FL; his brother Curtis E.
