Art Smith Obituary, Death Cause – On February 28, in the early morning hours, Art Smith, a retired fire captain, passed died unexpectedly when he and his friends were traveling in an RV. There is no information available regarding the events that led to his passing. When Art passed away, they had been married to one another for a combined total of 73 years; this was their longest marriage. His sons Russell and Greg, along with their wives and three grandkids, are the only members of his family who he does not take with him when he passes away. He also does not take his daughter-in-law.
During the course of Art’s long and illustrious career, he rose through the ranks of the San Benito/Monterey Unit as well as the San Mateo/Santa Cruz Unit. Both of these units are part of the San Benito/Monterey Police Department. These two properties can be found in the state of California. He was required to spend a considerable amount of time working in the CZU Emergency Command Center during the course of his career there.
Emeritus Status was bestowed upon Art as a token of appreciation and acknowledgment for the many years of dedicated work he provided to the Workers Association of Cal Fire Local 2881. This honor was bestowed upon Art in acknowledgement of the gratitude felt by the organization. This accolade serves as a sign of admiration for the field of art. At this time period, Art was selected to serve as the State Treasurer of Cal Fire Local 2881, a position that he was subsequently re-elected to hold several times over the course of his career.
Art has held the position of treasurer for the CDF/Cal Fire Wagon Train as well as the 25-year club on multiple occasions during the course of his career. Also, Art has been a member of the club for the past 25 years. In addition to this, Art was selected to serve on the board of directors for the Scotts Valley Fire Protection District and assigned to a position on the County Local Agency Formation Commission.
Both of these positions are appointed positions (LAFCO). A memorial service will be held for a family member who had passed away in the Santa Cruz area somewhere in the middle of the month of April. When the material does, at long last, become available, it will be disseminated to the largest possible audience in the shortest amount of time that is practically possible.
