Obituary for Gary Lee Smith

Gary Lee Smith
Gary Lee Smith, 63, of Racine, passed away unexpectedly on Friday, April 6, 2018, at his home.
Born in Hillsboro, IL, on October 6, 1954, he was the son of Ralph and Phyllis (Van Ostran) Smith. He moved to Somers, WI, as a child where he graduated from Mary D. Bradford High School and also from Carthage College with a degree in Business Administration.
On October 14, 1972, he married his high school sweetheart Terry M. Antes in Somers.
Gary was formerly employed with J.I. Case for 20 years before becoming a probation and parole officer for the State of Wisconsin. He retired from that in 2016. He was a member of Sacred Heart Catholic Parish in Racine and was an avid outdoorsman, enjoying hunting and collecting guns. Most of all, he enjoyed his grandchildren. Gary had a wonderful sense of humor and his family and friends will cherish his memory.
Survivors include his wife, Terry Smith of Racine; four daughters, Jo Ann (Harvey) Sernovitz of China, Karalyn (Thomas) Ciardo of Kenosha, Amanda (Jason) Hill of Stevens Point, and Catherine (Brian) Markovic of Menomonie, WI; his mother, Phyllis Smith of Milladore, WI; three brothers, David (Cherrie) Smith, Randy Smith, and Mark (Connie) Smith, all of Milladore, WI; a sister, Elizabeth (Jon) Murphy of Milladore, WI; and ten grandchildren, Jack, Zoe, Gabe, Xavier, Maria, Tony, Joey, Eve, Bella, and Milo. Gary is further survived by the many foster children he and his wife took care of over the years.
He was preceded in death by his father, Ralph Smith; and a nephew, Joshua Lang.
Visitation will be held on Wednesday, April 11th, at Sacred Heart Catholic Parish, 2201 Northwestern Avenue, Racine, WI 53404, from 11:00 a.m. until the time of the Mass at 1:00 p.m. Interment will follow at Sunset Ridge Memorial Park in Somers, WI. In lieu of flowers, memorials to Sacred Heart Catholic Parish would be appreciated by the family.
