Bob Smith, 74, a resident of Park City, Utah, passed away May 6 due to complications from his battle with cancer over the past few months. A devoted family man and grandfather, he will always be remembered as a gentle giant who hand-sculpted miniatures, avid fisherman, amateur thespian, lover of computer games, and master of design and construction. Bob was wise, selfless, strong, quick-witted, funny, direct, kind, caring, creative and above all else humble. He commanded attention when he offered his opinion at work, but was also the life of the party when amongst close friends. He will be sorely missed by all who knew him.\n\nBob Smith was born on July 3, 1945, in Wheeling, West Virginia. After graduating high school in Martin’s Ferry, Ohio, Bob worked as a draftsman for architectural firms in both Kalamazoo, Michigan and Cleveland, Ohio and married his high school sweetheart, Peggy Lowry, on December 28, 1963. Bob and Peggy had three children, Christopher, Shannon & Jason and eventually moved to Orlando, Florida in 1973, where Bob began his over 20 year career with Disney as an architectural draftsman for Design and Engineering located at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida. Bob worked on multiple projects at the Magic Kingdom and was a part of the design and construction team for Epcot Center eventually becoming the Director of Design at Design and Engineering. Bob was promoted to a Vice President’s role when he joined Walt Disney Imagineering to oversee the design and construction of Disneyland Paris where he and Peggy lived as expatriates from 1988-1992. Upon completion of construction, Bob repatriated as a California based employee where he worked until he retired in 1993.\n\nAfter Disney, Bob moved to Atlanta where he worked on the 1996 Summer Olympics venues with O’Brien-Kreitzberg, Metreon shopping center in San Francisco with Sony, and Sea World/Busch Gardens projects with Parsons. Bob married his second wife, Rena Townsend on April 16, 1998. During their 22 years together, Bob and Rena resided in San Marino, San Francisco and Atlanta before they finally settled in Park City, Utah.\n\nBob is survived by his wife Rena Smith, his children Christopher Smith (Alix), Shannon Ross (Michael) and Jason Smith (Alisan), his step-children Susan Welsh-Churchill (Joe), Carol Vancil and Bill Tettelbach (Laura).
