Dalton Carl Smith, 20, passed away peacefully the morning of Wednesday, February 28th, 2018 at Akron City Hospital. Dalton was born October 28th, 1997 in San Clemente, California.
Raised in Medina since the age of two, he attended Garfield Elementary School, Claggett Middle School and Medina High School. He was currently a sophomore at Akron University studying Mechanical Engineering.
Dalton played soccer on the Medina Rec team and for the Medina Rangers for most of his childhood. He played the trumpet for the Medina High School Marching Band and the Akron University Marching Band. He enjoyed fishing and all outdoor activities.
He was a kind and generous young man and in his brief time on Earth he touched many lives. In our grief we also rejoice that as an organ donor Dalton was able to enhance and save lives through organ and tissue donation.
He will be dearly missed by all.
An informal celebration of Dalton's life will be held 7 P.M., Saturday, March 10th, 2018 at Rustic Hills Country Club, 5399 River Styx Rd., Medina.
