It is with great sadness we say our final goodbyes to Jonathan Smith, beloved father, grandfather, brother and son who was dearly loved by all those who knew him.
On Thursday 21st January, we had the call none of us were prepared for. The one to inform us John had passed after having a seizure and collapsing. Despite all the efforts of the family, friends, police and ambulance crew around him, he did not pull through.
This came to a shock to all of his family and friends. It was something none of us could have ever predicted. He was and always will be loved by so many people but was unfortunately taken from us way to soon at the age of 43.
Jonathan was always the life of the party, leaving a smile on the faces of everyone he met. He loved all of his friends and family. He had done so much for so many people and this is now our time to give him the send off he deserves.
We started this GoFundMe page in the hope to raise money for Jonathan Smith’s funeral as none of us were prepared for the cost of a funeral service.
As John leaves behind his partner of 9 years Laura, 5 children aged 2 to 30 and 5 grandchildren, it is clear to say he will be missed by all.
All of the money raised through this GoFundMe will go towards funeral costs. Once this has been covered, all left over money will be given to his partner and mother of his two youngest children as well as donated to the British Heart Foundation.
