Mr. Gary Wayne Smith, age 77 of Stuart, passed away Wednesday, April 24, 2024, at his home. He was born in East Orange, NJ on April 13, 1947, to the late Walter Edward Smith and Marion Elaine Smith. 

Gary served 8 years in the U.S. Air Force and was a Vietnam War veteran. He was extremely proud of his service. He loved to fly planes, drive boats, drive muscle cars, and drag race.

He was a world traveler and loved fishing, especially deep-sea fishing. He was an entrepreneur at heart, starting his first business at the age of twelve. Although he had many hobbies and loved going on adventures, Gary's favorite pastime was spending time with his family.
