Our sweet little angel, Owen Luke Smith, gained his wings on August 30, 2019. His 10 month journey through life was a tough one, yet he never let it show. His crazy spirit and feisty attitude always kept everyone on their toes. Although he fought the best he could, God chose to call him home. Owen will be greatly missed by his parents, Joshua and Ellen Smith, and big sister, Alyssa Smith.
In addition to his parents and big sister, he was survived by: paternal grandparents, Jerri Smith, Rene J. & Alina Hebert; maternal grandparents, Scott & Connie Landry and Angela & David Eastridge, special grandfather Sammy Naquin. Great Grandparents Elliot & Lelia Landry, Anna Crotchet Hebert, Nora & L.J. Hebert, Velda & Douglas Bourg, Johnny & Shirley Smith.

He was preceded in death by big brother Jayson Smith, great-grandfather Harold Hebert, great-grandmother Evelyn Smith, special uncle Jesse Dugas, and other beloved relatives.
