Donald Sydney Smith

January 12, 1954 - September 23, 2020

Donald Sydney Smith of Virginia Beach passed away on September 23, 2020 at the age of 66. He was a considerate, cherishing man. He could hold conversations for hours and leave impressions on anyone who he had come across. Making the biggest discussion out of the smallest topic was his specialty. He had a strong dedication to his employment. Don started off in the Army, leaving after a few years. Donald continued his work force through the Navy for a strong 20 years, embarking on beautiful journeys around the world. After that, he pursued a truck driving job which continued his countless stories and adventures. Employing as a security guard was his last dedication in the employment field.

Donald loved life and loved making memories with his family. He enjoyed drinking interesting flavors of soda, watching old western movies, listening to the blues, collecting an unimaginable amount of CDs, sharing stories of his own, bonding with his dog Bella, and drinking milkshakes. Tragically, Donald’s adventures came to an end on September 23, 2020 during a short but strong battle with cancer.

He will be forever loved.

What our families say...

Altmeyer was incredible in their reliability and conscientious effort to detail. I personally worked from beginning to end with Joseph Limback. What an absolute blessing that was. From the first meeting we had a very easy communication path because Joseph took complete control to oversee our families welfare. Our family couldn’t have asked for better care and comfort of our love one.
