SMITH, Henry Randal

It is with great sadness that we say goodbye to Henry Randal Smith, who passed away unexpectedly, March 11, 2021.

Henry was born February 5, 1962, in Toronto ON, to Finnish parents Mirjami and Klaus Hokkinen. He was later adopted by Doug and Arlene Smith.
Henry grew up in a loving home with the Smiths in Timmins ON, where he enjoyed spending time outdoors and at the family cottage. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, camping, skidooing and downhill skiing.
When Henry was 18, he headed to Yellowknife NT, to join his brother Paul to work in the gold mines. Eventually, he became a journeyman pipefitter. Over his 30-year career, Henry worked for a number of companies such as, Necro Con Mine, Kimberly Clark, Ledcor, Flint Energy, Kiewit, and SR. He went on to teach himself how to build and repair computers, and enjoyed playing computer games.
Henry adored his children and grandchildren and spent as much time with them as possible. When his children were younger, he could be seen cheering them on at their many figure skating competitions or enjoying Friday night movie nights. Although his daughters and grandchildren never had the opportunity to hear him play, he was a talented guitarist.
Henry eventually became part of a fellowship in which he maintained close friendships that he held dear to his heart.

Henry has left behind Tammy, their daughters Randi Madge (James) and Alana Moogk (Kevin) and five grandchildren: Damien, James, Nevaeh, Claudia and Leon; his adoptive mother Arlene Prevost (Smith), brother Allan Smith (Tammy), and sister Lori, as well as numerous nieces and nephews. Henry is also survived by many cousins and his aunt Terttu and uncle Arvo Hotari all of Finland. Henry is predeceased by his biological parents Mirjami and Klaus, older brother Paul and his adoptive father, Doug.

Cremation has taken place and a private service will be held at a later date.
For those wishing to donate in Henry’s memory, donations may be made to the Mustard Seed and the Salvation Army.

Henry will be sadly missed by his family and friends.

Sorry, there are no details found...

Henry was amazing guy to work with. I met Henry back in 2010 working in a pipefitting moudular yard. He was a great leader and great friend. Was really shocked when I heard what had happened. He was a big dreamer and followed through with his dreams and ambitions. He was a one of a kind gentlemen that will be deeply missed. God bless .

Cousin Henry
Life, circumstances, geography, and timing had not allowed for much earthly connection.
Planning on getting to know you better in God’s Eternal Heaven!
There’s coming a day when no heartaches shall come
No more clouds in the sky
No more tears to dim the eye
All is peace forever more
On that happy golden shore
What a day, glorious day that will be

I will always think of Henry as a kind and gentle man. I remember that Henry was a pretty darn good cook too❤
