 It is with immense sadness that we announce the passing of Daniel Smith. He left this world peacefully with his adoring wife and two children by his side. Dan was born and lived in Elgin although he traveled the world for his work and pleasure. He attended Southern Illinois University and graduated with a degree in chemical engineering. From a young age he was interested in go carts and that led to motorcycles and exotic cars. He pursued those passions along with an elaborate model railroad layout. He loved his family and his golfing buddies and was a great friend to all who knew him. Dan was truly a sweet and kind man and will be missed and loved forever. He is survived by his wife, Barbara; children, Lisa (Javier) Herrera and Andy (Patti); siblings, Joel (Pat), David (Renea), Linda (Terry); mother, Gloria; and many grandchildren and great grandchildren. Daniel was preceded in death by his father and his brother, Brad (Roxanna). Memorial services will be held on Tuesday, June 25, 2019 at 1:30PM at Laird Funeral Home.
