Burton Dewayne Smith

October 29, 1967 — January 4, 2022

Burton D. Smith, 54, passed away peacefully at his home in Broken Arrow, OK on January 4, 2022 after a 5 ½ year journey with lung cancer. Despite the challenges of medical procedures and cancer treatment, Burt remained eternally faithful to the Lord. He continued to serve and care for his family, his church, his community, and the students, staff, and families of the Salado Independent School District.

Burt is survived by the love of his life, Jami Smith, of Broken Arrow, OK, children, Adalgis Hirwa Smith of Austin, TX and Sgt. Rosine Abuwe Smith, of Beauford, SC; mother, Coell Smith, of Sayre, OK, brother and sister-in-law, Ronald and Debbie Smith, of Thomas, OK, and sister and brother-in-law, Michelle and Johnnie Campbell, and their children, Avery, Brenay, Alex, London, Zeke, Cadence, and Natelie Campbell. Burt is preceded in death by his father, Dean Smith, and infant nephew, Johnnie Ray Campbell II.

Burt positively impacted everyone who knew him. There was not a family or work event that Burt did not contribute everything he had to the success of the event. Despite the rigors of cancer treatment, Burt still attended family events and volunteered at school functions when others told him to rest. Burt's wisdom, wit, and eternal optimism will be missed.

A memorial service will be held on Saturday, January 29th at 2 p.m. at Saint James United Methodist Church in Tulsa, OK. Located at 5050 E. 111th Street South Tulsa, OK 74137.
