Longtime harness racing fan and participant Brent Donald Smith passed away on Friday, August 16, 2019, in the Town of Blue Mountains.

Brent was an avid horseman who frequented Orangeville & Barrie Raceways. He knew every horse and every stat, and never missed a beat or the opportunity for a hug or a high five!

'Brento' had an exceptional determination to live fully present in this world teaching us about the most sacred treasure of life, love. The purest heart, without ever a judgement, and his infectious smile that shone brightly upon the world everywhere he went, having more buddies in more places than most of us make in a lifetime. His friendship was a blessing to each of our hearts. May his lessons live on in us for eternity, and as he bestowed upon us, may we carry them forth with honour making the world a brighter place one smile at a time.

He is survived by his loving and loyal mother, Gale Smith, pre-deceased by his father and best friend, Donald. He will be missed by his siblings Donny Smith (Beth), Bobby Fuller (Lisette), Kim Day (Bruce), Kim Dawn Smith (Trevor), Tammie Wilson, Dawn Leppert (Ken), Aunt Donna McNabb (Don), Uncle Freddy Uggenti and a plethora of cousins, nieces, nephews and friends.

Visitation will be held on Thursday, August 22, 2019, at Chatterson Funeral Home (404 Hurontario Street, Collingwood) from 7:00 - 9:00 p.m. Funeral service will be held on Friday, August 23 at New Life Church (28 Tracy Lane, Collingwood) at 11:00 am. Luncheon to follow.

Starting at 2:00 pm there will be a celebration of life at the Georgian Bay Ballroom, Village Conference Center (242 Jozo Weider Blvd. The Blue Mountains, ON).

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Special Olympics of Ontario.

Please join Standardbred Canada in offering condolences to the family and friends of Brent Smith.

August 21, 2019 - 4:42 pmRIP Gentle giant. Brent was

RIP Gentle giant. Brent was always so happy to see me no matter if it was weeks or months between visits, and he always had a handshake ready! I’m sure he approached everyday of his life with the kindness and passion we all should. He should be a great reminder to people that life is for living, as I saw Brent live his life with kindness, each and every time he was at the track. My deepest condolences to Brent’s friends and family.
